We store changes you apply to your data in a daily snapshot. This allows us to recover a copy of your data as it looked when the snapshot was taken. Daily snapshots cover up to the last 28 days.
Please Note: We provide extra capacity to store snapshots – limited to an additional 15% of the capacity you requested. If you regularly modify large quantities of data then we contact you to discuss purchasing additional storage capacity.
When your storage enters the last 12 months of its funded cycle we will begin to send reminders out at the following intervals.
Later reminders will be sent to school and faculty management as well as to the requester of the storage. If you have not responded and no agreement has been made to extend the use of your storage before the end of the paid period, then access to the storage will be prevented for 1 month, following this any data on the storage will be permanently and irreversibly deleted; there will be NO possibility of the data being restored or accessed again.
