Unlike Ken Jones I've used Carbonite successfully to restore files 3 times over the years. Never had any problem. I also back up on an external HD and use thumb drives for some sets of files. Everything is security encrypted too.

My back-up is currently in Google Drive.  Lol, I got caught with a virus and had to back up quickly, before wiping the drive clean and starting over! Haven't properly got myself set up yet, as I'm not really a technology nut....

The "cloud" is my primary backup.  I do CD/DVD backups at the end of the year and remove the stuff from the cloud then.

It is all really the same. I use Verizon cloud until it is full because of my phone, I pay for extra storage on Goggle but only the small package and I have a network drive full of hard drives on my home network so I have it the old fashioned way. Oh yes I have the free version of Box too.

External drive & it's driving me nuts. I don't like how the whole thing works. I was using Carbonite but stopped.

I really don't like how all these systems bog down your entire system. Very frustrating.
