"We have hundreds of thousands of users in a hundred and eleven countries now around the world. Carbonite is available in eleven languages. And anybody can try it for free. You don't need a credit card. You go to www.carbonite.com and take the free trial." Set up is simple....and once installed…your files are automatically backed up whenever your PC is connected to the Internet. What gets backed up?
"The only thing we don't back up is Windows itself, the operating system, and program files. Because if you restore those to a new computer, they wouldn't work." All of the files are encrypted for security. Carbonite is adding a Mac version…and a feature to give users access to their files from other PCs. There is competition….from Mozy.com…owned by EMC….and others. Bloomberg Boot Camp, I'm Fred Fishkin.
