Backup and Recovery

NetFiles does not provide file-level restorations, and backups are limited to disaster recovery purposes only.

However, in place of the file level restore, the University does not delete files users have sent to trash. It is recommend that groups allow a limited number of people to access and empty users' trash, so if a file is accidentally deleted, it can be recovered from the trash.

In addition, previous versions of files are available so if a file is accidentally overwritten, the older version can be recovered.
