Carbonite is like your automatic lifesaver if you are someone like me and has a lot of photos and music on your hard drive. Because while I painstakingly remember to backup my photos onto an external hard drive as often as possible, I honestly have a horrific fear of losing my digital photos. It has happened before and it’s like what I would assume a house fire is like. Photos are so important to me and therefore so is having a computer backup.
With the promo code BLOGAD you can get two free months off the use of Carbonite’s online backup service. It’s a service which works in the background of your system securely backing up the folders or files you setup to be backed up and stores them in the infamous “cloud” whenever you need them to OR anytime you are connected to the internet, which thanks to WIFI is essentially all the time these days, right?
And then since the files go to the cloud you can access them anywhere, anytime and that means being able to show off your photos to anyone, whenever you want to as long as you have the internet at your disposal. And yes, there are mobile apps so you can use your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android or Blackberry Smartphone.
Carbonite is not for backing up huge software executables or anything like that, those things are already on discs and thumb drives you don’t need them to be accessed on the cloud. This is just for documents, photos, music and stuff like that which you can’t replicate if it disappears. And that would just be sad.
Now I don’t have to worry about losing my pictures ever again. :)
