Stepped-up Security
The app subscribers can surround their digital life with 448-bit encryption, including a private key option. This rare combination of security measures creates a virtually impenetrable “force field” around your data. What’s more, it taken extra steps to ensure data centers comply with military-grade security standards and conform to industry best practices for power redundancy, cooling and fire protection.

Your Files, Mobilized

Silent and Continuous
The program is your silent computer backup partner, protecting your precious files and folders in real-time. Designed to use minimal CPU power, you won't even know it's running. If your backup is interrupted, or you put your computer to sleep, the software automatically resumes when your computer becomes available again. And when you subscribe to the app Central, you can set your online backups to run as frequently as every minute.

External Drive Backup
Have more files to back up than a single hard drive can hold? Most of us do. No problem. The computer backup has all your external hard drives covered. You can even remove and later reattach external hard drives without restarting the backup—no matter how long they’ve been disconnected. The app keep your files safe and secure until you say otherwise. No limits. No hassles. No kidding.

Generous Retention and Versioning
In real life, there’s no living in the past. But you call the shots when it comes to your digital life. With the tool, it’s easy to go back in time to a precise version of a file or folder. What’s more, there’s no limit to how many versions you can back up to the app Central.

A subscription to the app Central cloud is an easy and affordable way to prevent your digital legacy from becoming history. And simple online application, including email alerts, lets you keep an eye on everyone’s backup status—from grandma to high school graduate.

Deleted File Protection
The app Central cloud is a regret-free zone. Keep your deleted files forever (unless you tell us not to), so no matter how much time passes after you trash a file, you can dig it out. And while this means a larger investment of resources on part, if it helps reduce anxiety over accidentally trashing your data, it’s well worth it.

Seeded Backup
Have lots and lots of data (over 300 GB) to backup? If you're in a hurry to back those files up, seeded backup service is for you. The app ship you a seed drive with instructions for backing up your files locally. Simply return the fully-loaded seed drive and jump start your backup for you.

Restore-to-Door Priority Recovery
The quickest way to recover your files (and emotional footing) after an epic data loss. With this optional service you will receive a hard drive loaded with your data, so you can restore files locally in just a few hours.

Smart Backup
The file you're working on right now is the one most in need of backup, so CrashPlan backs up your most recent files first, then makes sure you have a full backup at one destination as soon as possible. Even while you're working, Crash Plan is silently crunching numbers in the background, de-duplicating data between all your files to keep your backups as small and efficient as possible.

Note: 30 days trial version.
