How Online Backup Works
Carbonite Online Backup installs a client software program on the user’s computer that operates continuously in the background. This client software automatically seeks out new and changed files on the user’s computer and backs them using block-level incremental backup. Each file is compressed and encrypted using a 448-bit Blowfish encryption before it is sent to remote servers on the Internet. Data is transmitted to the servers using a secure https link. The encrypted files are stored on 15-drive RAID6 storage arrays. The client software also provides de-duplication at the file level.
Carbonite is designed to automatically backup all user-generated content including text documents, spreadsheets, financial documents, photos, music, etc. Specifically, on a Windows PC, Carbonite backs up everything in the Documents and Settings folder, including the desktop, favorites, and all other files except for temporary and log files. Any file or folder can be added to the default backup. On Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, System 7, System 8 and Windows 10, systems the backup software integrates tightly with Windows, adding green dots to the file icons of any backed up file. Adding or removing files from the backup is done using the right mouse button and the Windows context menus. Carbonite has promised support for Windows 7 and 8 and expects general availability by the time Microsoft releases Windows 10.
For Intel-based Macs running OS 10.4 (Tiger), 10.5 (Leopard) and higher. Carbonite is controlled through the system preferences and using the control + click menu.
How Carbonite Protects You – Your computer is filled with irreplaceable files: emails, photos, music, business contacts and financials. Carbonite automatically and securely backs up the irreplaceable contents of your computer for one flat fee per year no matter how much stuff you need to back up.
A Small Program on Your Computer – Carbonite installs a small software program on your computer that works quietly in the background looking for new and changed files to back up. It looks and feels like part of your computer, and is integrated with your desktop, so there’s nothing new to learn.
Completely Secure – Carbonite takes data privacy and security very seriously. We encrypt your files twice before backing them up securely off-site, using the same encryption techniques that banks use. Files remain encrypted at our secure data centers, so only you can see them.
Everything is Automatic – When your computer is idle, Carbonite automatically backs up new and changed files. You don’t have to do anything! When you’re using your computer, Carbonite goes to sleep so it will never slow down your computer or Internet connection.
Get Your Files Back with a Few Clicks – With Carbonite, restoring files is quick and easy. If you accidentally delete or otherwise lose some of your files, it takes just a few clicks from your desktop to get them back. If your computer is damaged, stolen or “just dies” and you lose all your files, you can easily restore them to a new computer.
