Nightly backups of both user and project directories are a complementary service provided through the University at Buffalo central IT department. Backups are retained for 30 days.
To request a restore of deleted files, please submit a ticket to CCR Help. Please provide the full path of the directory you would like restored and the date and time you would like us to target. We can not guarantee a file has made it to the tape backup. Backups of our systems take nearly 24 hours.
For more information about our data retention and backup policy, please see this knowledgebase article
