Services like Dropbox, Google Drive and iCloud are syncing services that enable the user to keep files in sync between multiple PCs or mobile devices. An online backup service offers exactly what it states, a safe repository for all your files online.

Some of the benefits of an online back up include:

Beefed up security

CrashPlan subscribers can surround their digital life with 448-bit encryption, including a private key option. This rare combination of security measures creates a virtually impenetrable “force field” around your data. What’s more, we’ve taken extra steps to ensure our data centers comply with military-grade security standards and conform to industry best practices for power redundancy, cooling and fire protection

Automatic back up

There for you if disaster strikes, Code42 automatically backs up the file you are working on and can recognise which are the most important files to focus on.

Truly unlimited back up

Whether you require gigabytes or terabytes of online backup, a subscription to the CrashPlan Central cloud will set you free from file type and size roadblocks. Plus, we’ll never charge you extra to restore your files. They’re yours, after all.

Deleted file protection

If you accidentally delete a file or want to find something deleted you can find it using Code42s bak up.


Every version of every file is saved and available should you need it.


Though not as intuitive as Dropbox the back up enables you to find and share every version of every file you have created from any device.
