Carbonite FAQ
Posted 10 years ago on 7/14/2010 and updated 9/10/2010
Take Away:

Our FAQ list primarily for our clients where we highlight the most important Carbonite questions.



Q. How fast is it?

A. 2 to 3 GB / 24 hours. That means 75GB could take up to 25 days, longer if you schedule pause breaks.

Q. How do I know the unlock key is activated?

A. When the Buy Now option on the tray icon is gone.

Q. How do I tell what version is installed?

A. The version and build are on the About dialog (select Status from tray app, then About).

Q. Will Carbonite backup my family videos automatically?

A. Mostly NO. It will backup some, but in general you need to review all your files to make sure they are being backed up. Checking at the folder level is NOT good enough. Also, you can specific files and add extensions to the default list.

Q. Can I reinstall Carbonite if I've uninstalled it?

A. Yes. Furthermore, Carbonite will remember all your data and settings because it is stored online. For example, all files that have NOT changed, will not be reuploaded. Only new files and newly modified files will be uploaded. Carbonite will also remember your settings such as file extensions you've added.

Q. Can I retrieve a file I've backed up while on the road? From another computer?

A. Yes. From Carbonite, "You can access files backed up with Carbonite from any computer in the world. Carbonite remote access makes your data accessible whether you're traveling on business or simply need to pull up an important document, photo, or other file that isn't stored on the computer you're using. All you need is your email address and Carbonite password. "
