Keep Your Memories Safe with Carbonite #Carbonite4Me

This post was sponsored by Carbonite as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.

I love taking photos and videos of my family. Having those saved memories to enjoy on a whim is priceless. Losing those memories forever… not so much.


A couple of years ago our family was on a small vacation to celebrate my youngest’s 4th birthday. Since he is my last baby, this was an extra special time for me.  This birthday was kind of a graduation out of toddlerhood and into childhood moment.


We spent the day having a great time, all the while I snapped photos to share with family and friends later. When we got back to the room I did what I was always did. I copied my photos from the memory card to my hard drive and thought they were safe. It was habit for me because I always worried about accidentally deleting them.


Well, somehow those photos and videos did not get copied and they did get deleted. I was devastated and had a big enough tantrum that even my children were giving me the “we better leave mom alone, she’s lost it” look. Fortunately I had some tech savvy friends that were able to help me get most of my photos back from my memory card. That experience taught me an invaluable lesson… I needed a cloud backup.

After a little research I found Carbonite.  Carbonite offers personal and professional cloud backup products that will retroactively backup your computers once it has been installed. I don’t even have to think about it, my files are automatically uploaded and just there. If I were to accidentally delete a file from my desktop I know that I can find it on Carbonite.

Carbonite was so simple to install. No tech knowledge necessary. I signed up for my free trial, downloaded the file, clicked to install, chose which folders to upload from and it was all automatic. I love being able to access my files and photos from any internet connected computer or device.

  1. Over the summer my phone fell in the ocean during one of our beach days. It had so many great photos on it and I was devastated. Having something like Carbonite would have been a lifesaver.
