So, since my original thread got merged into this one for some reason, I was wondering if anyone here wants to take me up on my offer to start a CrashPlan users backup club.
Send me a private message if you are serious about getting started with me. I'll host your data up to 1 TB if you'll host my data which is currently at almost 894 GB.
If you have less than 100 GB of data, then I will host it for free. You are not obligated to host all of my data at all. I realize doing so would be unfair to you so you should feel free to contact me in private if you are interested.
I'm really serious about this. I want to make friends here and I want another safe and secure destination to host my data off-site for free.
I have 8.34 TB of total storage capacity. Most of my drives are external storage devices that use Super Speed USB 3.0 technology. I can still add another external hard disk drive at any time to gain a couple extra gigabytes of high speed USB 3.0 storage capacity.
Your data is going to be highly secure and it will be safe using peer to peer backup.
CrashPlan sent me this link to help with peer to peer data backups:
Please make sure you read this official CrashPlan support article if you are having problems with peer to peer data backups using CrashPlan+.
Well, Crashplan isn't offline, but it is encrypted:The latter might be more secure, as the drive is offline and is encrypted but still..
Awesome, thanks. I'm thinking of going with a single computer plan cuz I already back all the other machines up to my home server and so far it's been working ok.I'm using the unlimited family plan.
Out of curiosity, has anyone restored their files with crashplan? I backed up my /home (over 200 GB) to an Amahi Home Server on my network. Then, I installed Lubuntu 12.10 and proceeded to restore the files. I got a kernel panic. This happened multiple times, so I installed Lubuntu 12.04 via the alternate CD (thinking it was a bad installation), and had the same problems.
I've even installed Fedora 18, and had the kernel panic when I tried to restore my files. java is what causes the panic (at least on Fedora).
Any suggestions on what to do to get things restored without the kernel panic's are greatly appreciated.
Have a great day
