Keep Your Files Close and Safe with Carbonite

Computer problem

Imagine you turn on your computer one day and nothing looks right. You’ve lost all the work you have been doing all semester and all the pictures from your wedding five years ago. These were saved on your computer but you didn’t think to use a cloud back up system like Carbonite.



Carbonite backs up all of your most important files and pictures automatically! It also prevents them from being accidentally deleted and keeps them safe from hardware failures and malicious attacks. Even if your computer’s hard drive happens to fail, you can restore your files instantly with just a couple of steps. This works too if your laptop gets stolen! Did you know that more than 50% of computer viruses can get past your anti-virus software?  Carbonite also cleans your files and restores them if you happen to catch a virus on your computer!



Carbonite also offers convenience. You can access your files from any computer, anytime, and anywhere! All you need to do is log into your account and your files are readily available. You will also have access to your files on other devices such as your smartphone or tablet.


The Cloud

Carbonite uses cloud back up technology which involves sending a copy of your data to an offsite cloud provider. The cloud provider keeps your data secure and readily available – in real time! The files are kept securely in an offsite location so that if you accidentally delete data or if your worst nightmare comes true and your computer crashes, you don’t have to worry about losing your data. Many cloud vendors maintain various data centers. Carbonite uses its own data centers and remotely stores your files there.


One important thing to note is that Cloud backup and Cloud storage are two different animals. Cloud storage is usually free, which results in many customers using it more often than Cloud backup. However, it’s important to know that Cloud storage does not offer the same protection against data loss. Storage systems like Dropbox and Google Docs enable users to share and sync files. These services only provide backup for the files you’ve selected to share.


On the other hand, Carbonite automatically backs up all of your folders, files, and photos on a continuous basis. Every time you open a file, edit it, and save it, it gets automatically updated and backed up into the Cloud as well. Carbonite uses encryption at every step to protect data.
