Backin It Up With Carbonite!

Wow, I think they should pay me for that tagline! 🙂

Seriously though, almost lost my laptop a few weeks ago…and all the files that it contains…scary scary stuff. Thankfully, I always back up my client’s work to Dropbox, so that material was safe.

But what about everything else?? I was freaking. My husband has been after me for months to check out Carbonite. As I frantically tried to back up everything on my laptop to a flash drive, I finally gave in. For a mere $59 per year, Carbonite pulled everything from my computer (files and programs) and stored them on their site. It regularly updates whatever I’m doing and saves it. I can access my files from any computer, anywhere in the world. Lovin’ it!

I wonder though….it’s kind of scary having everything ‘out there’ on the Internet. What do you think?
