Code42 Software has released CrashPlan 3.6.4 with support for OS X 10.10 Yosemite, plus unspecified security updates. The Internet backup software now excludes Time Machine backup files from backups to the Code42 public cloud and from default file selection. The update also logs backups and restores that take place even when CrashPlan is paused and corrects a case sensitivity issue for systems formatted with the Mac OS Extended (Journaled, Case-Sensitive) file system. There’s no need to download CrashPlan 3.6.4 manually, as the app should upgrade itself automatically in the coming days if it hasn’t already — the version number is displayed prominently in the app’s splash screen and Settings > Account screen. (Free with a 30-day trial of CrashPlan’s online backup service, 51.3 MB, release notes, 10.5+)
