Storage Policies and Maintenance Schedule

Backup Storage Policies

  1. Backups are performed daily.
  2. The number of backup versions that are retained varies. Files unchanged between backups will not be backed up more than once. Retained files include the current (latest) copy, two previous, and all older copies up to 30 days.
  3. When a file is deleted, it is only recoverable for 30 days after deletion. All other versions are deleted immediately.
  4. Archived files are kept for 1095 days (3 years).

Frequency of backups, retention periods, etc. can be changed depending upon unique needs associated with particular data and services.

Maintenance Schedule

We have reserved Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm for our maintenance window. Any backups or restores executed at that time will be delayed or possibly canceled while maintenance tasks are completed.
