“Carbonite is ending support for the Mirror Image feature on October 15, 2018. Starting October 16, 2017, Carbonite will remove the Mirror Image feature from Plus and Prime accounts on a rolling basis, upon renewal. Mirror Image will be removed from all remaining accounts on the end-of-support date of October 15, 2018. ”
This revelation from Carbonite and the recent one from CrashPlan have left me worried about the future of backup for small business and home users. To have all files stored only in the cloud to me is just foolish. If I have tons of family photos and videos or store a bunch of music on my computer that I am relying on online only backups to keep safe – my recovery time will be weeks instead of hours. This is just not acceptable to me and I have a feeling it would not be to other people either.
If you are using either Carbonite or CrashPlan for backup of your computer and the possibility of massive recovery times is unacceptable to you, then contact us for assistance.
