Laptop/Desktop backup solution for supported departments

Reed Sprague -

SoE IT is offering CrashPlan desktop/laptop backup services to Faculty and Staff in our supported departments.  This free desktop/laptop backup service is intended for backing up the office files on production workstations, things like Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, and Powerpoint presentations.  It's not intended to be a backup for personal MP3s, vacation photos, or research data.  

While the CrashPlan backup technology has been approved for use with prohibited data, ultimately we wouldn't recommend users store prohibited data on their personal workstations.  If you store prohibited data on your personal workstation, please create a ticket and we can review your situation with you.  There may be workflow suggestions or special encryption technologies that will increase the security of your data.
