How it works.
The Carbonite cloud - explained.

Just install and let us do the rest! Your files are backed up automatically and continually, as long as you're connected to the Internet.

Encrypted copies of your files are transmitted to one of our state-of-the-art data centers, safe from computer glitches, hurricanes and everything in between.

With the cloud, your files go where you go, so you can access them anytime, anywhere. Airports, libraries, coffee shops - you name it.

Make the most of your subscription by downloading our Sync & Share app, exclusively for our customers.

If disaster (or spilled coffee) strikes, you can recover files from the cloud, in just a few clicks.

Carbonite's designed to be easy, but if you ever get stuck our U.S.-based customer support team is ready to help.

Simple setup. Automatic backup.
Install, then sit back and relax. We've got it from there.

You can now permanently remove "backing up the computer" from every to-do list. Once the Carbonite software is up and running, it works quietly in the background, continually adding new and changed files to the cloud. And when you're using your computer, the backup takes a back seat so you're not slowed down.

Unlimited cloud space
Space for everything but the kitchen sink (unless you have a photo of it). With our Personal Basic plan you'll have as much space as you need for snapshots, music, financial documents, contracts and more.

What can I back up?

The ultimate R&R - restore & rejoice.

It's a fact: computers crash, laptops get stolen and files get accidently deleted. But with Carbonite as your backup plan - and with the "Restore" button at your disposal - there's always a light at the end of the tunnel.

From one file
Lost or (whoops!) accidently deleted a file? No problem. Your files remain on our servers for 30 days. During this time, you can recover the lost file right from your PC through your account dashboard.

To everything
If your computer crashes, is stolen, or just dies, you can log into your account from your new computer, click "Restore" and follow the step-by-step recovery process that will have your files back to you in no time.

Or even just a piece
With the versioning feature (available to Windows users), you can make changes to your files worry-free. Carbonite can save up to three months worth of previous versions of your files, so that you're able to roll back if need be.

Where you go, we go
Access your files anytime, anywhere. Pull up photos from "back in the day" at your college reunion. Play all your songs from the cloud on your next road trip. Review a contract over coffee, after leaving your laptop at home. With your files at your fingertips, you can do all this and so much more.

From any mobile device, tablet or computer, you can retrieve files in just a few clicks.

"THANK YOU! It's been awesome seeing all the files magically come back to my new computer." - Susanna Metzger
