Your home directory contains a hidden directory .snapshot which is not visible even with ls -a. Change into that directory to find timestamped versions of your home directory. Snapshots are created once per day. Project (leased) storage also has a .snapshot directory. Neither Value (leased) nor Rivanna scratch storage is backed up in any way. Why should I lease storage? Leasing storage from Research Computing means that you do not have to run your own data server or backup system.
  • Graphical SFTP/SCP Transfer Tools

    Several options are available to transfer data files between a local computer and Rivanna through user-friendly, graphical methods. Off Campus? Connecting to Rivanna from off Grounds via Secure Shell Access (SSH) or FastX requires a VPN connection. We recommend using the UVA More Secure Network if available. The UVA Anywhere VPN should only be used if the UVA More Secure Network is not available. Only Windows and Mac OSX operating systems are supported. Linux users should refer to these unsupported instructions to install and configure a VPN. Open OnDemand users do not need a VPN to access Rivanna. MobaXterm MobaXterm is a Windows application that combines an ssh client for logging in, a graphical secure-copy client for easy drag-and-drop file transfer, and an X11 server for displaying graphical applications.
