Centralized data Backup

Centralized_data.mdb and PHI.mdb live on an eHealth server and so are backed up by them (#eHealth file shares). We also created dated snapshot backups every time the data processor pulls data as part of vetting and then pushes it again. For details, see

Centralized backup locations

Following directories:

  • M:\Backup\Centralized_data
  • M:\Backup\PHI
  • X:\CCMDB\PHI\PHI_CSV_Archive


We only retain backups for a time. See Culling backups for details.
