Back up

This page describes how data is backed-up at ARSF-DAN.

Back-up data should be linked from /users/rsg/arsf/backups/

The PML overnight back-up only covers home directories and does not make copies of anything on the arsf data storage disks.

We therefore have our own scripts to backup things nightly to a different server.

There are two type of back-up:

  1. Mirror of arsf_data:
    This is located at ~arsf/backups/arsf_data_mirror/. It is an exact copy of everything under ~arsf/arsf_data/ EXCEPT flights which have been archived with NEODC.
    If you accidently delete a file in arsf_data while processing, you can come here and retrieve a copy, as long as it was present for the overnight backup.
