New online back up tool

Last night I downloaded a new tool called “Carbonite” at home.

It backs up your files from your PC to their servers over your broadband connection. There’s a 15 day free trial, after that it’s $5 a month, as far as I can tell there’s no limit to the amount of data you can back up. Compared to buying an external hard drive this is pretty cheap (so the wife’s happy) and I can stop worrying about the hard disk dying on my flaky old desktop PC and me loosing all my digital photos and music
