The week after my daughter's first birthday I uploaded all of the picture of the party to my laptop. I shut down my laptop and went to make lunch. I came back later that afternoon while my daughter was napping to order prints and save the picture to my external hard drive. My laptop wouldn't start back up. I charged it and it still wouldn't start. I panicked! All of the pictures of my little girl's special day were gone! I didn't know what to do. I knew other people had taken pictures that night but not nearly as many as I had.
If I had had Carbonite on my computer that never would have happened. My pictures would have been backed up automatically. I never would have lost those memories. Not to mention all of the other files I had on my laptop. I had contact info for businesses I was doing reviews for and all of my to do lists on there.
