    Has anyone used Crashplan, Livedrive or other unlimited backup solutions?

    What experience have you had ?
    i.e

    speed (up and down Mbps)
    reliability
    most importantly : did they have your data when you went to restore?

    I have Crashplan and have been pretty happy with it. When I first installed it and did my initial backup (upload) it was able to saturate my then 2Mbps connection, so no complaint there. I have never had to use it to do a full restore, I have restored a few files here and there and that worked fine.

    Only issue I has was an odd thing I described in this thread. I have seen a couple other users with the same bug.
