UMIACS Archives

UMIACS archives data for a period of 5 years.

What we generally do archive:

  • the primary drive from UMIACS-supported machines with persistent local data (Windows/macOS only)
  • accounts that are closed (including metadata, network home 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 UMIACS-supported machine
  • Data that migrated forward from one UMIACS-supported machine to a new UMIACS-supported machine
  • Data that was handed off into the care of the end-user or PI via external drive
  • Data from drives that failed and was not under backup protection (unavailable for us to archive)
  • Any data from self-supported machines
