Best backup method.... is it Carbonite?
Posted on 2010-11-15
I need to setup a backup system for about 100Gig of data. I used to use Retrospect software and backup to two external hard-drives rotating every week and store the latest one in a fireproof safe.
Well I have outgrown my external hard drives and I am looking for an inexpensive alternative.
I have heard about Carbonite many times and was wondering about its practical use. I have a home based business and the I need to have a reliable and east way to backup.
Do any of you experts out there recommended this Carbonite?. or should I just upgrade my external hard drives and continue backing up the way I was? One thing to note, I do like to reformat my work station at least once a year, so I will need an easy way to restore ALL my data at least once a year. Will this Carbonite be quick with this? My internet connection is giving me about 12 Mb/s downloads and 1Mb/s uploads....What do you folks think?...Thanks Fred
