Backups to many locations (I like S3 and use wasabi - supported)
You can CRC validate
Does real-time monitoring of files
Does not use that much ram (compared to crashplan)
The business model is broken.
1) You are limited to 1tb of data - this is a show stopper. Turns out if you email and complain they can extent it. Even a low spec laptop has more than 1tb HDD. I want to back up HOME NAS box (most people have some variant)
2) Because my NAS runs a 'server' version of windows (it is a HOME version - Essentials) I have to buy the SERVER version of Cloudberry $120 - the desktop version is $30.
3) If I want the more than 1tb of data I would have to pay $300 - this is a show stopper.
4) Cloudberry agreed to up the 1tb limit on my $120 version once I bought it, but it did mean I could not test properly. The demo version limits to 1tb unless I use the unlimited, but then I was not sure which feature was from unlimited and which was from server versions. So I had to buy without testing properly!
5)There is some sort of maintenance $$$$ charge they want you to pay every year, it is unclear what this is for, looks like updates, but it seems a bit high and not something I like. Crashplan charged yearly, many are free, some you purchase for major versions, but Cloudberry charge for the software and a yearly fee....
6) the backup went smooth (wasabi is fast) but when I attempted to restore I hit issues (the data was okay but..). I built a new machine to simulate a restore, but my cloudberry license was locked to the old machine (no longer running) you have to email to get the license unlocked (this should be a feature on the website- with a limit on number of times). Show stopper. No restore until license is released and linked to the new machine (cost a day - release was a few hours, but US time - I am in the UK). Then things started to work.
7) Consistency check tasks cannot run with the real-time file system monitor! so the feature I liked had to be disabled. so I can consistency check 1/month
8) The new machine install was not smooth. I exported the settings from the old machine. But despite the backup storage 'prefix' being correct, the backup went into a new folder (machine name)! this was a disaster as wasabi have a deletion policy of 90 days (you pay for data over that 90 days even once deleted) so by backing up to the wrong folder I doubled my storage costs for 3 months! I had to delete the imported backup plan and do it from scratch. (I did verify all was correct on the import - guess this is a BUG)
