Now though Thursday, January 3rd – Carbonite will give you a $20 Amazon gift card if you use my referral link to buy their computer file back-up service. Try it for free for 15 days. If you like it, it’s $59/year (that’s $1.14/week). The first year is effectively $39 with the gift card.
I have used Carbonite to automatically back up my computer files for years. I have 500GB of photos, videos, music, spreadsheets and documents on Carbonite.
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 when I have accidentally deleted files. I was able to instantly retrieve the backup version from Carbonite, and continue working. You can even access any backed up files from any computer connected to the www – or even from your iPhone, Android, or BlackBerry.
It’s well worth the $1.14/week for that peace of mind.
