Backup of the HPC-Systems

A nightly backup of the data in /home is made. Data stored in the /scratch file systems is not backed up and cannot be recovered if deleted by accident or lost due to a file system failure.

Please note that even in /home, files contained within a directory called tmp or temp will excluded from the backup.

An incremental backup is performed every night and a full backup made every 6 weeks. If you need to recover lost data, please contact us at hpc@zedat.fu-berlin.de.

More information about the file systems can be found here:

Information about the general Backup Service at ZEDAT can be found here (currently only in German).
