Automatic Backup of Managed Workstations and Servers
Your data is backed up on a regular schedule. The last 30 days (or even more, on a best effort basis) are backed up on our backup server and are accessible by the user to restore files. This includes
- Backup of Homedirectories
- Backup of Groupdrives
- Backup of Webshares
- Backup of Managed Workstations
Access Backups to Restore Data
Most of these backups can be restored by yourself. Connect the network share with the backups and simply copy the files to where you need them.
Restoring Emails from the imap folder is a bit more tricky. Please get in touch with us to have emails restored from backup.
Backup Folder Structure
Your personal directory contains 2 subdirectories, each containing folders with the individual backups organized by date and time.
$USER/ | |--2014.09.01_210002/ Homedirectory of September, 1st |--2014.09.02_210002/ " of September, 2nd |... groupdata/ | |--my_share_1 |--2014.09.01_210002/ my_share_1 of September, 1st |--2014.09.02_210002/ " of September, 2nd |... |--my_share_2 |--2014.09.01_210002/ my_share_2 of September, 1st |--2014.09.02_210002/ " of September, 2nd |... |...
Backups are typically done during the night - so the folder named
2014.09.01_210002 contains data of September 1st 2014 at 21:00:02.
