New: Root directory will be backed up

July 25, 2019

On Wednesday, July 31, ITS will expand the desktop backup service to include the computer’s root directory. Devices using this service will now also backup files stored in folders outside of the user profile.

Prior to this change, the service only backed up files within the user profile on the device.

Please note: Files within the Application or System directories will NOT be backed up.

This change will be made silently, and will not require individuals to restart their device or sign-in.
