    Apparently the last 4.8.0 update broke support for non-Intel CPUs, for good, according to patters:

    Regretfully yes, Intel only now – Code42’s action not mine.

     

    Yes, unfortunately CrashPlan no longer works on non-Intel CPUs due to a requirement for a proprietary native library with version 4.8.0. Since I don’t have source code for that, I can’t compile it for the non-Intel CPUs 🙁
    Old packages still available here:

    Unfortunately no way to block. At some point (if not already) Code42 will migrate your backup archive on their servers forcing you to version 4.8.0.

    I’ve been using Intel NAS’s ever since I first tried CrashPlan on a 256Mb QNap (a looong time ago) and that’s proved to be a good decision.

    Wow! Nasty move on part of CrashPlan.

    I’m glad I spent the few extra bucks on the “+” version of Synology with Intel CPU.

    gotcha, thanks! thankfully my subscription is running out in April next year, I guess it is time to move on and use amazon along with another backup client. Loved crashplan while it lasted! Will reinstall the old version, block the update process and then just wait until I have time to research a good alternative. thanks again!

    Wow this really sucks. I wondered why crash plan stopped and wouldn’t start and started digging into what was going on. Perhaps I should look at another back up solution.

    Perhaps I should look at another back up solution.

    That’s the eternal question, but there aren’t many comparable products out there, at least for large data sets…
