Configuring CrashPlan

1. When CrashPlan launches, you will be prompted to log in. Please use your St. Edward's credentials.

2. After logging in, select which files you want CrashPlan to back up. By default, CrashPlan backs up your user profile. This includes your Desktop, Documents, Pictures, Music and Downloads folders. If you save data in other locations on your computer (like on the root of your hard drive), you will need to select those folders.

3. If you need to add folders or files to your backup, select your device and then select Manage Files. This will let you browse folders and files to add or remove in your next backup.

4. When you have finished selecting items to include in your backup, select Save.
