You can restore files from your CrashPlan  backup through a browser to your laptop or onto any computer you choose. However you can only restore 500MB at a time. To restore larger files you will need to restore with the CrashPlan  application.

To access your CrashPlan  via the Web:

  1. Type in a browser window. Enter your Scotch or PLC Email Address and click 'Sign In'. This will take you to a PLC/Scotch Single Sign-On page, where you will need to enter your User ID (student number) and your password and sign in. 

  2. On the CrashPlan  home page click Devices and find the backup you need in either Active or Deactivated. 

  3. For the device you wish to restore backup files from click the Restore  icon.
  4. Select the files or folders (and which versions) you wish to restore via the checkboxes and click Restore.
  5. Your selections will appear on the Left as downloadable options. Be sure to press Download to obtain your files.
