Backup

If you use AU’s network drive (U), shared drive/folder (O) or AU’s SharePoint solution, you do not have to worry about back-ups as this is done automatically. Read more about AU’s data storage solutions. 

There are, of course, situations where data cannot be readily stored on network drives etc., for example when you collect data in the field or while calculations are being made.  In such cases, you should make sure that the data is backed up as soon as possible. In the meantime, AU recommends that you use alternative encrypted back-up options, such as an encrypted USB flash drive. Read more about encryption.  

If you have a special need, for example for very large data volumes, AU IT can help you find a suitable solution. Contact your local IT support team.
