ICT creates a backup of all files kept on Cabinet. This is done on a nightly basis and files are available for retrieval for up to six weeks. Please note that any file you create and delete within the same day will not be part of the overnight backup and therefore cannot be restored.
If you have deleted a file and would like to restore it to the most recent backed-up version, or if you would like to return to an earlier version of a file, you can access all previous versions backed up in the past six weeks:
Note that you can open the previous version of a file and use copy and paste to recover a portion of a file if that's all you need to get back.
Macintosh and Linux users can restore their own files by connecting to 'restore.usask.ca' using Remote Desktop Connection software. Off-campus Windows users may also want to use this service.
In the event that you are no longer a student or employee of the University your Cabinet files are archived.
Cabinet Archives: When you are no longer eligible for the Cabinet service as a student, faculty, or employee, your Cabinet data will be archived. Eighteen months after you are no longer affiliated with the U of S, your archived files will no longer be retrievable.
Please contact the Help Desk for assistance with file recovery after leaving the University.
