21 21 Projects should develop clear backup procedures. Documented procedures are necessary to ensure that data are backed up according to policy and that procedures to recover from problems are established and widely known ([[DataONE, 2011c>>anchor="DataONEc"]]). Procedures should identify all data that are to be backed up. They should set a clear schedule for making backups that is tailored to the data collection process ([[DataONE, 2011a>>anchor="DataONEa"]]). Streaming data should be backed up at regularly scheduled points in the collection process ([[DataONE, 2011a>>anchor="DataONEa"]]).

23 -Procedures should identify who is responsible for creating the backups, including alternatives in case one person is unavailable (DataONE, 2011g). Backups may be automated, in which case someone should be responsible for regularly checking that they are being made There may be different backup procedures for different data sets ([[DataONE, 2011c>>anchor="DataONEc"]]). Multiple versions of backups should be kept, e.g., to be able to recover from file damage that is not detected immediately.

25 -Finally, the procedures to recover from a backup copy should be described ([[DataONE, 2011a>>||anchor="DataONEa"]]), both for single files as well as for recovery from catastrophic failures, and responsibility for recovery assigned. The procedures should ensure that backed up data are subject to the same protections as the original data (e.g., that confidential data are protected). Further, in the event of a failure, it is important to ensure that the backups will not be damaged by the same problem.
