CrashPlan Backup Report Reference

Applies to:
  • CrashPlan for Home


CrashPlan emails you regular backup status reports to keep you informed about your backup status and activity. This guide reviews the content of this report and also explains how to configure the frequency of the report.

Note: Backup status reports provide a summary of the entire backup archive for each of your devices. The information is not summarized by backup set. If you are using backup sets and would like to review the status of a particular set, refer to the Backup tab of the CrashPlan app.

Backup status report

You can configure the frequency of your Backup Status Reports from Settings > General > Backup Status And Alerts.
