I love Carbonite! I had a fire in my motherboard and was able to restore all my files consisting of thousands of photos and Scrap Girls files in less than a day. I also use Carbonite to back up my work files. An additional benefit of Carbonite is that I can access my work files from home on those occasions I have to work on the weekends. I also have a EHD as an additional backup for everything.
I make an annual book of layouts featuring our family, friends, pets and travels. I have used Blurb for 4 annual books and have been very happy with the end product. I like that Blurb allows 440 pages in a book, which is really nice when I have lots of layouts of our trips during the course of a year. To make sure I don't lose anything important to the trimming process, I put a ruler line 3/8 inches from the edges.
It worked!!!! I think I was missing a few steps in the loading process. I've played with it quite a bit now and wrote myself detailed instructions so I can make it work next time I decide to use the action. Thanks so much for all your help!
