This release offers new features and addresses issues from the previous release. We've also made a few changes that improve CrashPlan's performance.
New Features / Enhancements
- Automatically pause backups when you're running low on battery. This option allows you to conserve battery power when you're running low by not backing up. Backup resumes when battery power returns to a level you specify or when you are plugged back in. Learn more
- Permission option when restoring files for another user. When you're restoring files, you have the option to restore file with the original user's file permissions or with the permissions belonging to the person who is restoring. Learn more
