Personal File Storage and Backup
Duke offers services for storing, backing up, and recovering your personal files. Note that as a faculty member or staff, you may have access to additional file space provided by your department (for example, via Novell, Windows, or Lotus Notes). For details on your department's file storage services, contact your department's IT support staff. For enterprise-level backup solutions, read about enterprise TSM backups.
CIFS-supported personal home directories
Personal file storage is provided via CIFS.
Use WebFiles to access shared file spaces.
Personal Computer File Backup
If you rarely perform file backups or use a flash drive or other external device to back up important files on your personal computer, you run the risk of losing your files. Duke has partnered with Iron Mountain, an industry leader in information protection and data storage, to provide the Duke community with Connected®, a PC file backup and recovery solution. Duke faculty, staff and students may subscribe at a discounted rate.
