Data Bites: Backing up your stuff

Thursday, January 19, 2023 at 1:00pm to 1:30pm

Virtual Event

Computers can get lost or stolen. Data can become corrupted. Hardware can fail. Setting up a solid backup system is key to avoiding data loss and restoring your data when catastrophe strikes. This session will cover what a good backup system looks like and what resources are available at MIT to help you confidently back up your stuff. This workshop will be over Zoom and the link will be emailed to participants.
