When I got my new laptop, the first thing I signed up for was carbonite. I knew the importance of an online backup service. I wanted one installed in my laptop right away. I was not going to risk my files anymore. I wanted them to be automatically transferred to carbonite, I had heard about carbonite from my officemates, They had all heard about the great features of an online backup service with unlimited storage capacity. I thought it was something I also needed. It turned out, I was right. So when I got a new laptop, the first thing I did was sign up for carbonite.
