Replacement for Crashplan
« on: September 16, 2017, 07:57:30 PM »

I've used Crashplan for a number of years,  but as any existing users will know they are moving to a businesses only model, so I'm looking for a replacement.

As both myself and my brother have servers which are on 24/7 it would be good if we could both backup to each others servers. This will still give us off site backup with the added advantage we can fairly easily grab the disc's should we need to do a major restore.

I've found a program called Backup Cow, has anybody had any experience using this or alternatives which can do the same?

Hi Ronski, I was just reading last months Web User magazine and they have a 2 page article on Crashplan.

I was going to type some of the 3 options but then found this page that appears to show the whole article.

I did look at Carbonite and Back blaze but unfortunately they don't work with Windows Home Server, they think a business will be running WHS2011!

I use Acronis True Image.

I use it to backup to my external usb drive. I think they also have a cloud solution too. I'm not sure how much it costs or if its included in the price though.

I also use Acronis to backup to the server, then Crashplan to back that up to the cloud along with other files.

I going to give Syncthing a go, just need to find the time to play about with it.
