Research: Secure and Back Up Your Data

Safeguard Your Data

 

Use the 3-2-1 rule:

  • Store 3 copies of your data
  • Use at least 2 different storage media (thumb drive, hard drive, cloud storage, etc.)
  • Keep 1 copy offsite in a different location
 

Use an open format (like PDF, CSV or RTF) so you won't ever be stuck with files that you can't open due to software changes

 

Contact the library for more information about long-term preservation of your research data.
