What We Like About Carbonite
- We like the range of plans. It has three different plans, all of which are reasonably priced considering you're allowed to backup an unlimited amount.
- Instead of having to browse through the program to pick which folders and files you want to back up, you just locate them on your computer like you'd do normally. Just right-clicking them and choose to add them to your backup plan.
- Files that are already backed up are easily identifiable, as are ones that aren't being backed up, by a small colored dot on the file's icon.
Something else I appreciated with Carbonite is just how simple restoring your data is to do. For obvious reasons, I think restore should be as easy as possible and Carbonite definitely makes it a breeze.To restore files, just browse through them online, backed up files directly through the program as if they still existed on your computer, even if you've deleted them. Because you get 30 days of file versioning, Carbonite makes it simple to restore a specific version of a file from a different time or day.
- Protect your files from accidental deletions, crashes, ransomware, viruses and other common threats.
- Easily recover lost files and folders.
- Access your data even when you’re not at your computer.
- Count on our award-winning customer support, available 7 days/week via phone, chat or email.
According to Tech Radar, Carbonite has its strengths and its weaknesses, just like every other cloud storage solution out there. They recommend it for users who are after a simple cloud backup package for a single computer, one that they can just set up and then forget about afterwards.
