You can use Zapproved's CloudPreserve to preserve data in Code42. This article explains how to configure your Code42 environment to enable this integration. Once you connect the two applications, your legal team will be able to:
- Preserve data on a custodian's computer using Code42's continuous backup
- Create a complete audit trail of all preservation and collection activities
- The Code42 SYSADMIN role is required to perform these steps.
- This integration requires Code42 server version 6.0.x or later and a private authority server.
- A Legal Hold Pro and CloudPreserve license is required. Contact Zapproved for more information about purchasing licenses.
Our Customer Champions can help with issues caused by Code42. However, we cannot provide technical support for Zapproved's Legal Hold Pro. Contact Zapproved for help with Legal Hold Pro.

Step 2: Configure CloudPreserve in Zapproved
Sign in to Zapproved's Legal Hold Pro dashboard to configure CloudPreserve with Code42. For more information on how to use CloudPreserve to preserve data in Code42, see Zapproved's Legal Hold Pro documentation (you must be signed in to view the documentation).
Once you have connected the two apps, Legal Hold Pro and Code42 automatically:
- Create a default preservation policy in the Code42 Legal Hold web app
- Create Code42 matters to correspond with each Code42 preservation created in Legal Hold Pro
- Apply the default preservation policy to each matter
(Optional) Edit the preservation policy in Code42
By default, the automatically-created preservation policy places all of the files on a custodian's computer into legal hold and preserves all deleted files. You can edit this preservation policy to add file type exclusions, or change how frequently file changes are backed up.
