Clean House And Choose Carbonite For Online Backup

Stocks in this article: CARB





BOSTON, May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With spring cleaning well under way,  Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of online backup solutions for consumers and small to medium sized businesses, reminds people that  –  when they tidy up their digital files  –  they should consider the importance of online backup for keeping important documents, photos and music safe and secure.

Recent studies have found that half of Americans have lost or accidentally deleted files from their primary computer; and that one-third admits that they have never backed up their computers, or haven't done so in more than a year.* While it's important to sort through family photos or organize home office files, cleaning up your digital files does not ensure that these documents are protected. Carbonite backs up computer files automatically so you can set it and forget it; it's affordable and runs in the background without disturbing other programs. Should you experience a hard drive crash or purchase a new computer, Carbonite makes it easy to restore files, and ensures you haven't lost any important documents, photos or files. 

As you round out your digital cleaning, you'll want to protect your files with a service that is easy to manage. From syncing services that share files across devices but offer limited free storage space, to cloud storage, which saves files online but requires constant management every time a document is updated, there are a number of options to access your data. However, automatic online backup is the safest and easiest way to ensure your important files are always protected and recoverable.

"Spring is a popular time to think about organization and this can include a digital clean up too," said Tom Murray, senior vice president of marketing for Carbonite. "However, as you organize your files, it's important to remember to protect them as well.  Storage and sync are helpful, but online backup services are the best way to make sure your files are automatically safe."

In addition to providing an easy restore process alongside automatic and secure backup protection, Carbonite online backup also offers "anytime, anywhere" access to backed up data so that you can easily access files from any computer, smartphone or other internet-connected device.
