Carbonite Safe Backup Reviews & Product Details

Carbonite Safe Backup Overview

What is Carbonite Safe Backup?

Data backup is essential for protecting small businesses from ransomware attacks, human error, hardware failure and natural disasters. These events can lead to data loss and system downtime, which can be very costly for your business. Carbonite Safe® backup gives small businesses powerful cloud and hybrid backup that is affordable and easy to use. It takes just a few minutes to install this backup software on one or several machines with remote deployment and management. You can create custom policies and deploy remotely to individual machines, teams or departments. From there, automatic cloud backup ensures your data is recoverable in the event something happens to your business systems. You can also schedule backups around workflow and optimize bandwidth utilization to avoid bottlenecks. Optional onsite backup ensures the fastest possible recovery and reduces downtime.

What do you like best?

The set it and forget it way it works. Once I got everything set the way I wanted it, it just works in the background. It backs up everything I'm doing on a daily basis to the cloud server - I never have a problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Well, I do have one problem. At home, my internet access can be sketchy. I don't have a secondary location for carbonite to backup to. I suppose I could invest in an external hard drive and use that as well - but I haven't. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is an easy to use backup system for small business. I can't speak for anything larger than that, but I'm very happy with my experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have twice, lost my main computer in my home business. I was completely backed up and could just buy a new one and restore to it. I won't say it was seamless, because I had to really think about what belonged where and what I really needed back. Restoring is a very long process. Reducing what you restore makes sense.

What do you like best?

It actually works. The trouble with backups is you don't know it's really working until a crisis hits.

Restoring data is slow but very thorough and works in the background while you do other things. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. it's easy to use, reasonably priced, and actually works well. Love it. Used it for several years now on multiple machines at home and work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Information can be stored inevitably with a more exact setup. A serious time-saving software that one could dream for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It’s a need of the hour, but if taken its price it’s a bit expensive for small sellers. Thither is a free variation its quality is not compromised. However, the internet plays a major function in its working. If this application is not installed right then its wastage of time and money so be careful while uploading this application. A major thing that can be watched its keys to understand otherwise frequent backup can slow down the system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A big shootout to carbonate for building such a secured and diligent software for users. When it gets to me, I admit it extra strength for backing up the files and all-time availability of data to sync. My clients are satisfied and eventually, I’m happy to have it. The best cloud storage application that enhances my selling too and makes me able to see after my yield any time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Really convenient program where we have the most safe and beneficial data back.to hold our records. Mozy is truly safe and cheap to use. Regularly we can support that statement. The app is most guarded and I'm delighted to go through it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While the software that is offered is potent, I think they're smarter with the amount of storage they keep giving you also for interest you earn. Unquestionably I stopped using Mozy, as I wanted a better life. The attributes I had tried to trade for more room from mozy valued the money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

With the trial they are offering you ought to try this. I guess the most you can do now is check your settings with a preview, so that the initial cost doesn't take very long and afterwards run restored tests. You should consider it very fast to do Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We utilize Mozy for laptop and server backups. There are other advantages such as being able to easily attach apps, no wait, very quick to launch the program on the phone, you can install more devices right before arranging the consumer with 1 machine. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Carbonite is great and runs in the background making sure that all my data is securely backed up in case of an emergency. It is super easy to get started with Carbonite.

We will continue to use them as we grow as a company. We like that they have a number of options for different size businesses. As we grow, Carbonite will grow with us.

What do you dislike?

Since Mozy is a very useful and productive application, I personally found to have to no drawback except for one, that is mozy gives me only a limited use for storage, if only I had the full freedom of using space as much as I want, it would be awesome. Other than this, Mozy doesn’t seem to have any drawback and works quite well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
