Default Carbonite Cloud Storage - Warning

I don't want anyone else to have to go through what I've been going through for a month now.

I use Carbonite to back up to the cloud, they claim unlimited storage and photo back up. HOWEVER, Carbonite finally admitted to me that they cannot efficiently handle RAW files because of their size. Even though Carbonite told me that my back up was complete, it was not. My external drive crashed and 25,000 of my 250,000 files have been lost because they were still awaiting back up (some for two years apparently). If you are currently using Carbonite...please rethink it.

The tech I'm working with told me that she's only seen it happen one other another photographer.

Save yourself some heartache and find another way to back up.
