Back up volumes in Linux

Applies to:
  • CrashPlan for Small Business (Mac only)
  • CrashPlan PROe


Mounted drives in the /Volumes folder on Linux systems must be manually added to your backup file selection from the CrashPlan web app. This tutorial describes how to add drives from the /Volumes folder.


  • When adding file paths to your backup selection, all characters are case sensitive.
  • Any additional changes to your backup file selection for the drives within the /Volumes folder must be made from the CrashPlan web app (CrashPlan for Home) or from the administration console (CrashPlan for Small Business (previously CrashPlan PRO) and Code42 for Enterprise). Once added to your backup file selection, you are unable to modify your selection from the CrashPlan app.
