Enterprise Client Backup

Powered by CrashPlan from Code42

CrashPlan is a software application installed on an employee's primary University-owned computer that performs a complete backup of user profile or home directory. After the initial backup is concluded, the application will back up any changes automatically in the background. If one ever needed to recover data, they can use the backup client to find and download the file or directory.

Get Started

The software package is currently available on the Ivanti software portal on University-owned Faculty and Staff primary computers. Individuals can install the client at their convenience by launching Ivanti's Portal Manager and clicking the Install button next to the CrashPlan icon.

In addition, with any new computer installation, CrashPlan is installed, and your files are restored from your previous SMU computer to the new one automatically during the setup process.
