CS Provides Backup And Restore Services
Nightly Backups & File Restoration
- The CS IT Support Group performs nightly tape- and disk- based backups of data on:
- The /users filesystem (Grad/Research Net)
- The /home filesystem (Ugrad Net)
- We are able to restore many files for users as needed.
Self-Service File Recovery For Grad/Research Net Users
- In addition to our tape & disk-based backups, we also perform special automatic online backups of the
/usersfilesystem on the Grad/Research Net only that allows Self-Service File Recovery in many cases, so you don't need to wait for us to do certain file restores.
- (This service is not available for Ugrad Net users at this time.)
Restoring CS Email Inboxes
- In certain instances, we can restore CS e-mail inboxes that reside on our CS email servers back into the systems' /var/mail directories or into your home directory, as long as the inbox was backed up the evening before by our systems. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details on what you need restored to your inbox.
NOTE: We only handle file restore requests during the regular M-F 8:30 to 5pm work day.
