The College offers three data storage options.
Nasuni – Your Home drives. 25GB limit, files are backed up nightly and easily restored if issues arise.
Google Drive – Unlimited storage, off-campus so can be slow depending on file size. Files are also restore-able.
Big data – Generally used for Research data. Anything over 100GB that you need access to fast would best be served here. Files are backed up and easily restore-able.

Data Management Plan
Restoring versions of your data
You are able to restore your own data via all supported storage solutions.
- Nasuni/NAS – On a Windows computer you can right click on the folder or the file and restore a previous version of that file. If the file was completely deleted you will need to contact ITS to have the file/folder restored. Mac users, you need to use a Windows computer to do this.
- Google – you can open the file and go to File > revision history. More in-depth instructions are available here: https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2409045?hl=en
