Information Technology provides one license for each full-time faculty and staff member, for use only on ACU-owned computers. Please contact the Help Desk at x4357 if you do not have a backup solution.
What are my other back-up options?
External hard drives and software can be purchased through the Helpdesk. For backing up Windows machines to an external drive, we support the use of Windows 7 Backup and Restore (free with Windows 7). For Apple computers, we support Apple Time Machine (free). For both platforms, Xythos is also an option if only a small amount of space is needed. If you need assistance with any of these options, please contact the Helpdesk.
What gets backed up, and how much space do I get?
Users receive unlimited back-up space, though the speed at which files are backed up slows significantly after the first 200gb. Most non-replaceable files such as documents and images are included, while program files, system files, and applications are excluded. Read the detailed list of file types that are not included. By default, only files in the user profile (see above) are included.
If you have questions about our new backup system, please review our FAQ page or contact the Helpdesk.
