Bucknell’s system automatically backs up your recent files in case you delete them by accident. To view the previous files, first navigate to your Netspace drive (U:). You should see the usual “Private” and “Public” folders that you should be used to. Your backed up files, however, are hidden. You need to enable viewing hidden files and folders. Click here to learn how to do this on a Mac. Once you enable it, you should see a folder called “~snapshot” (pictured below).


Open the snapshot folder and locate the folder with the date on which you had your files intact in Netspace. You can copy-paste these back to your Private or Public folder to restore your files.
