For files, photos and videos I've found google drive and google photos to be a great combination. Google photos immediately backs up phone content to their 'cloud' and syncs with your computers using google drive.

Recently google announced google drive would be discontinued December 2018 and replaced with two different solutions, one for home use and one for corporate use, for Home it’ll be 'back up and sync' and then for us it’ll be 'google drive file stream'.

I formerly used Carbonite, but they charge separately for every new device to be backed up. So I switched to iDrive, who lets you back up any number of devices as long as you don't exceed the byte limit for whichever tier you pay for.

I also used IDrive. I took advantage of a cheapskate offer from CNET and got the physical drive for free. It's been perfect for me and the wife with just 2 devices. We each take advantage of free backup services for our mobile devices.

I try to throw lots of photos to FB for the reason that I have a 3rd place (and Insta).

I think I'll try BackBlaze, though other than photos /video, most things are in Dropbox/Evernote/Github/VSTS, so I don't worry about the physical machines here. I guess some sync of corrupted files would be bad.

Amazon Glacier is tempting as a long term cold backup. Anyone tried Cloudberry software to easily manage things?

Forgot to add that periodically, I think a couple of times a year, on request and for no extra charge, iDrive will send you one or more physical drives for you to copy all your data onto, and send back to them.

I'm in the same situation as you with Crash Plan. Let us know how you like BackBlaze.

I'm sorry to hear about CrashPlan pulling out of the home backup business. I am a regular listener of the Home Server Show podcast, and CrashPlan was one that was mentioned a lot there. It will be interesting to see what solutions people mention here, because I'm also concerned about this. At home I've got an external Seagate HD. When I got it I tried setting up backup solutions using Windows Backup, but that failed miserably. I hadn't counted on the fact that Seagate HD's Linux wouldn't play nice with Backup. I doubt that it will play nice with PowerShell, either. So at least for home backup solutions, what do people use?

Kindest Regards,Rod

I use Amazon Prime photos and find it fairly useless since it doesn't allow for storing my photos in folders.

I use a host of other online service as well, Dropbox, Google Drive (another story), Flickr and Facebook.

There seems a real problem in getting people to back up particularly their smart phones and I hear of endless cases of people loosing their contacts, photos, etc. Recently I suggested to someone they back up their database (standalone one on a PC) and then copy it to hard drive. They questioned why copy to hard drive as it was now backed up and I pointed out that if the disk failed everything would be lost! It took a minute or two for what I said to sink in!
