During the research project you will need to store your digital research data so it is secure and backed up regularly, but is easily accessible to those authorised to do so.


It is good practice to store only what you need to keep and keep at least three copies of crucial data. It is recommended that Data and definitive project documentation should be stored on the University of Sheffield research data storage infrastructure throughout the lifetime of the project. Copies may kept on remote storage (Google drive) and /or portable storage (External HDDs and USB drives).
