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.
Please see the EECSbackup FAQ page for more information.
