  • You can only restore a limited total size of files and folders from the web. To restore more files and folders, we recommend restoring from the CrashPlan app instead.
    • CrashPlan for Small Business: Restores are limited to 250 MB per restore.
    • Code42 for Enterprise: Restores are limited to 250 MB by default, but your administrator can change this restriction.
  • Only files backed up to a cloud destination, such as CrashPlan PRO Online, can be restored from the web. If your file was backed up to another destination, such as a local folder, then restore from the CrashPlan app instead.
