When our first son was born, I spent hours managing his baby photos. I’d move them from the camera to the computer and then manually back them all up. It was 2010 and things were a lot different (even though that’s only 5 years ago!). It’s so much different than how we did things with my twins’ photos. Everything was backed up automatically. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard friends or a family member talk about their computer crashing and losing years of photos or important paperwork. My husband once dropped (and broke) his laptop and had never backed up his files for his dissertation and lost YEARS of work in one moment. And now that we have three little ones that like to play on the computer, there’s always the possibility of them deleting something accidentally. It has happened!
That’s why I love the idea of Carbonite! Carbonite helps to make sure you’ll always have your precious memories, important files and data– easily and at a low cost. They protect your irreplaceable files with automatic and secure cloud backup. Carbonite was developed after both co-founders had family members had lose data on their computers, much like my husband. David Friend’s daughter called him frantic after her hard drive had crashed containing her term paper she had worked on for six weeks. His partner Jeff’s wife lost years of baby photos and financial records when her laptop was stolen. It was after these incidents that David and Jeff founded Carbonite as a safe and secure backup system.
