Not For MAC Users!
One Star is too much for Mac users. They had an upgrade which made my Intel Mac very sluggish and non responsive. I brought my computer to my local technicians who determined it was Carbonite. After many phone calls and emails Carbonite said they could not fix the problem and that I should just delete their program. My out of pocket expense was $550. Their response was, why did you bring it to a repair shop without authorization. They are a very poorly run company. Would not recommend trusting them with your data.
Laggy, Slows Down Computer, Horrible Backup Speed
I switched to Carbonite over a year ago. That was a mistake! The backup speed is very slow after you reach the first 50GB. The system often hangs, and customer service is absolutely horrible.
