Backups

WINDOWS SYSTEMS ARE ONLY BACKED UP WHEN THEY ARE ATTACHED TO CGD's WIRED NETWORK AT THE MESA.

If you typically leave your system at home, please bring it in occasionally so it gets backed up. Backups run automatically, so if your system has been offline because you've been out of the office, the backup will initiate as soon as you connect to the wired network. Keep in mind that this may slow down the machine for a few minutes.

Anti-Virus Scans

The anti-virus client runs defintion updates and a scan once a week. If you attempt to interrupt a scan, it will simply restart at the next system startup.
