Online Backup Redux

I signed up for a year of Carbonite Online Backup. It isn’t my ideal laptop backup solution, but it seems to be better than any of my alternatives.


  • It just works. It doesn’t require manual intervention and I don’t need access to the corporate network.
  • Only $50/year.


  • They don’t support Macs.
  • It doesn’t let me review which files are awaiting backup.
  • It uses the now standard license that let’s them change the terms any time they wish.
