Copying Data over to Your Personal IGIS Folder
____ 1. Start ArcCatalog: make it occupy the full monitor screen. Expand [___]. Expand IGIS-Arc. Click Wildcat_Boat_Data. Right-click the selection and pick Copy. Select
___IGIS-Arc_YourInitials
Right-click the selection and pick Paste.
____ 2. Using almost the same technique as in Step 1, copy and paste
[___]IGIS-Arc\Other_Data
into your folder, except this time use Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V for copy and paste.
____ 3. Collapse the Catalog Tree as much as possible, then expand the entries (except for Village_Data) in
___IGIS-Arc_YourInitials
as much as possible. The Catalog Tree should look something like Figure 1-30. If it doesn’t, remove the folder Wildcat_Boat_Data from
___IGIS-Arc_YourInitials
and try again.
(Again, be careful not to remove the folder
___IGIS-Arc_YourInitials
because, if you do, your Fast Facts File will depart with it.)
Come to think of it, now would be a good time to back up your Fast Facts File. Put it on a thumb drive, a flash drive, a network drive, or e-mail it to yourself. Maybe you should make a couple of backups, using different methods. It is rare that a person has too many backups; it is quite common to not have enough.
