CrashPlan offers a full-featured free 30-day trial so that you can try out all of CrashPlan for Home's features before purchasing a subscription. You can continue using CrashPlan without a subscription after the trial ends if you only wish to back up locally and/or to your friends' computers. If you purchase a subscription, you can continue backing up to CrashPlan Central and using our premium features.
Common questions and answers about the 30-day trial are addressed below.
Your 30-day trial begins when you register CrashPlan on your computer.
To continue using subscription-only features after your trial, you must purchase a subscription from our store.
Subscriptions take effect immediately upon purchase, ending the free trial if it is in progress. To get the most out of the trial, consider purchasing near the end of your 30-day trial.
If you don't sign up for a subscription, your trial reverts to a free version of the license. All of the subscription-only features, including backup sets, are no longer available. You are only able to remove backup sets. If you decide to restart your subscription, you can manage and modify any backup sets you have not removed.
Your subscription must be purchased under the same email address you used to create your CrashPlan account.
If you purchased a subscription with a different email address, perform a complete uninstall and reinstall the CrashPlan app using the email address used to purchase your subscription.
