Recommended solutions

Code42 recommends using any of these solutions to resolve the problem.

Use a different browser

This issue is only known to affect Chrome. Open the administration console from another web browser to avoid the issue.

Use a different version of Google Chrome

Alternatively, you can use an earlier version of Chrome (prior to version 31.0.1650.57) to prevent the issue:

  1. Downgrade to an earlier version of Chrome:
    1. Uninstall Chrome
    2. Delete every user's saved profile data by removing the following directories:
      • Windows Vista / 7: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data
      • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data
      • Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default
      • Linux: ~/.config/google-chrome/Default
    3. Install an older version of Chrome
  2. Turn off auto-updates to prevent Chrome from upgrading again

Upgrade your Enterprise Server

This issue affects only enterprise servers running CrashPlan PROe versions 3.3.x through 3.5.3.x. You can avoid this issue by upgrading your enterprise servers to version 3.5.4 or later.

  1. Upgrade the enterprise server to version 3.5.4 or later
  2. Clear your cache files in Chrome
