Today I uninstalled CrashPlan on my macOS laptop since on August 22 2017 they announced they were exiting the home user market. I think the party is close to being over as even Amazon CloudDrive is now limited to 1TB of storage.
I wanted to ensure I removed any traces of CrashPlan. I use the
locate command a lot. Ever wondered how to run the equivalent of
updatedb on macOS? Its
locate.updatedb (comes with a
man page too). Run
sudo /usr/libexec/locate.updatedb and that updates the
Pleased to say CrashPlan went away quite cleanly.
