There are many options available for backing up your data. A basic backup strategy involves copying important files to a location other than your hard drive. Having more than one copy of important data is insurance against the loss of that data in an event such as a hard drive or system failure.
IT recommends using the Central File Share (CFS) service for your back up needs. The CFS service enables secure file storage on the Stonehill network for faculty, administrators and staff. Folders on the CFS are created for college departments and are commonly referred to as mapped, shared or network drives. The CFS is the most secure method to store college information and is backed up daily by IT staff.
Use of the CFS is required for confidential and internal use only information, as designated in F9.2 "Information Security Policy". It offers convenience, mobility and flexibility by making files centrally accessible from any computer either on campus or remotely connected to the network via VPN.
