It happens when you least expect it. You turn on your computer, and there’s nothing but a black screen and a flashing cursor.
If your situation ends like mine did, you just lost a lot of data. My hard drive died, and I wish I had backed up my information somewhere—anywhere. My mind jumped to question what exactly was lost and what were the implications. Data loss can also come from other directions, such as having your computer stolen. Regardless of your profession or how you use your computer, more than likely you’ve got some important files stored. What we all need is a safe, secure option to painlessly back up files. Carbonite Online Backup provides you exactly with that option.
Carbonite is easy. It installs a small program onto your computer which works in the background without taking up too much space. The program then constantly checks for newly created or altered files, and backs them up to remote servers. Carbonite will only run while your computer is idle so you never have to worry about it hampering your use.
In the terrible case that you do need to retrieve your files, all it takes is a few clicks on Carbonite’s website and you can restore some or all of your backed up files in a few hours to a few days (depending on the size of your data).
