comment Will crashplan offsite backup work if crashplan goes out of business?
Thanks for confirming restore works without CP central. If you ever come back here, please also answer the mirror side: will local backup work without CP infrastructure?

comment Will crashplan offsite backup work if crashplan goes out of business?
Great question. One way to test: setup 2 computers to backup to each other on a private network and disable or unplug any connection to external networks (e.g. internet). For exta verification a good idea to leave it in disconnected state for some time (weeks, months) to ensure it's not using cached CP central credentials or something. If someone does do this test, please let us know how it goes.

comment Crashplan: Disable cloud backup option permanently
A confusion arises because on a new install the Crashplan Central backup destination is shown as a green button, as the 30 day free trial is active, and can't be removed or disabled (turned grey). This makes it look as if you're going to back up to cloud no matter what. However if you go in to Settings >> Destinations then for each set there are check boxes to turn on/off Folders, Crashplan Central, Other Computers, etc.

comment What file format/database format does Picasa use?
Looks like interesting project, but even though it's on Sourceforge there's no code and no documentation, just a bare .exe with a one sentence overview. I don't run such things outside a sandbox with realtime process and file monitoring. I don't have one available right now and there's not enough incentive to make one. If you want this project to get used I suggest documentation, at the very least.

while too brief to be a good answer here, the 96pdi point can be vital. see howto-outlook.com/faq/unsharpimages.htm for more.
