Patters from pcloadletter.co.uk just released a new version of his awesome CrashPlan package. This version introduces a new requirement so be careful when updating!
If you haven’t read my previous post about installing CrashPlan, I highly recommend you to start with that. Follow all instructions, but do not start the CrashPlan client at the end.
In order to upgrade to CrashPlan 4.4.1 you first need to update the package from “Package Center” on your Synology or XPenology server. All the settings changed in the third step in my previous guide will survive the upgrade, but you’ll have to re-download the .ui_info file.
Once the file has been downloaded, edit it and change the last value after the comma to your IP-address so it looks like this: 4243,123456-1234-1234-1234-123456789,192.168.1.100. The first value is the port number, second is your unique id and the last should be the IP-address to your server.
You’ll also have to modify the file ui.properties located at C:\Program Files\CrashPlan\conf and update your serviceHost.
You should also disable the CrashPlan service on your computer if you intend only to use the client. In Windows, open the Services section in Computer Management and stop the CrashPlan Backup Service. In the service Properties set the Startup Type to Manual.
