Backup your documents and desktop folders

Backup your Desktop + Documents Folders on your Computer

When was the last time you backed up your laptop? Last week, last month, never? What would you do if you lost all of the data on it? Laptops can be lost, stolen or damaged. While you can replace the hardware, you may never be able to get the data back.

For OIT managed laptops, you can now easily backup your Documents and Desktop folders to our servers even when you are on the go. If you are on campus and connected via an Ethernet cable, backups are automatic.

We have instructions for both Windows and Mac laptops. Start backing up your data now and have one less thing to worry about.
