Backup and Recovery

Recovery options if your machine data is lost:

  • Windows Shadow Copy Client  can be used, on your campus managed machine, to connect the Missouri S&T server backup copies for the past few days
  • All data stored on the campus is redundantly stored and routinely backed up at least once a day. These recurring backups are used for disaster recovery purposes; they are not intended to provide recovery for customer data. Individuals are encouraged to perform regular backups themselves using Google Drive and other external media like memory cards, external hard drives, and flash drives.

Don't wait until something crashes, use File Storage to protect your data:

  • Google Drive - online storage
  • S: drive 25 GB accessible with the campus standard Windows Install from on campus or off campus

Contact the Help Desk 573-342-4357, or submit an online help ticket if you need assistance with backing up or recovering data.
