I've got the free version of CrashPlan and I am backing up my computers to each other. My web hosting provider allows me to use 50GB online storage for backup, and I'd like to integrate that with CrashPlan but I don't see an option to do so.

Did I just miss the setting, or does CrashPlan really not offer to put backups in an FTP location?


As per their FAQ, this is not supported:

Can I back up using FTP?

No. At this time, CrashPlan must be installed and running on the destination. We may support FTP at some point, but it would be far slower and less of a guaranteed store than running CrashPlan. With CrashPlan running at both ends, the destination software simulates restores and validates files when the destination is idle and not in use. This is a big deal - something you cannot do with FTP efficiently - and ensures that your files are in good shape when you need them

  • Thank you! Obviously I should have looked in the FAQ before posting here -- my bad. – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Aug 11 '10 at 5:45
