Editors' Review

Finding outside storage to back up computer files is critical in the event of a technical problem. CrashPlan for Mac is a well-designed program and cloud service that performs its function as a data storage application.

CrashPlan for Mac is available as a free application, but the cloud backup service is free for 30 days. After that time, users must sign up for a subscription service based on the amount of storage needed and the number of computers they'd like to run the app on. The program's native installer quickly set up the program. The program's main menu is easy to use, despite the lack of user instructions. Simple buttons identify options for syncing the computer to the cloud storage and other related options. The sync, itself, began quickly, although it took a long time to complete initially, since it required reading and backing up the entire system. The application then monitors the computer for changes and only syncs that new information, reducing upload time. If the user needs to retrieve data from the cloud after a problem occurs, the options to do this are similarly easy to operate.

For those users who do not want to use an external drive, CrashPlan for Mac offers a complete computer data backup that is simple to use and works well.
