With unlimited storage, a sleek interface and excellent security, CrashPlan is one of the best cloud backup services for PC — period. But the reason why it’s number one here, is because of its easy and affordable pricing.
Plans start at $5.99 per month, per user, for unlimited space. You can also get an annual plan at $149, which can be used by over ten users.
Here’s one thing we didn’t like about the service – there is a password strength indicator on the sign-up page which relates how good or bad a password is, but it will count any 6-word password as a good one.
For example, “Password: 123456” will get labeled as “strong” purely due to its length. Let’s move onto what the software does right, upon installation; it automatically selects the My Documents folder to upload.
However, since CrashPlan automatically chooses which folders to backup, and starts scanning for them instantly, you need to stop the process quickly, to be able to select individual files or folders.
