Featured article: CrashPlan: Free Backups for Faculty and Staff



CIT is now providing an enterprise-level, centralized, and automated digital data backup service called CrashPlan for Enterprise to all faculty and staff members free of charge. CrashPlan:

  • supports Windows and Macintosh;
  • allows for data restoration from any computer with a network connection and internet browser;
  • and will back up your computer every 15 minutes, even when you're away from campus anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection.

We believe it's important you to install CrashPlan so that even if the worst happens to your hardware, your data will remain protected.

Some staff and faculty members may already have CrashPlan installed. Mac users should check their Applications folder and Windows users should look in Programs to determine whether their computer is already running the software.

If your computer does not already have it, please download and install CrashPlan from the CIT Software Downloads page. The setup takes just a few minutes, so make it a priority before the semester begins.

Complete installation instructions and use guides can be found on the CrashPlan page.

If you need assistance installing or using CrashPlan, please contact the CIT Help Desk at or x58197.
