  • _Archived Items
  • _Deleted Items
  • All Cache folders, and files ending with ".cache"
  • Temporary files (directories and files labeled "tmp" or "Temp")


You can verify that a file is set to be backed up by doing the following: 

  1. Open the CrashPlan application (/Applications/CrashPlan)

  2. Select the Backup tab.
  3. Click the "Change" button.

  4. Any files and directories with check boxes next to them are being backed up by CrashPlan.

  5. Note that by default, though checked files are backed up, the checkmark does not necessarily indicate that the entire contents of a folder are backed up.


  1. Open the CrashPlan application (/Applications/CrashPlan)

  2. Select the Restore tab.

  3. This is the listing of backed up files.
