Overall Satisfaction with CrashPlan
Currently we use Crashplan to cover endpoint backup for all our users in the environment. We also use it for backups of our file servers. We are currently looking into leveraging the software to help with user migration and potential legal compliance with the new tools Code42 has added to the software.
- End user backup. Every file is versioned and kept for a specific amount of time. (Administrator configured.) I never have to worry about a user losing files due to either a crash or error.
- Restores. I have the option to search or browse, show or remove deleted/hidden files, and go back in time if needed to find previous revisions.
- Stability. Once I get things set up, it's hassle free to keep things running.
- Automation. I have the installer packaged, and the end user can register themselves when the package is pushed to their system.
- Restore searching. I would like to see a more robust interface for restores. Currently when switching to show or hide deleted files, the window resets making you go into the directory hierarchy again.
- Client customization. Currently the client customization with logos/text changes is possible but not well documented or supported.
- Crashplan has saved my users countless hours of re-work due to lost or misplaced files. This directly impacts our bottom line.
- Using the ability to perform user migrations will wind up saving hours of work in the IT department.
I wound up selecting Crashplan as my first solution.
Crashplan is excellent for anyone who needs to make sure they are covered for almost any issue that arrises. Be it loss of data due to failure of hardware, theft, or user error.
