Computers on the University of Otago network are not automatically backed up by ITS.

  • ITS can provide a centralised backup service for all departmental servers – Windows (Win2K or later), Unix, Linux and Mac systems – on the campus networks. ITS also offers backup services for other business modules (Microsoft SQL, Oracle, Exchange and Cluster Clients)
  • A full system backup is performed weekly or monthly depending on your systems’ specifications. Every night all files changed since the previous full backup will also be backed up
  • Files can be recovered from backup as and when you need them

Please contact ITS to arrange to get your systems backed up or for more information about the file backup service.
