I back up everything to an external drive as well as to Crashplan. I lost a
drive very suddenly a few months ago and was VERY glad I had backed up - I
got everything back through Crashplan.

Crashplan is changing its focus from individuals to businesses, so I'm not
sure what the fees will be in the future. I intend to stay with the
business option if possible.
