data management
Data Management
  • Rule 1 – “data will soon fill all available space”
  • Rule 2 – “data will quickly fill all available space
  • Rule 3 – See Rule number 1
  • Failure to follow rules may lead to backup and system failures.
  • Data needs to be “culled” from time to time.
    • Encourage staff to clean their own folders.
  • This removes load from backup and restore processes
  • Culled data can be archived to CD/DVD/External Drive/other
data management one solution
Data management – One solution
  • Within Data Share, create a year folder
    • EG “2008”
  • Within this folder create all necessary sub folders.
  • All files used in 2008 are to be stored within this folder.
  • In 2009:
    • Create a new folder – “2009”, make 2008 read only
    • Create all necessary subfolders within this folder
    • If a file is used from the 2008 folder, copy it to the 2009 folder.
    • At end of 2009, archive 2008 folder to CD/DVD/Tape/other
user management
User Management
  • At start of each year:
    • Delete users who have left.
    • Move deleted users’ Homefolders to “deletedUsers”
    • The DeletedUsers folder can then be archived to CD/DVD/External HDD
    • Archive old data to CD/DVD/External HDD
