I began investigating
CrashPlan, and they have discontinued the
"Crashplan for Home" and are only keeping "CrashPlan for Small
Business".. If one is interested in the smaller scale/cheaper
service, they recommend Carbonite.. with a link to their site.
(If you already have "CrashPlan for Home" they offer a good
discount for a year to Carbonite, with free transfer of data.)
I called Carbonite. Their simple plan, "One computer", has
three options. Click the Buy Now button to access the "Plus" and
the "Prime" options. -The Basic, for $72/yr, is unlimited backup
on one computer, and it's internal hard drive. Manual video
The Plus, $112/yr, has external hard drive backup as well, and
automatic video backup.
The Prime, $150yr, has all of the above and a Courier recovery
service, which means they will send a hard drive to you if you
need to restore a lot of files (plus $9.99)....
**NOTE, they do not, under any plan, let you mail in a hard
drive to be copied.
The CrashPlan for Small Business touts a $10/mo plan (with no
extra charges), cancel at any time. : so I did some further
reading. Their sales dept is closed on weekends, so I wrote on
their contact form my questions. I want to confirm that I
could sending them a hard drive to start the process. And to
find any "extra hidden charges".. AND also they say can back up
as many devices as needed - I'm asking for the extra charges and
to define that, does it include more than one external hard
