Tivoli Check Backup App


Baylor in-house application


ITS provides regularly scheduled backups of all faculty/staff computers. The computer must be on and connected to the Baylor network when the backup is scheduled. Since many users have laptops and may miss the scheduled backup, the Check Backup application was created to allow you to perform your own backup as needed. If you just finished a major project, you also might want to initiate a backup immediately. It can also be used to check the date of your last successful backup and assist you with restoring a deleted file.


Check Backup is available for use on campus computers with our Tivoli backup system installed.
