Going on vacation? Leave your computer behind

July 17, 2018

Vacation is obviously all about getting away from the day-to-day grind. For many, that means turning on the Out of Office message, unplugging the laptop, and taking the time to just relax. Ideally, you can leave your computer behind and just enjoy the free time. But, there’s always that off chance you’ll need access to files while you are on vacation. So, the laptop comes along for the ride—a clunky, electronic reminder that you’ll be back to reality before you know it. 

With Carbonite’s Anytime Anywhere Access you can leave your laptop at home with confidence, because you can access your files from any Internet-connected device, including your smartphone. Simply login to your Carbonite account and click View Files to browse the full contents of your backup. Carbonite Safe Backup maintains the folder structure on your laptop, so finding what you need is quick and easy. Additionally, if you don’t remember where you saved a file, backups are searchable by file name and type.

Anytime Anywhere Access allows you to download single files, folders, or multiple files and folders simultaneously—up to 200 individual selections per download. Simply select the files and folders you need and click Download. Multiple files or folders will be compressed into a .zip file for rapid download. Accessing files does not remove them from your backup. So, your data is always safe.
