How do I back up?

Back to July 2012 Newsletter | Back to July 2013 Newsletter

If you are working directly off anywhere on ESS or the Academic server, your files are backed up on a nightly basis.

If you have decided it is best to store your files locally and then back them up, you have a couple of options:

Options for all users

  1. "Drag and drop" to COPY your files from one location to another.
  1. Right click (Ctrl + click on a Mac) on a folder or file and select Copy and then go to the destination folder, right click  (Ctrl + click on a Mac) and select Paste. Mac users see below for additional information.
  1. Work directly off one of the central servers (ESS or academic)
Please contact the ITS Help Desk (helpdesk@hamilton.edu, x4181) for assistance configuring your computer for this option
