CrashPlan Pro Retore when the Server that was backed up is not available
Posted on 2013-01-26
One of my computers on the Network has died. However I have been backing it up using CrashPlan Pro. So I know all my data is there somewhere.
But now that the computer is no longer available, even if I go to my CrashPlanPro Server, go to the admin console, devices, select the computer name, and then on the action menu select restore.
When I do that, a web restore message pops up saying the machine is unavailable.
So basically my question is, how can you restore data from a machine that is no longer available but that was previously backed up by Crashplan Pro.
Note we did not use the cloud, only the server version.
