The CS department stores home directories and project directories on ZFS, a filesystem that includes native support for snapshots. We take snapshots every 24 hours, and store them for one month. These snapshots are stored locally as well as backed up to an offsite location.

If you need a file restored from the snapshot, please send a helpdesk ticket to and include the full path name of the file (for example “/u/abc1de/public_html/myvacation”), and the date of the snapshot needed (ex. “from two days ago”).
