What's to stop you using the free local backup on several computers to back them up to another one, then having a single paid plan on that one to backup up it and the backups to the cloud?

How does the ransomware protection work? If ransomware encrypts some files, and they get backed up, do you have access to the pre-encryption versions?

What's the recovery sequence? Reinstall Windows, install Crashplan, recover? How well does it cope with recovering to different hardware, eg smaller drive, different version of Windows, etc?

How does it deal with deleted files? Do they remain available for restore after the next backup? If so, do you have to do anything special to avoid including them in a full restore?
