Sometimes something I use gets me excited.

Well, my son was typing his paper for his Honors Lit class and somehow was on a temporary profile. We're not sure why. When he logged on tonight, you guessed it — HIS PAPER WAS GONE.

I searched everywhere — .tmp files and everything. Poof. It was gone and so was my son's hope.

Well, I went on Carbonite – that handy new backup that I use and guess what — I FOUND IT. I found it, restored it and had it back within 5 minutes after I had searched on the hard drive for the better part of an hour.

We talk about backup all the time, but do we really HAVE a good backup plan?  I've had backup on a hard drive, but I'll tell you – a system that automatically backs up even the temporary profile before Windows ejects it into Cyberspace is something I just have to love.

So, yes, I'm talking about it and no, they don't pay me.  I know there are other backups – Mozy and Sugar Sync get talked about a lot.  But for me, now, Carbonite – You've made my (and my son's) night.

  1. YOU are his hero! What a great thing. I have fried two external HD this past month. Not sure what is happening there. Maybe I should look at virtual as my backup backup!
