Backup & Files Services
CrashPlanPROe Desktop Backup Services
An easy to use cross-platform backup software allowing you to easily backup and restore your data quickly and securely using 448-bit encryption. This software is available to all MSL faculty, staff, researchers, and students. This allows you to securely back up to our MSL CrashPlanPROe Server (crashplan1.msl.ubc.ca) located in the CHiBi server room within the School of Population and Public Health (SPPH) building.
Additionally, you may also add a local backup destination such as USB/Firewire external hard drive. Both options allow you to additionally set a personal password to restrict viewing and restoration of your files under the Settings->Security section. See User Guides for more information. Recent changes to licensing now allow MSL and CHiBi CrashPlanPROe users to back up to 4 devices.

Warehouse File Services
Warehouse is the name of our central secure file server. Every MSL faculty, staff, and student is encouraged to use this free service to store shared lab research data. Crashplan backups your Desktop data but Warehouse allows you to easily share data within your lab. Easily access your lab's shared data on and off campus via the Internet.

Note: We are in the process of replacing Warehouse with a new service called Collab. Collab expands file sharing capabilities of Warehouse with support for file revisions, metadata, web collaboration, and mobile device support. Please refer to our Projects section for more information on this service and any other services we have in development.
Home Drive Storage Service (UBC IT)
Similar to Warehouse this is an additional UBC IT provided data storage service to securely store your files. Unlike Warehouse this service is limited to UBC employees requiring an EAD account. This service is not for sharing files. If you need to share the content of your Home Drive with others, it will need to be copied to an alternate location such as Warehouse.
Visit the UBC IT Home Drive Storage Service website service catalogue for complete information and setup instructions.
