What Do I Get?  

This service protects your data by automatically backing it up to a cloud-hosted service through a software program called CrashPlan. 

Why Do I Want It? 

CrashPlan securely and continuously backs up your data to the cloud, preventing data loss and allowing you to easily restore files. With CrashPlan, you can select which files are automatically backed up to an easy-to-use interface.

CrashPlan backs up your files every 15 minutes using limited processing power to prevent slowdowns and encrypts your data.
