=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ I have been using it for a while now. I have several terabytes backed up to their cloud. Love them. I highly recommend the service. They support Linux, Mac, and of course Windows.

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Yup, works awesome.

=============================================================== From: Rod ------------------------------------------------------ yeah but it uses java. Those recent java exploits have worried. On Wed, 12 Mar 2014 13:06:30 -0400, Stephen Kraus wrote:

=============================================================== From: William Roush ------------------------------------------------------ How many of those exploits target more than applets and specifically the weak Java sandbox around it? Crashplan also comes with it's own JRE so your OS wont be loading it up for anything but Crashplan with the JRE William Roush william.roush@roushtech.net 423-463-0592 http://www.roushtech.net/blog/

I'm still thinking of an own cloud install as well. But I'd prefer a hosted solution.

=============================================================== From: Andrew Krohne ------------------------------------------------------ I've used them for quite some time, and have ~8 TB backed up to them. The service is pretty good, but the client is fairly cumbersome, in my opinion. Also, download speeds are glacially slow (I'm doing well to get 10 Mbps when restoring files).
