Connecting to backup destination – Crashplan

If you’re using CrashPlan for your online backup, and got the following message “Connecting to backup destination” (I have received this message for the last week), the solution to start backing up again is the following:

  • Open Local Services
  • Find “Crashplan Backup Service”
  • Right Click > Stop
  • Wait till the Status is blank (not Running)
  • Right Click > Start

And voilà, CrashPlan will start backing up again.
