BOSTON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --As Backup Day—a global movement
encouraging people to protect their digital files—approaches on March 31, a
study from Carbonite finds that 39 percent of Americans have not backed up
their files in over a year, if ever. Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading
provider of cloud backup solutions, reminds people to honor Backup Day by
protecting their most valuable files with online backup.

From photos of your child's first day of school to a presentation for
tomorrow's meeting, people store an enormous amount of precious data on their
devices. In fact, Carbonite found that people with music and movies on their
computers have spent an average of $406 on that content. However, people
rarely take the time to protect their files simply because they either don't
know where to start, or think the process is too daunting.

From hard drives and flash drives to syncing and storage, protecting your
files can be confusing, and, when you think about everything on your to-do
list, the whole process can also sound time consuming. For those who are
apprehensive of the process, online backup from Carbonite is an easy way to
ensure that all of their files are always protected, and plans start at just
$59 per year.

Carbonite automatically protects data in the cloud
Carbonite stores files safely off-site, is more reliable than external hard
drives and makes it easy to monitor the backup status of your files. The
software is 'set it and forget it --' automatically backing up whenever a
change or addition is made -- to free users from the hassle of remembering to
protect their important files and worrying if their data is safe.

In addition to providing automatic and secure backup protection, Carbonite
online backup also provides people with Anytime, Anywhere Access to their
backed up data, so that they can easily access view, download or share their
files from any computer, smartphone or other internet-connected device no
matter where they are.
