Information on the departmental Windows desktop backup service

CS has unlimited google drive space, and Google’s backup and sync is our preferred backup system for workstations and lab machines. You should use that to backup your workstation and laptop

We also recommend is that you use the main department file servers that are backed up to store data safely. This may provide slightly slower access, but the advantage is that the space on merry has several Windows system snapshots taken each day, so if you lose data you lose less than one day’s worth. And when you change machines, you don’t have to move your data.
