You should back up your hard drive. You’ve heard it a million times, but most people don’t do it. So we’re going to make it easy: CrashPlan is the best backup tool. It’s what you should use to back up your data, both on-site and off-site.
• Automatic, set-it-and-forget-it backup. You set your backup schedule (nightly, weekly, by-the-minute) and CrashPlan takes care of the rest—you don’t have to remember to back up once you’ve set it up.
• Back up locally. You can back up to any computer on your network, or any connected external drive. Assuming your house didn’t burn down, the local backup is the one you’ll go to first. (Just keep in mind that the off-site backup needs to be there in the event of a more catastrophic loss, like fire or theft.
• Unlimited file size.
• Incremental backup means CrashPlan only backs up the bits of data that have changed in a file—which means it doesn’t have to back up the entire file every time something changes. This makes a big difference when you’ve got limited upload bandwidth.
• CrashPlan keeps your files forever. Even if you delete a file locally, if it’s been backed up to CrashPlan, you can restore it at any time unless you’d prefer they don’t.You can restore a file at any time from the CrashPlan client or via their web app.
