[log in to unmask]"> This is a little off topic, but I had a good experience with Carbonite the other day:
Do you know that sinking feeling you get after a major Photoshop boo-boo? Ughhh. I had accidentally flattened a big PS layers file (and Saved it, of course, and Closed it!) I uttered a string of expletives, but I had the idea that maybe I could go to my Carbonite, and find the same file, still in its full layered glory. There is a lag time between the time you save and the time that Carbonite updates. I found the file, restored it to my hard drive, and so the day was saved. To me, that single experience was worth the price of admission.
Carbonite and DropBox both have saved my bacon a number of times. Even tho Carbonite has a price tag attached, it is just a cost of doing business for me, and I find its versatility and ease of use great for my peace of mind. I got the DropBox Plus plan, and it also features 30 days of version recovery in case it's needed. It comes with 1TB of storage.
