Restoring Files From Crashplan


I accidentally deleted something. How can I recover files in the Code42 app? (formerly Crashplan app)

If you do not see this icon, or are unsure whether or not your computer is equipped with the Code42 App, please visit the Desktop and Devices service page to request help.
