Email Backup on Campus

MiraCosta College's backup solution does not offer the opportunity restore individual email mailboxes.

To ensure that your email can be restored on demand, back up your email account to your H: drive as described below. At the server level, the H: drive is backed up each day and a copy is retained for thirty (30) days. This process can only be completed using PCs on campus only.

The back-up process may take anywhere from a few moments to over an hour depending upon the size of your mailbox.

Please contact the Employee Technology Help Desk ( with any questions or issues about this process (, 760.795.6850 or, x6850).
