Carbonite is an online storage provider that specializes in backup. Users install a small piece of software on their machine, which automatically syncs any new or changed files over a secured connection. In case of an emergency, you can simply use the software to get everything back, and because it's not localized to where your machine is, you can get that backup from wherever you have a connection.

Carbonite isn't a free service, but there's no limit on the size of your computer's backup, something which makes it more attractive as the speed of home Internet connections continues to rise.
