Backing Up Remotely

Remotely backing up your data involves copying your important files to a location that is not attached directly to your computer. Generally, this means copying your data over a network to a location on a file server. The University provides many options including OneDrive, g.harvard, Sharepoint, departmental network shares and CrashPlanProE. This can be useful in cases of hard drive failure, fire, flood, or other disastrous situations that not only could cause your computer components to fail, but also could cause damage to hardware near your computer. Another advantage of this type of remote back up is redundancy and accessibility across multiple systems. 

The University provides Crashplan ProE back up solution which stores securely off site in the Cloud. Please contact us to set up.
