System-Wide Organization Reference

Applies to:
  • CrashPlan PROe

Overview

The Settings > Organizations options specify the default organization settings (storage quotas, destinations, reporting, and security) for any new organizations you create. These top-level settings also affect settings for organizations that are configured to inherit the top-level settings.

Disabling inheritance
If inheritance is disabled for an organization, that organization is not affected by changes to its parent organization.

Quotas

Adjust organization quotas from Settings > Organization > Quotas.

A value of 0 MB disables web restores for organization managers.

Select Unlimited to set no web restore limit.

* Note: Default web restore limit is set to 250 MB. While this limit can be adjusted to suit specific production deployments, please note that zip files have inherent size limitations. Our Customer Champions have observed that file selections larger than 1 GB have a higher likelihood of failing. Web restores are primarily intended to provide quick, small downloads for emergency situations, or when other restore methods are not available. Large restores should either be done through the CrashPlan app or using the push restore feature.
