Enter to win a $100 giveaway from CrashPlanThis is a sponsored post.
So we have all been there. That moment when your computer sort of fizzles or the photo storage place you love goes out of business… and suddenly PANIC. Serious panic.

A few years ago the external hard drive to my laptop started clicking and then all of a sudden I could no longer access it. I called a computer tech person and he had me bring it down to his shop. I had W bouncing on my hip, had piles of work to do, but my entire world was stopped because my entire digital world was now in the hands of a stranger in a cubical. The tech finally told me he could, at best, extract data from one month of the drive. I two years of my digital life on there: photos, music, home movies, short stories. But I picked the month that I could never replace: April, 2009. The month my son was born.

I heard about CrashPlan after doing research for a secure and cloud-based backup program that would work on multiple computers. I wanted something that would work for my computer as well as Mom’s. And, in case of emergency, I needed to be able to access the backup anywhere. I also like that you can set a backup to happen on another computer. So I can have a backup of my Mom’s computer on my machine. I can also have a backup on my account in Dropbox.

CrashPlan has a free option that is a way for you to set up and create backups within a network of computers.

Get to know CrashPlan by checking out their features page. Their goal is to help users have a “worry free digital life”.
