III. Automatic Backups/ File Cleanup

A. Goal II update:

i. A proposal was made that users should manually save their files on the S network drive or that their "My documents" folder be mapped on the network drive. Possible problems pointed out would be loss of network connection and lack of space for individual users.

ii. Second option mentioned was to use the automated backup used in Camden. John Gibson will send the information about the application to Nick. This application can be used to backup local profiles on a daily, weekly, and a monthly basis.

iii. Option to use the native MS-Windows backup application was also mentioned. This will be decided upon at the next meeting. Also to be discussed will be the hard drive space that would be necessary for backup.

iv. File cleanup - User to remove old/junk files. One option for exit procedure would be for Nick to copy files from the S drive onto a CD and hand it to the supervisor. Then the user's S drive will be wiped clean. Another option would be for Nick to move the user's files to the departmental folder. During Windows migration, Nick will not move the files of users who have left the department to the domain. If the files are needed, the department will contact Nick.

v. Chris Singh will send a list of folders to Newark users to clean up.
