Locker

Locker is a file server used by classes and departments to share files.

Important Note: All data on locker is not backed up. If a file is deleted or the server fails, the files are not recoverable. Locker is only intended as a way to share files that are also stored elsewhere. DO NOT USE LOCKER AS THE PRIMARY LOCATION FOR YOUR FILES.

Locker is protected using a redundant array of disks (RAID), but this only protects against a single disk failure and does not allow for a file to be recovered when deleted.
