Frequently Asked Questions
Repository Hosting creates hourly backups for our own disaster recovery plans. If something were to happen to our system as a whole, then we would restore it from the last available backup, which would be no more than one hour old. We keep these backups with decreasing resolution over time, for more than a month.
It should not be necessary to keep your own backups at all. However, we do provide a scheduled backup facility for your peace of mind should you wish to do so. You can even have your backups automatically copied to an Amazon S3 account of your choosing. Scheduled backups are free, of course.
