CrashPlan for Home Backup Service to be Discontinued

CrashPlan for Home parent company Code42 has announced they are pulling out of the consumer backup market. The company says CrashPlan for Home users will need to begin migrating away from the service soon, as it will go away as of October 2018.

CrashPlan for Home Backup Service to be Discontinued


Effective August 22, 2017, Code42 will no longer offer new – or renew – CrashPlan for Home subscriptions, and we will begin to sunset the product over several months. CrashPlan for Home will no longer be available for use starting October 23, 2018.

Code42 is giving their users plenty of time to migrate their data to another backup solution, and is also offering discounts on alternative solutions.

We will honor your existing CrashPlan for Home subscription, keeping your data safe, as always.

To allow you time to transition to a new backup solution, we’ve extended your subscription (at no cost to you) by 60 days.

CrashPlan for Home users can move over to the company’s Small Business backup plan, and the company is offering a 75% discount for the next 12 months. For those looking for other personal solutions, the company recommends trying competitor Carbonite.

Remote backup services like CrashPlan, Carbonite and BackBlaze (my personal favorite), have become popular with users who seek to keep a remote backup of their data, in addition to any local backups they may have using Time Machine or other local backup solutions.

The full text of the announcement and an FAQ can be found at the CrashPlan site.
