UMIACS Archives

When UMIACS archives data we hold onto the archive for a period of 5 years.

What we generally do archive:

  • the primary drive from hosts with persistent local data (Windows/macOS only)
  • accounts that are archived and deleted (including metadata, network home directory/directories, and GitLab repositories)

What we generally do not archive:

  • /tmp and /scratch directories (as discussed on our page about data storage)
  • External drives that were attached to a machine
  • Data that migrated forward to a new machine
  • Data that was handed off into the care of the end-user or PI
  • Data from drives that failed and was not under backup protection, that is unavailable for us to archive
  • Data from self-supported machines
