Does May First/People Link backup my data?

Yes - we do back up all data on all of servers - both to an onsite backup server and an offsite backup server. Both backups run nightly.

Having said that... we always encourage our members to do their own backups. That's for a few reasons:

  • Our backups are designed primarily for disaster recover (the entire machine goes down). We cannot provide file recovery for accidental deletions or other mistakes.
  • No backup is fool proof. It's always a good idea for tripe or quadruple redundancy.
