How do I restore files from CrashPlan at home?
Restoring files from home using CrashPlan is the same process as restoring files at school. However there are a couple of important things to consider when doing so:
- Restoring data requires a network connection. The software will use your personal network at home to access the school server in order to function.
- The Maximum file size that can be restored at home is 500Mb.
- For home use, CrashPlan will be running at the lowest possible upload rate per hour. However, your personal network bandwidth will be used.
- For use at school, the highest upload rate will be used.
Therefore, it is recommended that you reserve your largest restores/backups at school to utilise the fastest network speeds and save your personal network data/bandwidth.
In order to restore files from Home:
- Open up CrashPlan from your Applications Folder
- CrashPlan will open and will look similar to below. To Restore your data, open the Restore panel from the side.
- Check the box - 'Show deleted files' so any deleted/damaged files will show up in your folder structure.
- Now search through the folder structure to find the files you want to restore.
- To restore the Most Recent version of your file to the Desktop simply click Restore.
- If you would like to restore an older version of your file with different permissions, or to a different area of your computer, click Most Recent, Original Permissions and Desktop to cycle through the options.
