CrashPlan is a backup program that backs up data to remote servers, other computers, or hard drives. Backing up to the cloud servers requires a monthly subscription.

Installation

Install crashplanAUR from the AUR. There is also crashplan-proAUR and crashplan-pro-eAUR available which are the paid enterprise packages.

Basic Usage

CrashPlan can be entirely configured through its graphical user interface. You can access it by:

$ CrashPlanDesktop

Once configured you can control the CrashPlan service as follows:

# systemctl {enable,disable,restart,stop} crashplan.service

Troubleshooting

Ignoring invalid environment 'export LC_ALL=en_US.utf8'

Should your journal logs show this locale error, add the following line to your ~/.bash_profile:

export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8

Waiting for connection

On some systems it can happen that CrashPlan does not wait until an internet connection is established. If using NetworkManager, you can install networkmanager-dispatcher-crashplan-systemdAUR which will automatically restart the CrashPlan service once a connection is successfully established.
