BOSTON, July 8, 2013

BOSTON, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --The logistics of working remotely can be
a literal pain in the neck. The American Chiropractic Association advises
people against carrying bags that weigh more than 10 percent of their body
weight*. But the laptops, mobile devices, water bottles and umbrellas that are
toted from home to the office quickly add up, causing back, shoulder and neck
pain. Carbonite – the official sponsor of Summer Fridays – is easing the upper
body tension and lightening the load of the working professional with the
Ultra Summer Office contest.

During the month of July, people can visit the Carbonite Facebook page and
enter to win an ultrabook courtesy of Staples, plus three years of Carbonite
cloud backup by casting their vote for which spot is their "Ultra Summer
Office": the pool, an outdoor café, or the backyard. The new ultrabook,
combined with the new Carbonite Currents app, will allow the winner to leave
their heavy laptop at home, but still have access to their most recent files.

Currents is a free file syncing, sharing and collaboration application
available for Mac, PC, iOS and Android devices that works as a recent files
list across all of your devices. Any new or changed files from the last 30
days are available in your Currents list, whether you're on your desktop
computer, typing on a laptop poolside, or using your tablet or smartphone to
access files on the go. Any changes you make to a file are synced back to its
original location.

Currents also helps small groups keep track of shared documents with its
sharing and commenting features. Now, all members of the group have the most
recent version of a file, taking away the stress of digging through emails and
comparing two versions of a document side by side to see changes. And if
you're reviewing changes from a coworker but don't like the edits, you can
easily revert back to the previous version and leave a comment on the document
explaining why their changes were not added, all from the app.

Love the idea of accessing your files remotely with Currents but your office
doesn't have Summer Fridays? Carbonite Cloud Libs will generate a letter to
your boss explaining how easy it is to work remotely with Carbonite's cloud
solutions—whether you're out on a sales call or lounging on the back deck.

Find more tips on how to stay connected to your data when you're out and about
this summer on the Carbonite Facebook page and the Carbonite blog.
