We have long been in the "age of the computer." It's a vastly different world than when I was young and I'm not even that old - at least most days I don't feel that way. However, computers were just starting to become common-place when I was in high school. In fact, I vividly remember my computer applications course in high school where each computer needed their own boot disk in order to start. And this necessity continued into college as well. This was during the age of the 5-1/4 inch "floppy" disks. Anyone remember those?
Needless to say, things have come a long since then!
Because of the place that computers have in our lives and the information contained on them, it's always hard when we loose files for whatever reason. That's why it's so important to have a computer backup of your files. Enter Carbonite.
Carbonite allows for easy back-up of your most important files, documents, music, email and photos only- those things that are virtually irreplaceable. Whenever your computer is connected to the Internet, Carbonite will work automatically and continually in the background giving you peace of mind. It works on either a PC or a MAC and for $59 a year you have unlimited back up with anytime, anywhere access to your files. You can also access your files on your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android or Blackberry with a free app. It's that easy.
I'm not always great about backing up my files. While I do have an external hard drive just for that purpose, I don't always remember to use it. Added to the fact that if our home ever had a fire, even that wouldn't help me save all those files. Having an off-site online backup would give me more peace of mind.
