How do I retrieve files that were deleted by mistake?

A snapshot of your AFS home directory is taken daily between 10 PM and midnight. You can only retrieve files from the latest snapshot.

Log in to AFS. How?

  • Go to the (read-only) BACKUP-AFS.ACCOUNT directory in your home directory
    • You can copy any files located in BACKUP-AFS.ACCOUNT to anywhere in AFS or locally that you have permission to write to
  • Alternatively, enter "get.backup" (available mid-April 2015) at the prompt, and follow the instructions
