What is CrashPlan for Mac

CrashPlan offers local and online backup that's automatic, secure, and cross-platform.

It's free to back up locally and to friends and family, and it's just a few dollars a month for unlimited online personal backup with a CrashPlan subscription.

CrashPlan runs on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Note: CrashPlan is available in both free and paid versions. Individual, Family, and Business subscriptions are available, and their pricing schedules can be found here.

I have used CrashPlan for many years. It has had a lot of annoying problems, but the latest notification that backing up my system files will soon no longer be allowed is the final straw. Fortunately there are several other good alternatives, including BackBlaze that I like a whole lot better. I have stopped my CrashPlan service.

'Beginning on August 31, 2018, CrashPlan for Small Business will no longer provide support for the CrashPlan application on either OS X Mavericks 10.9 or OS X Yosemite 10.10.' Goodbye. Closing all accounts. Bad indications of never uppdating homepage (regarding Home ver.) and dysfunctional user site (just try to get info on charges!). Will try out old good Retrospect on our CoLoc. (Also, its NOT Free).

Since the forced change from Home to Small Business plan and the new (unannounced) app interface revamp a few weeks back, the app and the service sucks. I have been stuck on cache maintenance for NINE days. I've had multiple chats with their tech support reps. Oh, NOW, I know what the problem is, and it's mine, of course. They never inform you about it up front: you're not supposed to back up your whole drive (i.e., root folder), you're only supposed to back up your user folder. I've used CrashPlan for years to back up whole drives, and this was never a problem until this latest upgrade. I think they're trying to kill off all the small user base and cater only to the Business level clients. I bet CrashPlan doesn't tell THEM what files they can and can't back up. Bottom line is my internal drive hasn't been backed up in 9 days. Backing up my hard drive and externals is why I use a backup service. Unfortunately for CrashPlan (as if) and fortunately for me, I'm looking into going back to something like Retrospect and a cold storage/cloud storage service, even though this will be spendier. I don't care, as CrashPlan doesn't meet my needs any more. I didn't change anything; THEY did. Caveat emptor! #endrant

Just tried Crashplan. It backs up at around 24 Mbps on my 200/200 Mbit/s connection, so pretty fast. While doing that it uses 12-13% CPU (Mac Pro 2009 @ 2,93Ghz Quad). To me that doesn't seem that bad at all. Also comes with a handy uninstaller... So I do not quite get all the negative reviews.

Poor software, buggy, slow, caused major disruption of my internet service, slowed computers down and wasted a lot of my time. Don't touch this!.

Upload is unbelievably slow. And I do NOT upload to the Crashplan servers but backing up to a friend. My upload speed is 40 Mbit but Crashplan hardly uploads with 1-3 MBit. Changing preferences seems to do nothing.

The latest 4.6.0 consistently use close to 1GB or over 1GB of memory on my computers. This is insane and unacceptable.
