If you thought the wails of anguish that emanate from a gazelle being attacked by a lion were horrific, that’s nothing compared to the wails of anguish that will escape your lips if your computer dies and takes everything with it. A lifetime of photos and videos, countless files, a music library that spans the decades –– gone. Caput. But the solution to this worst case scenario is simple.
Carbonite is a secure online backup system for your entire computer that, should disaster strike, can restore all your files onto your repaired or new computer. We checked out a few services like this, but we think Carbonite is the best online backup system because it has unlimited data storage for a flat rate of $59 per year. That’s right, no matter how many pictures you have of your daughter’s third birthday (complete with a pony-riding princess), Carbonite will store it all safely.
And Carbonite backups are far from out of sight, out of mind. You can access any of your files from your computer or smart phone any time. So watch this Twirl to see how you can avoid distraught howls in favor of set-it-and-forget-it peace of mind.
