Data snapshots of the scratch in Hydra#

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of data snapshots for the shared scratch storage of Hydra. Data snapshots save the state of your files and folders in the past, allowing to recover lost data from your account.

The storage of your VSC_SCRATCH and the VSC_SCRATCH_VO of your Virtual Organization now have daily snapshots for the past 7 days. Therefore, your data in scratch is protected against accidental deletion of files and folders in the past week and recovered files will have 24 hours of missing changes at much.

This protection adds up to what we already offer for your home directory and VSC_DATA, which have snapshots going back several months.

Check the updated FAQ “I have accidentally deleted some data, how can I restore it?” to learn how to recover lost files in your account.
