CrashPlan Bails on Home Users

CrashPlan is an interesting backup solution that uses a P2P method for backing up your data off-site. It was pretty handy and I know more than a few people who used this as their main off-site backup. Data remains encrypted and unavailable at the destination to maintain security. While the service is still available for business customers, home users will no longer be able to sign up or renew their subscription when it expires. I hope you have another plan, because CrashPlan is done.

We want you to know that we are doing everything we can to help our consumer customers make the transition with all the support they need. First, we will honor all existing CrashPlan for Home subscriptions and the data we store for consumers will remain protected. Second, we are offering a choice to transition to either our CrashPlan for Small Business product or to our preferred third-party consumer backup provider, Carbonite.
