Online Backup Service
Posted 11 March 2013 - 10:35 AM
I've been using Carbonie for about 2 years now and all was dandy until I had to reinstall windows 7 after unsuccessful upgrade to win 8. The structure of my directories have changed after the reinstall so Carbonite started backup from scratch. It's been over 3 months and the full back up wasn't complete yet. Yesteday I decided to clean up the directories and move all my files into a simpler path. Guess what, Carbonite sees the files under a new path as new files so the back up started again from scratch.
I'm looking to switch to a another backup provider, someone who is quicker. I have a very good internet connection so speed on my end shouldn't be an issue.

The speed you restore at is different, usually higher (mine is 64KB/sec).
So basically, if you have a large number of files to upload it will take time. My initial backup took about a month. Remember everytime you move, change or rename a file or folder, it has to be uploaded again.
