When you first start backing up, CrashPlan backs up everything in your home directory or user folder in a single, default backup set. With backup sets enabled, you can create additional backup sets so that different groups of files can back up to different locations and with different settings.
This tutorial includes important considerations as well as step-by-step instructions for creating backup sets. You can also copy, rename and remove backup sets.
Backup sets can back up to separate destinations or share a destination. Before creating multiple backup sets that back up to a single destination, please read these important considerations.
File exclusions specified for any backup set impact all sets backing up to the same destination. For example, suppose Set A and Set B back up to an external hard drive destination. Set A has an exclusion indicating that files ending in .mp3 shouldn't back up. Even though you haven't specified this exclusion for Set B, MP3s from this set will not back up to the external hard drive.
Only one set of version and deleted file retention settings can be applied to backup sets backing up to a single destination:
You need to enable the backup sets feature to start creating backup sets:
Once backup sets are enabled, follow the steps below to complete setup of your backup set.
Since backup sets allow you to use different backup settings for different groups of files, you may decide that you want to move some files you have already backed up into a new backup set with different settings.
For example, the default backup set includes all of your files and backs up to the Code42 cloud every 15 minutes. If you wanted to change the backup settings for a folder of large video files so they only back up every hour, follow these steps:
