What’s Your BackUp Plan?
My agent instructed me to bring a passport to my audition for a spot that would shoot in Brazil. At the casting office, I realized that my borderline OCD organization skills failed me.
I forgot it. Then I realized I had scanned a copy of my passport into my computer at home. Well played, borderline OCD! So I whipped out my phone, clicked on my Carbonite app, and selected a file I cleverly called “Passport”. Calamity avoided.
You can access any files you back up on Carbonite from any computer with internet access or smartphone. That’s pretty handy.
Carbonite has a 15-Day Free Trial. If you use this referral link to sign up, and decide to buy the service, you will get a $20 gift card. You get unlimited backup to The Carbonite Cloud for only $5/month. I just signed up for another 3 years. I have over 500GB of photos, videos, music, spreadsheets and documents on Carbonite.
Carbonite automatically backs up your computer files in the background. 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.
