1 SpiderOak = Good Idea + Bad Implementation

I used SpiderOak for a year and wish I could get that year back. SpiderOaks de-duplication and encryption features are great, but implemented in such a way that the long you use the service and the more systems you backup to the same account, the harder it is to add another system to the account. This is because when you add a new computer, SpiderOak client has to replay every backup from every other system. After using SpiderOak for 1 year with 5 systems I tried to add a 6th system, the time to replay the backups from the first 5 systems took over 24 hours and killed the systems performance in that time.
