Reviews

Overall: Outstanding performance over the 3 year period that I used it. Once my data was uploaded (it took nearly a year), I was assured that my PhD research was safe. I stopped using it because the internet in China was simply too restricted and curtailed to make it useful.
Pros: It runs continuously in the background to ensure that the files selected are backed up. The Crashplan client automatically backs up to ensure that customers are using the very latest client and are not in danger of security leaks. The Crashplan client is cross-platform and will run on Linux and Mac
Cons: Code42 appears to have removed their plan for standard household users and now only has plans for small and large businesses. Unfortunate for the average household computer user. When I used Crashplan for backup in Beijing, China, the upload speeds were horrendously slow. I assume this was not the fault of Crashplan, but the result of serious Internet throttling by the internet provider or by state security apparatus in China where all connections to the outside world are severely curtailed. Backing up 200gb of data took nearly half a year. But my experience was likely unusual. Based on other user reports of Crashplan, the upload and download speeds are quite good.

Overall: I used Crashplan for several years and found it to be an excellent reliable product. I no longer used it because the home user option was withdrawn and the small business pricing was prohibitive for a home user. If the option is ever reinstated I would not hesitate in returning to use the product.
Pros: Flexibility, reliability, ease of use, configuration options. Unlimited storage, file modification history. Local backup and peer to peer options.
Cons: Withdrawal of home user option, which I understand given the economics of providing unlimited storage.

What do you like best?
Crashplan provides ease of setup. The price is right at $10/device backed up. The different backup options and granularity such as frequency and version changes, file exclusions, local backups, etc.

What do you dislike?
I really haven’t found anything I dislike about it yet. I haven’t had to do a full restore yet to gauge how fast or slow it might be.

Pros

Software had an amazing design. You could use an an existing old computer as a backup drive for your other computers on the network and share it with additional family members. this was new and different from competitors Also – the software subscription fees is quite affordable

Cons

With cloud services coming on and advent of networked machines, expecting that Crashplan would continue to offer more differentiating features
