Well for $125 they send you a disk (ground shipping), which you then load up and return to them (also ground shipping), so it takes at least 8-10 business days to get your first terabyte on their servers. That doesn't seem like a good deal to me, as I can upload that much data (or more) in the same amount of time.sphardy wrote:StephenB wrote:Yes, but it is limited to a terabyte jumpstart, which doesn't seem to be that useful (and seems pretty pricey).
For the average home user I think the deal is very reasonable.
While I have multiple Terabytes of data, the absolutely critical-cannot-afford-to-lose data aggregates to less than 1 TB. The cost of seeding CP is not much more than the price of a 1TB disk but is more secure - equivalent to the cost of storing a USB drive offsite but without the hassle + all the CP benefits. And I do consider it primarily an additional backup option for the worst case scenario.
I wish they offered this to non-US customers (when enquiring via their customer support I got fobbed off with the standard "We would like to but no schedule for it yet")
