Countless Windows users have using the awesome Carbonite cloud backup service to protect their irreplaceable photos and other important files for years.
Well, I have some great news for Mac users: You can protect your important files with Carbonite as well!
As I’ve mentioned many times before, depending solely on a local backup to protect your photos and other important files from loss is playing with fire (figuratively, and possibly even literally).
Carbonite provides a super-easy way to create redundant off-site backups that will protect your files from permanent loss due to a fire, flood or some other catastrophic event. And at only $72 per year, I believe it’s a real bargain.
That’s why if you want the best protection possible for your precious files, backing them up locally to an external hard drive AND to the cloud with Carbonite is a true no-brainer. And yes, you can back up your Mac to the Carbonite cloud as well!
This page on the Carbonite website has lots of info about backing up your Mac.
Bottom line: Carbonite is great service that stores your backups in the cloud where a local disaster won’t be able to wipe out your backup sets.
But that being said, I still recommend that you also back up your Mac locally with its native Time Machine backup utility for the sake of redundancy.
