Files can be saved to your personal AFS space using the network connection that is connected when you login to a Windows computer.  You can save your files to removable media on any of the Windows Login computers. The programs on the Selected Resource workstations can usually e-mail their results to a mail account, or save to a USB flash key.

Mac OS X - On a Macintosh system space you will see your AFS space mounted as a drive icon on the desktop. If you do not, you must click on the icon in the Dock to connect to your AFS space.
