Workstation Backup is built on Code42 (CrashPlan) software. It is available for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux machines.
Workstation Backup is designed to protect critical data on university laptop and desktop computers. This solution backs up data files on these devices at regular intervals—whether the computer is physically located on campus or off campus. To ensure the security of your data, backups are encrypted.
Workstation Backup allows you to backup files to a network storage as well as local hard drives.
In addition to backing up your files, Workstation Backup is designed to allow you the convenience of restoring your own files without assistance. Restores may be accomplished either from the installed client software or through crashplan.byu.edu
Note: This is a backup solution, not an archive solution. Archives are the primary copy of historical data, usually retained for the long term, while Backups are a secondary copy of current data, kept on hand in the event of a loss of the primary data. The primary copy of data for the workstation should always remain on the workstation
Licenses have already been made available for all full-time employees’ and CSR’s computers.
A monthly-recurring charge of $1.30 will be billed for each backed up computer.
If you no longer wish to use Workstation Backup, please contact your CSR.
Workstation Backup service, CrashPlanPROe, is intended for university data only.
If you have a personally owned computer that you would like to have backed up, you may use Code42’s home version called CrashPlan.
