What do you use for offsite backup? Here's why I ask: For a few years I've been using CrashPlan as my primary backup, and rsnapshot as a secondary. About once a year, it seems, CrashPlan does something troubling and it's always felt like Linux takes a back-seat to their Windows and Mac platform. My CrashPlan setup failed again 48 hours ago, with a difficult-to-resolve auto-update that messed up its omnibus-installed Java JRE. Upon a fresh reinstallation the UI fails to start and I get peer-auth problems in logs. Enough's enough but I haven't found an alternative to spending a couple days of debugging busted CrashPlan, er, crap whenever this happens. BackBlaze still won't do Linux. CrashPlan has clearly invested the most effort into defining a useful system, but I'm ready to consider one of the others if any of y'all have had positive experiences elsewhere. -rich
