ImageCrashPlan is an application that will allow you to do online backups. There are a lot of services like this, but there is an extra option for CrashPlan. With Crashplan, you can backup between computers you own or that belong to a friend.

The process is real easy.

  1. Install CrashPlan on your computer
  2. Set up an account with your email address and a password. (done right in the application)
  3. Install Crashplan on another Mac, PC or Linux box.
  4. Login with the same credentials that you used in Step 2
  5. Start the backup and you’ll never have to worry about it again.

The nicest thing about CrashPlan is that it is so simple. RSync is nice but it takes some work to set up.

Also, since Crashplan will let you back up to a friend’s computer or a Mac Server you’re running, there won’t be a monthly fee.

Crashplan is a $20 application and can be found here.
