Only CrashPlan offers local and online backup that's automatic, secure, and cross-platform. Even if you need to back up as many as 10 computers at home, CrashPlan delivers multi-destination protection that maximizes convenience, flexibility, and rapid restores. 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.
Per-User Installation on Windows and OS X
- The CrashPlan app can now be installed separately for each user account on Windows and OS X computers. When you install the CrashPlan app per user, each installation behaves as a separate device with its own settings, license, and backup archive. This is only recommended for advanced users. Before installing the CrashPlan app per user, review these important considerations.
