CrashPlan 7.2

Automatic backup to local drives, friends' drives, or the cloud.

CrashPlan is a powerful program that helps you back up your important files and folders and access them whenever it's necessary. This program provides you with a simple and smart solution in the event of data loss as you can use the auxiliary copies to restore the original contents on your drives.

Before backing up your documents, an important step you need to complete is to create your own CrashPlan account. What makes this application different from others from the same category is that you can share your account code with your friends and back up their PCs as well.

This application offers you four ways to back up your documents: online to CrashPlan Central, to a friend's computer, between your computers or to an attached drive. However, when backing up your files to CrashPlan Central you might have to wait a while, even though you have a high-speed Internet connection.

To conclude, if you're looking for ways to create safe copies of the important files and folders within your Mac, you might consider trying CrashPlan as your backup and restore solution.
