The CS department hosts user data on ZFS, a filesystem that includes native support for snapshots. We take snapshots of all of our partitions every 24 hours. 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”).
