    How long do you keep your End Of Year tapes for?

    Sorry if this is in the wrong area or it is posted elsewhere - had no luck searching..

    As the title says... I just wondered how long you are supposed to keep your EOY data tapes for? 1, 2, 5 years ???

    Is there a legal/Education requirement?

    Thanks for any advice in advance



    ps. Mods please move to correct section if req.

    Now we're out of BSF (when the oldest backup at any one time was 3 weeks!) - we keep our EOYs for 5 years.

    Fantastic. Thanks guys. According to those guidelines and if I am not mistaken then 1 year is the requirement

    Thanks again

    I'd argue depends what is on that tape, if it has records related to children its DOB of the child plus 25 years last time I looked, if they are looked after / SEN it changes things so worth reading into it and seeing what is on the tape.

    Hi John, it is mainly teacher and pupil home directories. SIMS data I agree may be a different matter.

    Thanks
