We’re sorry.
At this time, the Carbonite Switcher offer is valid in the US only.


:(

Time for a proxy, eh?



I think he was talking about the crashplan offer.

Also its always free wth crashplan to backup to a friend, so let a friend backup to you and in exchange back up to them.

Indeed...

BTW it seems that you can still get 1 year free of CrashPlan. See here.

So what's your point?

Which online backup should I use?
« Reply #92 on: January 01, 2013, 10:27:26 PM »
Asides from Carbonite, are there any other companies to consider that anyone here uses (if you can also explain why that over Carbonite that would be great)?

Thank you

Personally I like backblaze, its unlimited and as long as my files are backed up I dont care how long it takes to recover them.

Another option to look into is amazon glacier they have some decent pricing.
It is all from Hashem and he will continue to give!

Is crashplan.com a reputable company?

Don’t see any ratings or Certificate Verifications for them like BBB, Cybertrust, TRUSTe or McAfee SECURE™ trustmark etc.

I've been using it successfully for years. The software is reliable, the backups are both encrypted and compressed, and I love the ability to backup to a friend. This way you can trade say 100GB with a friend, and keep a copy of your most important things on both their computer (fully encrypted of course) and yours.

I don't use their cloud service, or any of hte other services they offer for that matter, simply backup all important things to 2 different friends, and let them both backup to me in trade, and that way everybody has an extra copy of their data.

Its a great solution. Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions about setting it up or anything, I'd be more than happy to help.

+1 on crashplan.  i've been using them for a few years - many clients are running it as well.  I have 2.5TB or so backed up and regularly pull files back down and it's been great.  well worth the $$$ for the cloud-based service.

Sorry for reviving this old thread, but I need some good advice.
I have had enough of WD dumbware, as every successive version gets dumber and dumber.

I would like to hear your opinions for a free or inexpensive alternate instead.
I am looking for software that supports both automatic and manual backup.
Software should basically be able to copy everything from my computer's internal (secondary) hard drive to portable external hard drive.

Why not consider a cloud backup. If you don't need more than 5GB, Icloud for Windows is free and works great. I actually pay for it (half price for schools) and I've already used it to recover files.
