One of the truths about computers is we need to back up our data – not just on an external hard drive or other device, but off site as well. Another truth is back up is a pain in the patooty and lots and lots of us put it off.
Which means, when the hard drive goes down, or the laptop gets stolen, we’re up the creek.
Fortunately there’s a real solution. It’s Carbonite Online Backup. Unlimited backup–secure and encrypted, for just $49.95 per year. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now. There’s a free trail, it’s easy to install, and it operates almost without any attention to me. Carbonite is designed to back up only when my computer isn’t busy. My files are safely stored someplace other than my home office.
I read the instructions for restoring and they made sense to me. I called customer service and someone answered. I even went though the instructions to see what had been backed up, and as near as I can tell, every single file in my universe is now safe. And I didn’t have to do much at all.
Since the darn thing backs up when the computer is quiet, my backup is current. All without me paying any attention at all. How cool is that?
Yeah, if you buy through the link, I’ll make a commission. None-the-less: Try Carbonite Online Backup FREE for 15 days and back up your irreplaceable files automatically and securely. No credit card required! I suggest you get started right away.
