CrashPlan is our favorite cloud-based backup solution and having an off-site backup is a critical cornerstone in your overall backup strategy. Tomorrow, CrashPlan is having a huge Black Friday sale for both Individual and Family Unlimited subscriptions. Here’s how it works.
Head to the CrashPlan plan deal page when the sale starts Friday at 6 am CST and the discount will be 100%…yes, you read that correctly 100%! The Unlimited plan is free for an entire year. Then every two hours after that, the discount will gradually decrease until it reaches 42% at 2 pm CST on Monday, November 26th. So the earlier you purchase your subscription, the more you save – so you’ll want to grab it early on Friday.
Even if you miss the 100% discount window or longer discount times – the service is still essentially half off through the entire weekend.
The feature I like is it will back up external drives as well as your main internal one. With other services, that isn’t an option, and you have to resort to a funky workaround. The Unlimited CrashPlan subscription provides easy to use and secure backups. Here’s a look at some of the features:
- Unlimited Online Storage
- Real-Time Data Backup, Multiple Backup Sets, Onsite and Offsite Data Backup, Incremental and Differential Backups.
- Web Restore Data Recovery
- Guaranteed Restore
- 448-bit File Encryption
- An Ad Free User Interface and A lot More…
The regular price for an Individual Unlimited plan is $60 and $144 for Family Unlimited. So the savings are huge for this must have service. Having an off-site cloud-based backup service is a vital piece to your overall data backup strategy. Oh, did I mention it’s cross-platform? It works on Windows, Mac and Linux – even Solaris.
Backing up data is the most important thing you can do as a computer owner. Really… It’s not an option. Unfortunately, it’s commonly forgotten as most assume they will never lose a drive to theft, malfunction of fire. That is until it’s too late. From our experience here at groovyPost, CrashPlan is the easiest and most feature-rich online backup service we’ve ever used for both home and business. In fact, I used it recently when I switched my production computer to Windows 8, and it made my migration super easy.
This is a perfect opportunity to get a “set it and forget it” backup solution for your computer for on the cheap!
