A backup of the files and folders on server gess-fs (personal home folder) and the NAS (group storage) is made daily by TSM (Tivoli Storage Manager) with a 3 month retention time.
There is no backup for data stored on local disks.
Additionally, 6 snapshots (checkpoints, aka previous versions) are taken on the home folders during 6 working days. As soon as a file or folder is modified or erased, its state at the defined previous point in time is kept and can be recovered by the user. The defined point in time are 07:00, 11:00, 12:00, 15:00, 19:00 and 23.00. Use cases for previous versions are:
- Files and folders unwanted deletion
- File corruptions
- Files overwritten
Please note that one daily previous version is available for Groups Folders.
If you need to get back to an older version please contact us by using the web form.
