Three years ago we were in a neighborhood forest fire. We woke up in the middle of the night with the flames in our backyard. There was no time to grab anything except the kids and the dog. I drove away in tears knowing we just lost everything.
God and the wind spared us. We had complete outside damage, but not one thread of carpet was harmed on the inside.
My next door neighbors were not so fortunate.
Did you know?
- A survey from Carbonite found that 82% of Americans only keep electronic files saved on their computer hard drive. This means that most are at risk for losing their files forever — whether it be precious photos of their kids, a pricey music collection, or important documents — if their computer is damaged by severe weather.
- 40% of Americans feel like they would never be able to recover, recreate or repurchase lost items if their personal computer were destroyed.
- FEMA found that 40 to 60 percent of small businesses never re-open after a disaster in which company data was lost, which suggests that better backup preparation may have helped.
Photos are always the first thing on my mind. Now in the digital age all of my photos are on my computer. Every single one. Last year I decided to needed to take charge and make sure that I never ever lose them. I bought Carbonite.
Carbonite is an online backup service where you do absolutely nothing and you are safe. You’ll never lose your files. Ever.
Everyday Carbonite backs up all of my new files without me even knowing it does. It works in the background of my computer automatically. I can easily tell by a little colored dot if that particular file has been saved yet. If not I can back it up myself.
I access ANY file wherever I am and have online access, even on my smartphone. I can get ALL of my files back if my laptop was ever lost or damaged. Easily.
To me, buying Carbonite is worth every penny because I now feel safe knowing that I can never lose a thing.
