Unix Filesystem Backups at SLAC
Quick Links: AFS Restore Form
There are two primary network filesystems for UNIX in use at SLAC today: NFS and AFS. They are backed up in different ways, and have different schedules and different capabilities. However there are a few underlying policies that were followed in setting up both backup systems. Click on the link above for information regarding file backup and restoration on SLAC unix systems.
Windows Filesystem Backups at SLAC
Quick Links: Windows NTFS Restore Form
SCCS centrally maintained MS Windows filesystems NTFS and DFS.  This is done via File servers including those hosting the Z drive users' home directory, the V drive groups directory and MS IIS Web servers' data.  This data is backed up on a daily basis and should be viewed primarily as a disaster recovery mechanism, not as an archival system. This means that the backups are not retained forever.  Click on the link above for information regarding Windows filesystem backups.
