Restoring files from backup

As of 1/26/18 all of our shares (current, grad-catalogs, mediabeacon, sva-edu-redesign, va-journal, and viewbook) are being backed up daily onto a 40TB drive called Freezer which is connected directly to our MacPro server. To restore an item:

  1. In Finder –> Connect To Server (cmd +K)
  2. connect to smb://
  3. Choose Freezer as the drive to mount
  4. Browse Freezer to find the desired file
Note that the file that resides in the same location as the original (on Freezer) is the latest version of that file. Previous versions of the file, if they exist will be in a folder called _CCC SafetyNet, which will exist in the same directory as the file.
