You know, if your computer gets stolen or destroyed, the drive you connect to it to run backups is likely to get stolen or destroyed at the same time. Once you have a good local backup, it’s time to consider backing up at least some of your data to the cloud as well.
There are many good cloud-backup systems, but my favorite over the years has been Carbonite. It is easy to setup and use. It has been very reliable for my clients who use it. So this past year, I signed up as a partner with Carbonite. As a Carbonite partner, I can better help you get the plan you need and if you register through me, I will automatically get access to your account through a dashboard app so that I can monitor your backups. I will now be able to know immediately whether there are any problems with your cloud-backup and work quickly to repair the issue before you lose any data.
