The best way to decide whether or not you want to use CrashPlan is to give it a try! That's why we offer a free, full-featured, 30-day trial of CrashPlan for Home. This article includes everything you need to know to start your trial today.
Your 30-day trial begins automatically! Visit our Getting Started guide to learn how to get the most out of your trial.
What happens after the trial period ends depends on whether or not you purchase a subscription. You can continue using CrashPlan either way!
If you purchase a subscription during or after your trial, you can continue to use the full-featured version of CrashPlan. However, the number of computers you can continue to back up to CrashPlan Central will depend on whether you purchased one or more individual plans (each individual plan covers one computer), or a family plan (covers 2-10 computers).
Additionally, to keep any files backed up to CrashPlan Central that you added during the trial, you must purchase during the trial or during the 5-7 day grace period immediately following your trial.
You can continue to use many of CrashPlan's features without a subscription, including the ability to back up to local folders and external hard drives, other computers you own, and friends. However, some subscription-only features will be disabled:
