Desktop Backup


Chances are, you have lots of important files stored on your computer: email, research papers, financial documents, photos and more. Although ITS backs up and protects some files, there is a lot of data on computers that isn't backed up. If your computer crashed today, what would you lose?

Information Technology Services' desktop backup service is a simple and worry-free way to protect important files. Backed up data is stored in a secure, remote location for safekeeping, making it easy to restore lost data. In fact, it's never been easier to keep data safe.
