If you've ever crashed your computer (or accidentally done a clean install, like I have), you know how annoying it is to lose important files. It can vary from inconvenience to losing something completely irreplaceable, like digital photos. That's why it's important to perform a regular computer backup. There's an easy solution with Carbonite. Carbonite provides backup solutions for Mac or PC at $59 per year. You can try it free for 15 days, without a credit card, so you don't have to worry about being charged if you don't like it. If you do, and use code BLOGAD, you can get two months free when you purchase a subscription.
Carbonite automatically performs backups of documents, pictures, music, and email whenever you're connected to the internet. It won't backup files on hard drives or software programs, but those can be reinstalled and aren't really "irreplaceable." The online backup is automatic, secure, simple, and unlimited. You can access your files anywhere, from any device connected to the Internet - and there are mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, and Blackberry, so all your devices can be protected. If you're one of those people who knows they should backup, but doesn't, consider online backup with Carbonite.
