How to install CrashPlan PROe
How would I use the CrashPlan PROe service?
Once the software client is installed, files and folders that you select are backed up whenever the computer is connected to the Internet. You do not need to remember to initiate a backup; it happens automatically according to a schedule you set. Any files you choose to backup will be encrypted and securely stored on a server that is off-campus (in the cloud). You can access and restore them without contacting S&T IT.
What are the key features of CrashPlan PROe?
- Easy-to-use interface- Windows, Mac, or Linux computer can be backed up- Data is encrypted end-to-end during transfer to the the cloud and while at rest on the remote server- Previous versions are kept for each file- You can choose which files and folders are backed up, and you can restore them yourself.- Backup data is compressed to minimize interfering with day-to-day work- For more information, see http://www.crashplan.com/enterprise/features.html
