This shit's chess, it ain't checkers! Shit. They build jails 'cause of me.

Anyone have experience with Amazon Glacier? I currently use Crash Plan as an off site backup but was thinking about adding Glacier since it is so dirt cheap.

I have a question about the Crashplan Family plan. I was thinking of signing up for it and then adding my family's computers (we all live seperately) but I'm kind of anxious. How exactly do files from each computer get organised? Is there a seperate directory for each computer on the plan, or is everything thrown into one directory as the clients see it? And presumably, other members with access to the account can delete my stuff, yes?


Each computer will install the Crash Plan client and then sync up with your account. You then select the folders/directories that you want CrashPlan to monitor and it will back up to their servers under the computers "name". I'm not at my pc now but from I recall you don't see other computers from your plan within the client. From the website you can see all the computers associated with your plan. So no I don't believe you can accidentally or intentionally delete files from computer "A" while accessing the client from computer "B". If you're the only one with access to the website you should be fine.
