    Hey everyone,

    I'll be at Evolution18 and one of the many things I'll be doing is talking about tips and tricks for administrators using Code42 products. While I have my favorites from when I was a support engineer, I'd love to highlight some tips or best practices that you'd like to pass along. I'll be giving credit where credit is due of course.

    You do not need to be going to Evolution18 to pose a question or provide a tip, and no tip is too big or too small! Please post your best ideas below.

    If you are interested in learning more about our conference please take a gander at I'm excited to get to have some great conversations with those of you who can make it out to San Francisco in April! There's still plenty of time to sign up and see my session (and maybe your tip) live.

    Heard a tip to start backing up the crashplan logs with user backups and it's a life saver for those that are having issues with their backups.  I pop into the web console and restore them for my viewing.  So much easier then asking for users to enter the cli command to get the logs and get them over to us!

    ​Hi Ed,

    So backing up the logs is working well for you?  Code42 doesn't recommend backing them up, that's why they are excluded by default.

    Getting the logs without involving the user, would be fantastic.
