Decide what to buy

Is there a free trial?

Yes. There is a 30-day free trial to Code42 CrashPlan. Your trial is a fully functional version of the software, and is exactly the same as the purchased software.

How is Code42 CrashPlan licensed?

Code42 CrashPlan is licensed by annual user license. Each active user consumes a user license.

Annual Licenses: You can choose from 1-year, 2-year and 3-year plans. These plans include Support and Maintenance for the duration of the license.

If you decide to host your data with us, you'll also need to pay storage fees.

Can I have a combination of annual and perpetual licenses on the same master server

Yes. If you purchased a perpetual license in 2012 or earlier, you can have both annual and perpetual licenses running within the same Code42 environment.

Is Code42 CrashPlan available outside of the US and Canada?

Yes. Code42 CrashPlan is available worldwide.

Is Code42 CrashPlan translated in other languages?

Yes. Please see our details on available languages for all Code42 products.

Is there a manual?

Comprehensive product documentation is available on our support site. You can also easily save PDFs of single articles or groups of articles to create your own customized collection of product documentation.

How do I buy?

Please visit our online store to purchase or to request a quote.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept payment via credit card.

Does each device count as a license?

Beginning with Code42 CrashPlan version 3.5, all licensing is user-based. A single user license covers up to 4 devices per user account

Australia and New Zealand customers

Are your cloud services based in Australia?

Yes. We have a data centre in Sydney.

What payment options do you offer?

You can choose to pay with Visa or Mastercard. For more information on purchasing, contact sales.

I have already purchased a plan through the US store. What price do I pay to renew?

If you have already purchased a plan through the U.S. store, we'll continue to honor renewals of that plan at the U.S. renewal prices.

Why the big price difference between Australia and US offerings?

Even though our operating costs in Australia are significantly higher than they are in the U.S., we are absorbing some of the increased cost to make us more in line with similar products.

Can I purchase subscriptions for multi-year plans?

No. Our longest subscription term in Australia and New Zealand is one year (for Code42 CrashPlan).
