Leo - went with your advice and subscribed to Carbonite a year. It is not a product I would recommend, here's why: After 200GB it stops backing up and throttles down the bandwidth to a point where backups do not occur. If your hard drive is greater than 200Gb (most PCs these days and certainly my iMac, ship with 1TB drives. When I was to sell it last week, I discovered the Carbonite backup was useless. I had to take the ol USB drive and do a traditional backup. Not recommended. Only options is to upgrade to small business, which is a much more expensive service.
