Data Backup

If your important work data is in our cloud storage service (OwnCloud) then it is backed up. We strongly recommend that you put your important data into this.

Laptop Backup : Settings

You can backup your own laptop (settings, data, etc.) using an external storage disk. If you have encrypted your laptop storage (good), then please consider also encrypting your backup disk(s). External storage disks are available from IT Support, please just ask.

Using an external hard disk is not a complete backup solution. Disks break and data can be corrupted. Data in our OwnCloud service is fully backed up : off-site, offline and archive.

Some backup software options for use with an external hard disk are:


CrashPlan is a backup tool that makes incremental backups of your data and sends it over the Internet to the Crashplan service (files and connection are encrypted). It cannot backup an entire laptop for a restore of the system and software.

Please contact IT Support to get a CrashPlan account.
