To protect all of your small business's data, it's important to back up all of your devices. This article shows CrashPlan PRO administrators how to install CrashPlan PRO on all the Windows, Mac, and Linux devices in your small business.

Before you begin

Step 1: Download the CrashPlan app installer

Placing an installer on each device
Most CrashPlan PRO administrators prepare to install the CrashPlan app using one of these methods:
  • Download the CrashPlan app installer once, then copy the installer to multiple devices.
  • On each device, download the CrashPlan app installer from the CrashPlan PRO administration console.
  1. Sign in to your CrashPlan PRO administration console with your CrashPlan PRO username and password.
  2. Go to App Downloads.
    App downloads in CrashPlan PRO
  3. Click the appropriate Download icon  for your device's operating system.
    For most modern Windows devices, we recommend using the Windows (64-bit) installer.

Step 2: Install CrashPlan PRO

We recommend that each user install and sign in to the CrashPlan app using their own username and password.

  1. Run the CrashPlan app installer on the device where you want to install CrashPlan PRO.
    • Windows: Double-click the MSI file.
    • Mac: Mount the DMG and double-click the PKG file.
    • Linux: Unpack the .tgz archive and run the included Bash script: sudo ./
  2. After the installation is complete, sign in to the CrashPlan app using your CrashPlan PRO username and password.
    If you don't have a username and password, your CrashPlan PRO administrator can create them.
  3. In the CrashPlan app, click Start Backup.
