Looks like they have released a version 5.0 which removes the ability to do LAN backups. Obviously support for 4.x will eventually be dropped (if it hasn't already), so I'm looking for a replacement.

Now that Crashplan no longer offers consumer services, should this be marked as discontinued?


While most apps here are consumer oriented, some are commercial oriented, and some people may be interested in their small business version. (I'm not, but some may be.) Maybe tweaking the description to make it clear that they are no longer offering a consumer version, or some tag that says "enterprise-only".

I wish CrashPlan would give me more control over it

This is the only serious online backup contender that lets you back up to your own storage (and your friend's storage!). It is also the only one that will back up all your files. Other software will skip files larger than 4GB without telling you.

I wish CrashPlan would provide more information about what it's doing, and give me more control over it as well. It also puts a list of your files in CrashPlan's program directory, so if you're backing up an encrypted TrueCrypt volume, your security will be cracked wide open. BAD.

So, it appears to me that all backup solutions on the market are fatally flawed in at least one way.


FYI, there are certain files that it does not backup. See for the full list.
