CrashPlanPROe is a cloud-based backup solution that keeps a secure copy of your data. You can then access this copy to restore your data if your hard disk crashes or if your computer is lost or stolen.
CrashPlan is licensed for College-owned computers only. You can't install it on personally-owned computers.
CrashPlan backs up the user directory--the place where all your files and personal settings are stored--on Windows and Macintosh computers. It does not back up system files or application programs. In the event you suffer a catostrophic failure (crash, loss, or theft) of your College-owned computer, Amherst IT would first replace the computer; you could then restore your data from the CrashPlan backup.
