Backup policy for storages

All storages are backed up once a day (normally between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m.), by snapshot backup. There backups are kept for 2 weeks. For a more complete understanding of how the data are backed up in MetaCentrum service, see the corresponding chapter.


User data are moved from time to time when hardware is replaced. See table of decommissioned storages to track back where your old data have been moved to.
