Data Backup on the HFS

IT Services logoOxford’s central backup service, available free of charge to University staff and graduate students.

Backups can be set to run on a scheduled (usually weekly) basis, or can be performed manually. HFS stores multiple copies of your data, so it can easily be restored in the event of failure or loss of your hard drive.

For laptops and desktops, HFS works via TSM client software installed on your machine (so you may occasionally here the service referred to using this name rather than HFS). HFS also offers a server backup service, which is used by many departments.
