Installing CrashPlan on WHS part 2

In my previous post “Installing CrashPlan on WHS” I looked at installing CrashPlan on my home server and making it use UNC paths. In this post I was originally intending to look at what was needed to perform a backup between two home servers using a backup seeded from a portable hard disk.

I did manage to get all of that set up and working and was about to post when my friend noticed a problem. For some reason his backup files got erased and CrashPlan started a full backup over the net, this was going to take nearly 2 months.

After restoring the backup from portable hard disk again and starting things off it did the same thing again. So for now we’ve decided to uninstall CrashPlan until we have time to look into what’s going on.
