Backing Up University-Owned Computers

To help faculty and staff avoid an unfortunate loss of data and information from their university-owned computers, IRT offers the CrashPlan ProE backup service. CrashPlan operates transparently; you can schedule the backup and continue to work as it runs. Self-serve file recovery brings users back to productivity quickly and independent of any IT assistance.

Cost for the plan, which provides unlimited storage for up to four computers per user is $7.00 per month. A Drexel account number is required.

To order the CrashPlan backup service for a university-owned computer, send a request by email to and specify the user-id of the person whose computer will be backed up and that user's campus telephone extension. IRT will send a quote to the department to authorize the monthly recurring service fee (which will appear as a monthly charge to the department's specified account).
