Unlike ordinary online backup, CrashPlan lets you back up to other destinations in addition to online. You can back up to your other computers, external hard drives and to computers that belong to friends and family for free. If you want to back up online too, purchase a CrashPlan+ subscription.

CrashPlan auto-updates to the latest version. You do not need to download it again once it's installed. If your download hasn't started or you need to download CrashPlan for another operating system, please use the links to the left.

To install CrashPlan, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install crashplan

To upgrade CrashPlan, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
