Backup sets allowing user full control over what data gets backed up; when it does and where it goes. The interface is pretty decent with everything broken up into tabs with everything organized as you would expect. Backups are stored in 4GB chunks of file that is not readable by anything other than Crash Plan.
Overall I am very impressed with Crash Plan, so much that I may upgrade to the family plan so each computer can backup on its own. Even so, its an excellent program and the first that I have seen that satisfies all the requirements of a good backup system.

Data Foundry, DYONYX, and AboveNet recently teamed up to host an executive luncheon at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse in Houston, Texas. Immediately following Mark’s presentation, Data Foundry President Shane Menking, DYONYX VP of Operations Bill Douglas, and AboveNet VP of Marketing Mike Tighe took to the stage to shed light on topics like, creating and testing your disaster recovery plan, accounting for the human element, network reliability, and data security. The panelists also explained how Austin, Texas provides Houston-based businesses a unique safe haven from the effects of hurricanes in the Gulf, focusing on the region’s low risk of natural disasters, well-planned transportation infrastructure, and access to dense fiber. In order to keep your data safe its essential to have the irreplaceable bytes stored in more than one place – otherwise whatever destroys the original data would also destroy the backup.
Any person running Crash Plan on their computer is given a randomly generated key which other crash plan users can use to connect to that persons crash plan client. For example the crash plan client on my computer has a backup set that sends files from my C drive to my Data drive.


This is excellent since I can leave it running in the background and never worry about it; whereas other backup programs I have to manually start since they eat too many resources to leave running all the time.
You can control practically any aspect of the backup or how the software runs – from how much CPU it can take up while the user is active to the frequency of backups and how many versions you want backed up (with options for yearly, months, weeks). The disadvantage would be the time Crash Plan would be allowed to run on each persons machine.
Its convenient to have local and online backup in a single program and I think that’s the biggest pull. I used Mozy for awhile (and for the most part was very happy with it) but I was forced to switch when Mozy went to their new payment tiers.
A packed room of local professionals heard the President of ImpactWeather, Mark Chambers, speak about the upcoming hurricane season. Storing backups on Crash Plans servers adds a layer of security since the data is safe from fire and water damage; theft and anything that would normally be an issue if the data was only on one physical hard drive. I like that the clients themselves create the network needed for this type of backup – its almost like a VPN between computers like Hamachi.
When I first started trying to setup Crash Plan I found it to be more complicated and confusing than I had anticipated; but now that I have been using it for awhile I find myself liking it a bit more.
On one hand I can see an advantage to this; since backups are more secure than storing them in plain files readable by any system you plug it into.
Without throttling no one would want to run backups while they were using the computer and thus, backups would never happen. With 2 to 3 major hurricanes predicted for 2012, Chambers highlighted the importance of having a proven disaster recovery plan in place.


This way its possible to backup data from one computer to another regardless of whether or not they are the same network or even if they run the same operating system; since Crash Plan runs on Windows, OS X and Linux.
Another backup set utilized social backup to send my entire data drive over to the crash plan client on my mac mini; which saves everything on an external hard drive. I guess its just something that takes getting used to, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Its difficult to pack all the settings Crash Plans offer into something super simple, so I can understand why its more complicated.
I like being able to open up my external hard drive and browse through my files and having the weird numerically named folders and files is a bit alien. So its transferring chunks of data to my D drive and then adding those to other chunks of data that gets stored on the mac minis external drive.
This seems to be especially weird when a crash plan backup is backed up via crash plan again.
I suppose most users wouldn’t appreciate that level of control and would prefer to have something easier.
If I setup a backup scheme to transfer files from one drive to another, and those files are then backed up via another scheme from the second drive to a third – are the files randomly named twice? It’d be nice if there was an option to have a certain backup set transfer the readable versions of files as opposed to the file chunks.
