I'd take you up on that bet but it would be like shooting geeks in a barrel. All seriousness aside, I checked with Carbonite once upon a time about that very thing and, other the normal RAID protection in a server (which, on that scale, is pretty reliable, especially since they have backup generation), only the business plans have data kept in more than one geographic location. Since CrashPlan is less expensive, I seriously doubt they have geographical redundancy, either. Still, data backed up on a Carbonite home plan is probably safer than most local backup solutions. Where plans like Carbonite's shine is the ease of maintaining an up to date offsite backup comparatively inexpensively.

As good as services like Carbonite are, they are NOT infallible. One should always have at least one backup in addition to a cloud backup; more is better as long as the backups are not all in the same place.

It's not likely to happen soon. There are still far too many people/places that can't get the affordable, unlimited broadband required to effectively utilize cloud services and it will be a long time before that can be corrected, if ever. It will happen eventually but not while I'm alive.

That's why there is all that rain and snow. Half of the country is covered by that cloud.

But now a district court judge has ruled that they have to stop. And it may be unconstitutional what they were doing. He has that checked.
Yep...and there can only be some fallout from that...if not a lot of fallout; as most people shunned it from the start....and i think we can figure out what happens from there if ya know what i mean...can you say...."BUSTED"!...
