CrashPlan will no longer be free for users who wish to use it for local backup. It was a great backup tool with continuous backup, automatic cleanup of older backups and simple to use interface.
“CrashPlan for Home will no longer be available for use starting October 23, 2018.”
I have also used CrashPlan for cloud backup, but found out that there is a better alternative – Livedrive. However, Livedrive is only for cloud backup and as such does not support backup to local hard drives.
Currently I am looking into following products:
Acronis True Image 2018 ✔ (looks ok)
Genie Backup Home ✔ (looks ok, mirror mode for backup)
Paragon Backup & Recovery 16 Free (does not have hourly or continuous backup)
EaseUS Todo Backup Free
Ashampoo Backup Pro 10
Got any more suggestions? 🙂
