Server Backup

The primary reason for server backups is to be capable of rebuilding data in the instance of a server malfunction. At present, all FSB servers are backed up at 10:00 p.m. daily by MCIS. Each server back-up normally takes one to three hours, depending on how much information has been modified. The FSB server normally takes five to six hours; most modifications occur with files on this server. A full backup is performed once every three months and incrementally nightly (saving only files that have been modified since the previous night's backup). Warning: only three copies of a file are saved. (Example: If a file was modified last week on four different days, the first day's copy will be lost.) The backup is for all servers, including web.
