I like Carbonite but, unless this has changed in the last roughly six months, Carbonite doesn't support backing up external hard drives connected to your computer. For some people that doesn't matter but for some, it's a major drawback. Carbonite indicates in its FAQ that they are going to implement support for external drives but, at least about six months ago, this had not been done.

Carbonite is quite good for offsite backup as well. It's like $55 per year and you can backup as much as you want. Uses their own client to package up and transmit the data.----- Original Message ----- From: "Ch.B." <chr1s64@xxxxxx>To: <accesscomp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Monday, December 14, 2009 4:43 PM Subject: [accesscomp] Re: windows security issueI have 2 external drive at 500 gigs each that I just hook up thru usbport.And I just always put stuff back on my main computer that I am reallyusing, all else stays on those drives or on my other machines. --- Happy chanukah everyone!
