Add a cloud destination

This article applies to all products.png


In the CrashPlan app, you can back up your files to either a destination that is local (for example, an external drive on your device), or to a destination in the CrashPlan cloud. Backing up to multiple destinations, both onsite and offsite, helps protect you from data loss. Perform the following steps to back up to a cloud destination.


This article assumes you have permission to manage your backup destinations. Your administrator may prevent destination management.


If you're setting up CrashPlan for the first time

  1. Download and install the CrashPlan app.
    After you sign in for the first time, you see the message: No Destinations Selected - Add a destination to start backup. Add destinations.
  2. Click Add destinations.
  3. Select an available destination.

If CrashPlan is already installed

  1. Open the CrashPlan app and go to the Home screen.
  2. Select bluecogSettings-export.png Settings.
  3. Select Backup Sets.
  4. Next to Destinations, click Change.
