Data Backup and Recovery

Data stored on workstations, whether desktop or portable, is vulnerable to hard drive crashes, viruses and even theft of the device. To provide additional protection, Information Technology offers a workstation disaster recovery service to faculty and staff UWSP owned computers. This service is currently available for Macintosh 10.6-10.8 and Windows campus load computers. Note: This service is not avaialble for personally owned computers.

The system is designed for disaster recovery purposes such as a hard drive crash, virus infection, theft or malicious activity. The DRS is not intended to be used for long term archival storage. You should always make copies of your most important work prior to making changes in case of human error. To help prevent our storage servers from being filled with unnecessary archival data please use CD-R or DVD-R media for information you plan to keep indefinitely.
