    The best alternative to backing up to AWS S3 Storage .. and I like its alternatives like GoodSync and Gs Richcopy 360

    Carbonite is garbage. Good thing you're smart enough to be here looking for ALTERNATIVES!

    Still reading? Ok; I've spend hundreds of dollars over the past couple of years only to find out that...

    1. My backups were sporadically failing for no reason
    2. This wasn't being reported to me
    3. When I did find out it was too late but I attempted to restore a few files. Turns out that you can only restore 1000 files at a time and you cannot restore by file mask (IE: the most critical files to be restored were the *.XLS Excel files.... had to weed them out of 1000 file restores.
    4. Technical "support" is useless and very slow to respond. I get the feeling like they are going through the motions (reading from the FAQ that I had read 5 times before contacting support) and nothing more.

    Garbage. Save your money and look elsewhere.

    No, Dropbox is good (for other purposes) but it isn't an alternative.

    Crashplan is no longer offering a plan for personal users. Even existing customers will have to transition to their business-level plan at $10/month per device. Their suggestion for home users is Carbonite which has no Linux support. Really disappointing.

    Carbonite has gotten much better over the years for remote access. They now offer web access from any browser, as well as apps for iPhone, Android and Blackberry. The fact that they still offer unlimited storage is also a large plus.

    They are a good online backup solution for those on Windows and Mac and relatively inexpensive.

    I don't think Carbonite is really comparable to DropBox. There's no way (unless they've changed recently) that you can access your files from anywhere except the original PC. That's why I switched from Carbonite to MozyHome a few years ago. I like being able to view my backed up files from any PC anywhere, via a browser.
