Information Services Helpdesk 472-3970 can be contacted after-hours for client support and will be provided on a best effort basis.
Client/Customer Responsibility:
Verify operating system and device meet minimum requirements. Sign up for program via Nsave.unl.edu, self install NSave Client, or arrange for NSave Support Specialist to install.

Program Fees:
Self service installation of NSave Client $0, Custom NSave install by Support Specialist $10, one-time fee. The cost per account is $5.00 a month which is billed to the cost center number provided when you signed up for the service.

Program Renewal/Termination:
The NSave service will continue until written notification requesting termination is provided to the NSave Administrator from you by either campus mail or email. Program fee or other changes will be communicated prior to activation.


Detail Specifications:
Number of backups and length of retention:

The backup software runs in the background when your computer is on and connected to the UNL network. There will be 7 daily backups, 12 weekly backups and one 6 month backup. Once the file is removed/deleted from the client’s computer, NSave will maintain the most recent backup version for 180 days.


Program Administration:

NSave Administrators will maintain the NSave server 24 hours a day 7 days a week. NSave Administrators will assist with client issues during normal University operating hours. Information Services Helpdesk 472-3970 or toll-free (866) 472-3970 can be contacted after-hours for client support and will be provided on a best effort basis. The data is stored in the cloud which is located in Code 42’s data center. While every attempt is made to ensure Client NSave files are always available, no guarantee is made and any “super critical” files should (also) be backed up and stored off site through a different program.

Scalability: Not Applicable
