Stocks in this article: CARB

BOSTON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As Backup Day—a  global movement encouraging people to protect their digital files—approaches on March 31, a study from Carbonite finds that 39 percent of Americans have not backed up their files in over a year, if ever. Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of cloud backup solutions, reminds people to honor Backup Day by protecting their most valuable files with online backup.

From photos of your child's first day of school to a presentation for tomorrow's meeting, people store an enormous amount of precious data on their devices. In fact, Carbonite found that people with music and movies on their computers have spent an average of $406 on that content. However, people rarely take the time to protect their files simply because they either don't know where to start, or think the process is too daunting.

From hard drives and flash drives to syncing and storage, protecting your files can be confusing, and, when you think about everything on your to-do list, the whole process can also sound time consuming. For those who are apprehensive of the process, online backup from Carbonite is an easy way to ensure that all of their files are always protected, and plans start at just $59 per year.

Carbonite automatically protects data in the cloud Carbonite stores files safely off-site, is more reliable than external hard drives and makes it easy to monitor the backup status of your files. The software is 'set it and forget it --' automatically backing up whenever a change or addition is made -- to free users from the hassle of remembering to protect their important files and worrying if their data is safe.

In addition to providing automatic and secure backup protection, Carbonite online backup also provides people with Anytime, Anywhere Access to their backed up data, so that they can easily access view, download or share their files from any computer, smartphone or other internet-connected device no matter where they are.
