This week's sponsor here at TMO is CrashPlan, a company I'm thrilled to write about because I use them and love their service (and yes, I pay for it!). In a nutshell, CrashPlan is an online backup service for your Mac (and other machines). You run a client application on your Mac, set it up with your account, and then it packs up your data, encrypts it, and securely ships a copy off to CrashPlan's servers over the Internet for … that day when you need it.
Once the first backup is finished, CrashPlan then goes into automatic mode, backing up anything that's changed on your Mac throughout the day, even keeping multiple versions available to you in the event you make a change you need to reverse.
As I said, I'm a long-time user of CrashPlan and truly love their service. It's a pleasure to have them on board as a sponsor, and I encourage you to check them out, too. Between now and February 24th they're offering TMO readers the same deal they offered attendees to the recent Macworld/iWorld Expo: 33% off list prices. Check it out, I think you'll be glad you did.
