Most of us today have thousands of pictures, music files, and email files stored on our computers. While I’m pretty lax with the music files and emails, I’m super neurotic about backing up my photos. I have thousands of them chronicling my son’s entire life so far, and I would be beyond devastated if I ever lost them. Carbonite offers an easy way to back up those precious memories without very much effort on your part. Once you install the program on your computer, it automatically and securely performs a computer backup of the files as long as you’re connected to the internet. Once they’re backed up, you can access them from just about any device that connects to the internet with free mobile apps for your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, or Blackberry. This feature makes it easy to access and share your photos with just about anyone. With no limits on space, you can back up 1GB or 100GB and more.
Your files are safely stored in a state-of-the-art data center until you need them. You can try the service free for 15 days (no credit card required), and if you decide to keep it, it’s only $59 a year. That works out to less than $5 per month. If you use the code BLOGAD, you’ll get two free months with your purchase. The subscription cost also covers unlimited customer support over the phone, through email, or through live chat, and it’s easy to transfer your account if you end up buying a new computer during your subscription time.
