Your Files, Mobilized
Our free mobile app is another reason to give a CrashPlan subscription a go.

Files at your fingertips and world at your feet—it’s go time. Learn More
Silent and Continuous
CrashPlan 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, CrashPlan automatically resumes when your computer becomes available again. And when you subscribe to CrashPlan Central, you can set your online backups to run as frequently as every minute. Learn More
External Drive Backup
Have more files to back up than a single hard drive can hold? Most of us do. No problem. CrashPlan 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. We'll keep your files safe and secure until you say otherwise. No limits. No hassles. No kidding. Learn More
We believe you have the right to back up all of your data. That said, not all files require the same level of backup protection. CrashPlan’s exclusive ability to create backup sets frees you to handpick and prioritize what files go where, and how often. What’s not to love about that? Learn More
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 CrashPlan, 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 CrashPlan Central. Learn More
A subscription to the CrashPlan Central cloud is an easy and affordable way to prevent your digital legacy from becoming history. And our simple online application, including email alerts, lets you keep an eye on everyone’s backup status—from grandma to high school graduate. Learn More
Deleted File Protection
The CrashPlan Central cloud is a regret-free zone. We 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 our part, if it helps reduce anxiety over accidentally trashing your data, it’s well worth it. Learn More
Have lots and lots of data (over 300 GB) to backup? If you're in a hurry to back those files up, our seeded backup service is for you. We'll ship you a seed drive with instructions for backing up your files locally. Simply return the fully-loaded seed drive and we'll jump start your backup for you. Learn More
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. Learn More
The file you're working on right now is the one most in need of backup, so CrashPlan 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, CrashPlan is silently crunching numbers in the background, de-duplicating data between all your files to keep your backups as small and efficient as possible. Learn More
