Most CrashPlan for Small Business 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 for Small Business administration console.

  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 for Small Business

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 for Small Business.
    • 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 install.sh Bash script: sudo ./install.sh
  2. After the installation is complete, sign in to the CrashPlan app using your CrashPlan for Small Business username and password.
    If you don't have a username and password, your CrashPlan for Small Business administrator can create them.
  3. In the CrashPlan app, click Start Backup.
