Only CrashPlan for Windows offers local and online backup that's automatic, secure and cross-platform. Whether you need to back up one laptop at home or up to 10 for the family, CrashPlan for small business delivers multi-destination protection that maximizes convenience, flexibility, and rapid restores. It's free to back up locally and to friends and family, and it's just a few dollars a month for unlimited online backup with a CrashPlan Central subscription.

Features and Highlights

Triple Destination Protection™
Enjoy free backup to an external drive and any trusted, internet-connected computer. Or experience the full trifecta of fearlessness with a subscription to the cloud-based destination, Central. Only It offers such comprehensive protection.

Truly Unlimited
Whether you require gigabytes or terabytes of online backup, a subscription to the app Central cloud will set you free from file type and size roadblocks.

Stepped-up Security
Its subscribers can surround their digital life with 448-bit encryption, including a private key option. This rare combination of security measures creates a virtually impenetrable “force field” around your data. What’s more, it has taken extra steps to ensure data centers comply with military-grade security standards and conform to industry best practices for power redundancy, cooling, and fire protection.

Your Files, Mobilized
A free mobile app is another reason to give a subscription a go. Along with continuous protection of your complete digital life, you’ll enjoy ready access to all your computer files from virtually anywhere, at any time. Files at your fingertips and world at your feet—it’s gone time.

Silent and Continuous
The program is your silent computer backup partner, protecting your precious files and folders in real-time. Designed to use minimal CPU power, you won't even know it's running. If your backup is interrupted, or you put your computer to sleep, It automatically resumes when your computer becomes available again. And when you subscribe to the app Central, you can set your online backups to run as frequently as every minute.

External Drive Backup
Have more files to back up than a single hard drive can hold? Most of us do. No problem. The program computer backup has all your external hard drives covered. You can even remove and later reattach external hard drives without restarting the backup—no matter how long they’ve been disconnected. It keeps your files safe and secure until you say otherwise. No limits. No hassles. No kidding.

Generous Retention and Versioning
In real life, there’s no living in the past. But you call the shots when it comes to your digital life. With the tool, it’s easy to go back in time to a precise version of a file or folder. What’s more, there’s no limit to how many versions you can back up to Central.

A subscription to the Central cloud is an easy and affordable way to prevent your digital legacy from becoming history. And simple online application, including email alerts, lets you keep an eye on everyone’s backup status—from grandma to high school graduate.

Deleted File Protection
The app Central cloud is a regret-free zone. Keep your deleted files forever (unless you tell us not to), so no matter how much time passes after you trash a file, you can dig it out. And while this means a larger investment of resources on a part, if it helps reduce anxiety over accidentally trashing your data, it’s well worth it.

Seeded Backup
Have lots and lots of data (over 300 GB) to backup? If you're in a hurry to back those files up, seeded backup service is for you. Crash Plan ship you a seed drive with instructions for backing up your files locally. Simply return the fully-loaded seed drive and jump start your backup for you.

Restore-to-Door Priority Recovery
The quickest way to recover your files (and emotional footing) after an epic data loss. With this optional service, you will receive a hard drive loaded with your data, so you can restore files locally in just a few hours.

Smart Backup
The file you're working on right now is the one most in need of backup, so the program backs up your most recent files first, then makes sure you have a full backup at one destination as soon as possible. Even while you're working, It is silently crunching numbers in the background, de-duplicating data between all your files to keep your backups as small and efficient as possible.

Note: 30 days trial version.

What's new in this version:

Enhancements and updates:
- The names of the most recent log files now end with .0 (for example, service.log.0). This reverts a change introduced in Code42 app version 7.0 in which ".0" was removed from the end of the most recent log file
- Manually adjusting the Code42 app memory allocation now enforces a minimum value of 128 MB. (Setting the value lower than this could leave the Code42 app in an inoperable state)
- On Mac devices, files with the com_apple_backup_excludeItem metadata attribute are no longer excluded from backups

Bug fixes:
- Security updates
- Performance and stability improvements to backup processes
- Corrects an issue in which devices with slow or frequently interrupted network connections could incorrectly report a restore as 100% complete if the connection timed out before the restore is complete

Fixes several minor user interface issues related to pausing backups:
When a backup set is complete but paused:
- The Code42 app now displays a gray disconnected icon instead of the green completed icon
- Corrects an issue in which the Resume button did not appear
- Corrects an issue when backups are paused in which the Pause option could still appear in Code42 app menus
- Users no longer have the option to select Pause All Backups if the administrator disabled pausing. This was a display issue only; selecting this option did not actually pause backups
- The Code42 Windows notification area (tray) and Mac menu bar apps now more clearly display when all backups are paused and provide a single link to Resume
- After adding or removing a local destination, the Code42 app now remains on the Destinations tab. Previously, the app redirected to the General tab.
Improvements to logging
- On Mac devices, removes the unnecessary .Trashes file from the .dmg app package
- On Windows devices, corrects an issue in which uninstalling the Code42 app did not properly remove some files in the C:/ProgramData/CrashPlan/conf directory. (For a standard uninstall, it is expected that some files do still remain in this directory to simplify reinstalling the app later)
- Corrects a rare issue on Windows devices in which the notification area (tray) app did not automatically re-launch after a Code42 app upgrade
- The replace device wizard now simply indicates "this device is signing in for the first time." Previously, it stated the device had "never backed up"
