UMIACS conducts backups to provide accidental deletion coverage. We aim to provide 90 days of coverage, at one backup per night. However, this coverage may not be perfect, as our backups are very coarse. Depending on the size of the change and size of the file, backups may be periodically missed. Furthermore, files that change often may not have all versions backed up to 90 days, and files which were created very recently may not be backed up.
If you need anything from our nightly backups, please contact staff with the full path to the directory(s) which you would like to have restored.
