CrashPlan is a cloud backup solution designed for individual users, but administered and secured by UC Davis Information and Educational Technology. CrashPlan backs up data automatically with no user effort or intervention required anywhere your computer has an Internet connection. Users can restore data directly from the CrashPlan application on their computers with the option to choose a specific version of the data from a specific point of time.

UC Davis administers unlimited backup storage for four devices per user.  The system backs up changed files in a continuous and incremental “trickle” so the back-up stays up to date and encrypts the user data for protection from both malicious intrusion and catastrophic device failure.
