Positive user comments:
- On the plus side for Crashplan they have one of the better technical supports.
- The application I feel is very user friendly and you don’t even know it is running.
Negative user comments:
- Confusing and difficult software. There is also a lot of hidden stuff that you can only get from tech support.
- Horrible, After three days only 6% of my 500GB hard drive backed up.

I have been using Crashplan for over two years now and so far it has been great. I don't really have any complaints at all. I think most of the complaints I see are from people who don't realize how the system works and the fact that upload speeds from whatever the ISP is are usually far lower than download speeds. They think CP is uploading too slowly, but it can't go any faster than what the ISP's upload speed is. Some also think it is like Dropbox where they can store files in the cloud to be accessed like they are local to the computer. CP is meant to backup your files to a safe place "in the cloud". Anyway, I would highly recommend CP for cloud backup purposes.
