Code42 Backups and Remote Work Bandwidth Concerns
Some users of Cornell-managed computers who are now working remotely may have concerns about the impact of Code42’s backup processes on their available bandwidth. CIT recommends that users contact their unit's IT staff should they experience slow performance, near-constant backup activity, or other impacts on the usability of their computer that they feel are a result of their computer backing up files.
Because individual units have made local decisions about how backup clients are configured for their staff, CIT cannot provide a “one size fits all” guide for users—your local IT staff will be best able to assist you.
Unit IT directors and staff should consult configuration documentation on the Code42 Confluence webpage Backups over a home network for more information (IT admin login required).
