Gonna back it up, back it up, back it up…


Reader TB asked: “Which service do you use to back up your computer files?” Answer: Carbonite.  Why? Carbonite has unlimited back up space and it’s less expensive than Mozy.

If you use my referral link, you can try Carbonite Home FREE.  If you decide to buy, they’ll give you 2 bonus months with your subscription.

I have 500GB of photos, videos, music, spreadsheets and documents on Carbonite.  I had Mozy a few years ago, but cancelled when Mozy started charging extra for additional back up space.

Thankfully I have not had to use Carbonite to get my files back in the event of theft, fire, or computer crash.  I have used it numerous times that I have accidentally deleted files.  I was able to instantly retrieve the backup version from Carbonite, and continue working.  It’s worth the $4.92/month for that peace of mind.

  1. Totally agree…Carbonite is terrific…..Smile when I see the green dot beside a document or picture….assures me that it has been backed up. I think they back it up three times, just in case their system should go down too.

  2. Me too! And I bought the extra, external hard drive upgrade. My computer guy cleaned up my computer, off loaded, saved, and loaded everything back up…except what was on my desktop, because, “Who keeps stuff on their desktop?” to quote him. I do! Or did…fortunately, Carbonite had it all backed up…
