MacVoices #1283: Joe Kissell Takes Control of CrashPlan and Their Backup Services

Joe Kissell expands his series of Take Control books on the subject of backups with Take Control of CrashPlan Backups. Joe discusses why CrashPlan is his (and host Chuck Joiner’s) off-site backup service of choice, the different levels of backup they offer, and some of the factors you need to consider as you get started. Waxing poetic in places, Joe discusses the CrashPlan interface, the place it should occupy in your overall backup strategy, and much more.
