My Carbonite backup status

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 8-Jun-2006 11:26

In a previous post I talked about Carbonite (affiliate link), an on-line backup service. This is just an update on how things are going. The status report seems good:

That's right, almost all files/folders I've set for automatic backup are now on the server. Next thing I will try is a restore to see how fast it works.

It took about four days to upload these 5.7GB. My current connection at home is 10Mbps download/2Mbps upload, so this can give you the idea of traffic.

The service costs US$5/month for unlimited storage, so it should be a good off site strategy. Better than copying to an external drive and sending it to some friend's place. At least it is more readily available if I need to restore anything in an emergency.
