This tutorial explains how to back up to a friend's computer. Backing up to a friend gives you the advantage of off-site protection, and it's free!
Your friend has invited you to back up with CrashPlan. It's free to back up to each other using your own computers. Follow the steps in the Accept a CrashPlan Invite tutorial to get started backing up.
Your friend receives an email message that explains what CrashPlan is and how to back up to each other. The message also includes a backup code so your friend can back up to the computer you chose to offer in step 6.
For full details and instructions for your friend, see our Accept a CrashPlan Invite tutorial.
After your friend has accepted your invitation and registered using the email address you provided, you friend's computer will appear in the list of backup destinations.
On the Backup tab, you can check on the status of your backup, stop a backup in progress, or resume a paused backup.
Your friend can also go directly to the CrashPlan app or be invited through My Account.
If you want to back up to someone who is already using CrashPlan, ask your friend to tell you the Backup Code that appears on the Friends page, then follow these steps.
Don't want to use friends as a backup destination? Hundreds of thousands of CrashPlan users back up to CrashPlan Central, our secure cloud storage system. When you’re backed up to CrashPlan Central, your backups are offsite, away from any mishaps that could befall your computer. Online backup to CrashPlan Central is included for subscribers of CrashPlan for Home. Learn more about CrashPlan subscription options.
