Install Crashplan backup tool in Linux
CashPlan is an automated backup solution that either uses the CrashPlan Central server or any other machine or device of your choosing. CrashPlan runs quietly in the background, automatically protecting your files. CrashPlan is cross-platform: backup your new Mac to your old PC or your laptop to a friend’s desktop, whichever you want. You can manage how much space a friend gets, where their files are stored, and when to run backups. If you’re worried about using too much space on a friend’s computer, you can simply attach a USB drive. CrashPlan seamlessly extends its functionality online to provide you remote management of your backup.
The setup and user interface for CrashPlan are straight forward, you shouldn’t have any trouble getting things up and running. Most people won’t find that they need the additional perks that come with an upgrade to the premium service, which makes CrashPlan an appealingly free option for personal backup. CrashPlan is freeware and available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
