CrashPlan automatically detects personal files and moves them to the “My Documents” folder, though it’s important to review and select photos separately for backup.
File versions in selected folders get checked every 15 minutes and blackout times can also be specified, based on your requirements and internet usage limitations.
Another important feature we all look for while uploading personal pictures to the cloud is security.
CrashPlan encrypts data on its servers using the 448-Blowfish algorithm.
While the account’s password gets used as an encryption key, users can also specify a custom key, which even CrashPlan can’t access.
Unfortunately, CrashPlan does not have sharing and syncing options.
While the desktop software is full of features, the web and mobile apps are missing just a few.
In fact, the mobile app does not have an automatic photo backup option–which sucks.
But CrashPlan still is an excellent photo backup service on PC, which is fully automated, extremely reliable and secure.
