I am interested in using some form of Cloud Backup to store my backups. I looked at Crash Plan but that seems to be a complete backup of data using their software. Maybe I misunderstand CrashPlan but how does one recover a complete OS if you had to restore the entire computer, does one have to rebuild the OS first then reinstall CrashPlan and then download the rest of ones data from their cloud? I prefer to backup completely my computers using either AOMEI or VEEAM and then store that single encrypted file off site somewhere. Cost would be a factor as I haven't won the lottery.
Anyone have thoughts on this?
