    Hi All

    Iv'e got crashplan installed and have backed up my NAS files to a USB drive that I can offsite.

    I currently have 200gb of data, although i will take a long time is it worth the effort to use a cloud service to back up this much data?

    This is my get out of jail card if the raid 1 NAS fails and the external drive.
    It gives me the 3rd back up option that should not get used. (i hope)

    Worthwhile or to much data?

    Cheers Phil

    I'm backing up 2 TB + 600 GB + 100 GB. Three macs and a drobo. Great deal.

    I would say 200GB is average. No problem there. Crashplan is awesome for this exact reason, keeping your actual data size down by compressing it. I've used it for years with no issues. :)
