This article explains the benefits of the Unlimited Data Plan for CrashPlan for Small Business (previously CrashPlan PRO).

Subscription features

Truly Unlimited
CrashPlan for Small Business does not limit the size of your backup and there are no overage charges. Furthermore, with a subscription to the Code42 cloud, we don't care if you're backing up 5 GB or 5 TB, and we don't place limits on individual file sizes. Plus, we'll never charge you extra to restore your files.

Multiple Destination Protection
We believe backing up to multiple destinations is the best way to secure your files against catastrophe. Your subscription gives you an unlimited backup to the Code42 cloud, and you can also back up to your own external drives for no additional cost.

Security to Meet Your Needs
Code42, maker of CrashPlan for Small Business, regards data security as the most important component of our backup services. That's why your backup files are protected using 448-bit encryption before any data is sent to your backup destinations. Once your files are encrypted, they are transmitted to your backup destinations over a communication channel secured by 128-bit AES encryption.

Online administration console
The CrashPlan for Small Business administration console allows you to remotely view real-time status of computer backups, storage, and restore activity. You can modify user settings and monitor users backups, which allows you to effectively manage backups for your business.

Web Restore
With the CrashPlan for Small Business administration console, you can restore files from any computer with your Internet browser. This is a convenient way to access your files in pinch!

Silent and Continuous
Backing up your files shouldn't get in the way of what you're doing. That's why CrashPlan for Small Business is designed to use minimal CPU power and allows you to configure a backup schedule that fits your work day. Without any additional configuration, most people won't even notice CrashPlan for Small Business is running.

Generous File Retention and Versions
CrashPlan for Small Business's default setting is to never remove deleted files from your backup set. Additionally, file versions can be backed up continuously, or daily. If a file becomes corrupt, or you want to return to an earlier version, you can restore from a date and time you specify.

Unlimited data subscription

With the unlimited data subscription, you pay for the number of computers signed in to CrashPlan for Small Business. At the beginning of each monthly billing cycle, your card is automatically charged for each active device in your organization.

An active device is any computer that shows up in the CrashPlan for Small Business administration console, whether or not it has backed up any data. If you no longer want to be charged for a device, deactivate it in the CrashPlan for Small Business administration console. Doing so will also remove any existing backup data for that device.

Your account auto-renews each month until you cancel. Payments cannot be made in advance, either monthly or yearly, because the cost is based on the number of active computers each month.


  • Purchasing a subscription does not automatically create an account for you. It ties the subscription to your email address, but you still need to create a CrashPlan for Small Business account.
  • CrashPlan for Small Business subscriptions can only be applied to a single CrashPlan for Small Business organization. All users and devices created under that organization are automatically allowed to back up to CrashPlan PRO Online. Once a key is activated for an organization, it cannot be moved to another organization.
  • If we determine that your use of CrashPlan for Small Business is adversely affecting other customers or consuming excess bandwidth or storage, we may suspend your access. We will work with you to modify your use of the product to avoid these adverse effects or excess consumption.
