Backup & Recovery

Keeping a good backup routine can spare you from unpleasant and sometimes costly computer problems. A computer's hard drive (the part that stores your data) is one of the least reliable parts in your computer, which makes it extremely important to keep a backup of your important files. While the Unversity highly recommends backups be completed, they are not required. 

The University provides an automated backup solution called CrashPlan ProE for all desktop and laptop machines. CrashPlan provides a secure Cloud storage backup that requires no input from the user after initial set up.
