CrashPlan PRO Software Version Policy

Applies to:
  • CrashPlan PRO


In order to maintain the best service, Code42 supports specific versions of CrashPlan PRO software. As described in the Product Lifecycle Policy, this supported version policy is more restrictive than the general policy of supporting the two most current major software versions. This article names the specific versions of the CrashPlan app that are required for CrashPlan PRO, as well as the supported and unsupported operating systems for the currently-supported versions of the CrashPlan app.

For information about CrashPlan for Home, see the CrashPlan for Home Software Version Policy on our CrashPlan for Home support site.

Code42 public cloud endpoint version policy

  • Code42 requires that customers use the latest supported version of the CrashPlan app. Previous versions must be upgraded by the dates established in this policy. Identify your version of the CrashPlan app to ensure you are using an up-to-date version.
  • When a new version of the CrashPlan app is available, Code42 automatically upgrades all devices that meet the system requirements for the new version.
  • When a new version of the CrashPlan app no longer supports use on an operating system, Code42 announces an end-of-support date for the CrashPlan app on that operating system. Code42 strives to announce the end-of-support date 45 days in advance.
