We can think of few technology disasters worse than the loss of a laptop. Besides the sentimental value (RIP, Lappy), the demise of your computer or device can also mean the loss of all of your data — your important files, reports and presentations.That's why having a cloud backup of your device is so important. It can be a digital life-saver. So to help you protect your data, as well as the university's, we're introducing automated cloud backups for faculty and staff devices, including university-owned laptops and desktops.
CrashPlan is the tool and setting it up is a breeze. You can install it for Mac or PC completely on your own and on multiple devices if you have them. It's easy to download, but why should you?
No-fuss, automatic backups
Once installed, CrashPlan runs silently behind the scenes, backing up your computer in regularly scheduled and frequent intervals. Without any disruption to you, it will back up every version of every file on your machine.
Lost something? With one click, you can restore a lost file from CrashPlan to the device of your choice. No OIT assistance is necessary, though, of course, we're happy to help if you have questions.
Disasters don't tend to strike on anyone's schedule. With CrashPlan, you can restore your backed-up files 24/7.
Don't wait until it's too late. By installing CrashPlan now, you'll save yourself some headaches in the event of an emergency.
