How do I restore files on people.uic.edu?
Your home directory on people.uic.edu is backed up once a day. We keep five (5) most recent backups in read-only snapshot directories located in /mnt/snapshot. The backup process takes place in the very early morning, so the oldest backup of your account will usually be from four days ago.
To retrieve a file or directory from the snapshot, connect to your account using SFTP. If you are comfortable with the command line, SSH is also an option.
