Fair and honest answer. It's completely expected and normal, otherwise they'll probably close and we wouldn't even get the chance to renew...Xoanan wrote: ↑Nov 23rd, 2012 10:59 amfrom chat support:
We totally -love- our current customers! However, this special promotion is for the purpose of attracting new customers to subscribe to CrashPlan+. This could be compared to when a magazine offers a big discount to get you to sign up, in the hopes that you'll continue to subscribe for the long term. I hope this makes sense, and I am sorry if this seems unfair.
We do have other holiday sales coming up in the near future. Look for details to be posted to our website in the next couple of weeks.

If you don't renew, they will delete the data after a certain period I would guess.... After you've gone through the painstaking process of uploading though, they're banking on you not cancelling.Newb2this wrote: ↑Nov 23rd, 2012 11:20 amThank you.
It went from 2.60 to 5.00 while I was looking at Crashplan reviews :P. Still got it tho! Great discount.
One question. If I back up 467537 GB say, what happens if I don't renew at $120 next year?
Also, how secure/private is my Data?
Thanks again OP!

It's a shame it's not for life. I was just planning on using it for picture and docs backup, not my whole system.G77 wrote: ↑Nov 23rd, 2012 11:30 amIf you don't renew, they will delete the data after a certain period I would guess....

Your data is as secure as your password i.e. make it rock solid....
Been using them for 2 years now and highly recommended.

You can selectively backup whatever you like, I only backup my pics, docs and music. This amounts to 400GB for me, so using a free solution like dropbox etc is not going to wash - if you have small amounts you might get away with a free solution.

Yes, I have to agree. I actually hit up their support to ask for some discount, hoping they'd at least knock a little off for me. (mine is up in 34 days or so)

I was at least expecting a free 32" TV with this deal.
