Data Loss is Inevitable

The statistics are staggering: 43% of computer users accidentally delete irreplaceable files every year; only 3% of stolen laptops are ever recovered; and 19% of hard drives crash within their first year. Data loss is no longer a matter of if, but rather when.

Onsite Storage is Not Enough

Even the most diligent computer users are at risk if their backups are stored onsite. Theft, fires, floods and other disasters can render onsite backups useless. Carbonite Online Backup protects your photos, emails, music, financial records, important documents and more in a secure, offsite location.

Over 200 Million Files Restored

Carbonite has already backed up over 2.5 billion files, and more importantly, recovered over 200 million files that otherwise would have been lost forever.

How It Works

A Small Application
on Your Computer

Carbonite installs a small application on your computer that works quietly in the background looking for new and changed files that need to be backed up. It looks and feels just like part of your computer, and is integrated with your desktop—there's no new interface for you to learn.

Easy and Automatic Backup

When your computer is idle, Carbonite automatically backs up your new and changed files. You don't have to do anything! When you're using your computer, Carbonite goes to sleep so it will never slow you down or interfere with your Internet connection.

Privacy and Security

Carbonite double encrypts your files, just like banks, so you can be sure your files are safe and only you can see your files — guaranteed. We even give you the option of keeping your own encryption key.

Fast, Simple Recovery

With Carbonite, file recovery is quick and hassle-free. If you accidentally delete or otherwise lose files, it takes just a few clicks on your desktop to get them back. If your computer is damaged, stolen or "just dies" and you lose all your files, just visit Carbonite's website from a new computer. Within minutes you'll be able to begin restoring all your files.

in fact, not to use, since it’s completely automatic.”
