IRIS would like to encourage the EECS community to keep appropriate backups of important data. To that end, IRIS is making EECSbackup scripts available to Windows and MacOS users. We continue to recommend that important files be kept in your EECS home directory, where snapshots and backups are routine, to safeguard against laptop or desktop hardware failure; these backup scripts can help you simplify the copying of your important local data from your laptop or desktop to your EECS home directory.
EECSbackup scripts are currently being provided as a “public beta” release; feedback to help@eecs is welcome.
How much does it cost?
The costs are based only upon the usual costs of file storage in your EECS home directory, which are detailed here. The file storage charges beginning in July 2008 are significantly lower than in past years, so this is an ideal time to make sure that your local files are backed up to EECS fileservers.
Do I have to use one of your EECS backup scripts?
No. You are always free to handle your own copying of important files to your EECS home directory. The provided backup scripts are simply intended to make it easy to set up a simple regular backup.
