Recovering Your UBfs Files

A copy of each folder in Myfiles is made every 2 hours weekdays between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. The 7 most recent copies are available. In addition, a daily snapshot is made at Midnight. The last 21 days of daily copies are available. On the first day of each month a monthly copy is taken, and retained for 6 months.
