This page explains how to restore both individual files and restoring an entire disk for files that have been backed up using the ACCC network backup client.

Selecting Files to Restore

As of December 20, 2014, UIC's Blackboard login system was upgraded to a single sign-on with other UIC apps like Google Apps, Lynda, Box, and now Blackboard Learn.

As a result of this change, the .bb accounts that faculty and staff used to preview their course sites from a student’s view were deactivated. Instead of the .bb accounts, the new Student Preview feature will automatically generate a student user within Blackboard Learn courses, thus eliminating the need for two separate accounts.

Any Content Item, including Course Links, External Links, Folders, Learning Units, Off line Content and Tools can be copied from one folder or Course to another folder or Course. Copying content does not delete the content from the original location unless Delete Item After Copy is selected. Content that is deleted after a copy is moved to the new location and does not exist in the original location any longer.

NOTE: Folders may not be copied from other parts of a Course into a Learning Module.

The grace period lasts throughout the term during which the student did not register for classes, and ends sometime in the middle of the next term. For example, if a student registered for Spring 2011, but did not register for Fall 2011, their NetID will remain in grace period throughout Fall and into Spring 2012.
