I have been using Carbonite for on-line backup for 3 years or so. The price is right, but I have become increasingly frustrated with its limitations: throttling to 2 or 3 GB per day (it is still backing up 32 GB of images I loaded on 12 March!), exclusions of certain file formats, and poor technical support.

So, I added CrashPlan as a second on-line backup in December 2012. It is much faster (only days to back up the same 32 GB of images), supports most file formats, and I have not had to use their tech support (at least not yet).

I am much happier with CrashPlan, but before I disable Carbonite in CrashPlan's favor, I am curious to know if others have had experience with CrashPlan.

Cheers,
Lloyd
