The ARCTIC team implemented periodic backups of a user’s home and iRODs folders. We will keep a daily snapshot of your files for a month, weekly snapshots (Saturday) of your data for two months, and a monthly snapshot of your data for three months.
For users, this means that in June, you will have daily versions of your data available to restore from the previous 30 days, weekly versions for the previous 60 days, and monthly versions from the previous 90 days.
We will keep the January and June monthly snapshots in archive for 3+ years.
To have data restored from backup, please file a ticket at https://hydra.gsu.edu outlining what data needs to be restored. Please note that it can take hours to days to restore data dependent on size and number of files.
