I’ve been hearing a lot about Carbonite these days. Carbonite is an online computer backup company. Backing up data on the computer an absolute necessity f you store sensitive files or work from the computer (as I do) or simply have scads and scads of photos of the kids and grandkids and would be devastated if you lost them. One of my relatives had all her kids’ photos on the computer– 6 years’ worth. The computer hard drive croaked and THEY.LOST.EVERYTHING. They had never backed up the data. It took them a long time to get over that. 🙁
Well, I do all my business from my computers, so I am inda nervous whenever my hard drive starts making funny noises. I backup my stuff on a portable hard drive from time to time… but honestly, I am so busy that I often forget to add stuff to it. And I haven’t figured out how to sync the blasted thing yet, either, so I wind up copying my ENTIRE hard drive all over again! Grrr.
Well, Carbonite seems a lot easier and the prices is right! I thought it would be very expensive, but it’s only $59 a year!! And Carbonite has a promotional offer going on, too— use the code <strong>BLOGAD</strong> on sign up and get two months free! Carbonite also allows you to try out their serice for 15 days for free, too. The more I read about it, the more convinced I am that Carbonite is perfect for me.
Of course, Carbonite doesn’t back up EVERYTHING on the computer. Just the important, irreplaceable stuff– documents, photos, etc. No videos, though, and no software programs (never backupi software, just reinstall it onto the computer again). Also– and this is PRIMO– I can access my files with my iPhone and iPad using the Carbonite app!!! How cool is that?! That was such a pain when I travel, not being able to view data. With Carbonite, it’s possible!
Definitely check it out. It’s very worth it.
