- Files and data cannot be saved to the laptop. Laptop memory will be cleared when powered off; data saved to other equipment will be deleted when returned.
- Battery power for the equipment may not last the entire checkout period; the Library recommends checking battery power and frequently saving personal files to a flash drive, network folder, or email account to prevent loss of work.
