It is best practice to have an on-site and an off-site backup of your important data that cannot be easily replaced. CrashPlan makes on-site and off-site backups a breeze. You can do off-site backups using CrashPlan’s “back-up to a friend” feature.
Step 1 – Download CrashPlan’s backup software
Download and CrashPlan’s free version from http://www.code42.com/crashplan/download/.
Step 2 – Install CrashPlan on both the local computer and the remote machine
Follow the installation instructions to install the backup software on both the local machine and machine at the off-site location.
Step 3 – Setup Backup to a Friend
Follow the most current instructions from http://support.code42.com/CrashPlan/Latest/Backup/Backing_Up_To_A_Friends_Computer
Step 4 – Do initial backup on the local (source) computer
If have a large amount of data to backup, you will want to speed up the initial backup process by first backing up to an external hard drive then move the drive to the remote location. Follow these instructions to complete this part: http://support.code42.com/CrashPlan/Latest/Backup/Backing_Up_Very_Large_File_Selections_To_Another_Computer
After following these steps, your data will be backed up to a remote (off-site) location. Remember, always backup!
Notification Sounds Issue
Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes with a lot of new features to be excited about. Unfortunately, new releases include bugs and other hiccups. After waiting for the Marshmallow update to be released to my Samsung Galaxy s5, I noticed that my notification sounds were not working for incoming text, etc. Videos would play in my YouTube app, but I missed some text that came in because I did not hear the sound. I checked to make sure that the sound settings for notifications were still set correctly; they were.
I started searching around to see if anyone had the issue. Some people in a forum suggested resetting the phone to factory defaults and not syncing the backed up data to the phone. Several unlucky people tried the suggestion us to find themselves with a squeaky clean phone and no notification sounds.
Searching more, several users reported that doing several reboots corrected their issue. So, since I really did not want to reset my phone (holding out a little longer to upgrade to the new Samsung Galaxy s7 Edge), I rebooted my phone a few times. I rebooted it about 3 or 4 times and BAM! my notification sounds were working again. Thanks to helpmynexusgoogle for the working solution!
So glad I did not have to reset my phone. I hope this will help someone that runs into the same small but annoying issue.

The Internet of Things. We are headed in that direction. In some ways, we are already there. What really scares me is that one day a hacker may hack into my fridge and cause my milk to spoil.
In computing, the Internet of Things (also known as the Internet of Objects) refers to the networked interconnection of everyday objects.
