Q. How do I restore my CrashPlan backup files over the Web?
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:
- Type https://www.crashplan.com/console 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.
- On the CrashPlan home page click Devices and find the backup you need in either Active or Deactivated.
- For the device you wish to restore backup files from click the Restore icon.
- Select the files or folders (and which versions) you wish to restore via the checkboxes and click Restore.
- Your selections will appear on the Left as downloadable options. Be sure to press Download to obtain your files.
