You can continue to use the free version of CrashPlan for Home normally until the end-of-support date, October 22, 2018. At that time, the CrashPlan app will stop working: it will not be able to back up or restore files, even to local folders or friends’ computers.
Anyone can migrate from CrashPlan for Home to CrashPlan for Small Business. You can migrate all your local backups and your cloud backups up to 1 TB per device if you choose to migrate to CrashPlan for Small Business.
Even if you don’t migrate to CrashPlan for Small Business or Carbonite, we strongly recommend that you find another backup provider that fits your needs.
