When you need to backup and access your data from anywhere, you can find several good online backup solutions available out there, but for real-time backups, you need to setup an external device. The good news is that with Carbonite you can do both, without installing any hardware component. It’s all web-based and very easy to use. Let’s see why it’s my first choice when it comes to automatic computer backup.
First of all, Carbonite is an unlimited online backup service that anyone can use to save content like music, photos, documents, email, settings and others on the company’s servers. It works continually, in the background, without interfering with your activity and can be easily setup to perform scheduled backups, or backup multiple versions of the same files. All it needs is an active Internet connection.
More than that, you can access the backed up files from any computer, even from your mobile phone, using the free Carbonite apps designed for the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Blackberry or Android smartphone. Other things you can do include the management of your own encryption key and the priority setting for choosing the files to be recovered first.
As for security, Carbonite uses enterprise-grade servers, bank-level privacy protection and highly-guarded data centers.
You can restore your files at any time, in case you accidentally deleted a file or a folder, if your computer crashed or is stolen, or when you’re not at home and need to access your files from another computer.
Carbonite is available as a subscription-based service for both home users and business users with a PC or Mac, at a starting price of $59 per year, but now you can use the offer code BLOGAD to get your two free months with the purchase. Try Carbonite for free for 15 days and backup your photos, music files and other important files on your computer.
