Backups and Archives

Backups of machines managed by IT

Linux users: Data kept in your /home directory on departmental machines is backed up every day by IT (with some exclusions). Data kept in data and scratch spaces are not backed up.

Windows users:Your N: drive and the role drives are backed up daily.  The Desktop and My Documents folders are redirected to subdirectories of the N: drive, so these are backed up too. However, anything you save to drive C: will not be backed up automatically.

Backups of non Maths machines

Data kept on personal laptops and other computers that are not managed by IT is not backed up.
