Hmm, some of your images aren’t showing up.. are you hotlinking?
What is missing here and what I really want to know is how much data an average person is backing up.
When “Carbonite” was mentioned, I honestly thought it was a joke answer. I didn’t think an actual online backup service was under that name. Are all of these online backup services free? I won’t go after the pay ones.
Whao now… Your survey results look skewed. Hey, I love me some Carbonite, but I’ve never seen a survey where they looked THIS good. Has there been that big a turnaround in the industry within the past week or so? If so, congratulations, Dave!
I am with your vote. After dell tech. sep. had to empty my comp., I asked , what shoude I do for back up? External hard drive,they recomen.
I was surprised not to see SOS included since it was rated so highly by PC World and several others. Carbonite was rated #2. What am I missing?
How about a follow up survey as to what factors led to their choice of backup? Its interesting to me that external hard drive is choice number 1. I used that for years when I had several machines around. Online is only 10% but overwhelming people picked Carbonite as their online choice. Now that I’m down to one primary machine, its my choice too.
Survey was a bit simplistic wasn’t it? I have 3 computers, just for myself. 6 back-up drives for daily/weekly and a Mozy and an I-Drive account for the most important folders. Plus 10 thumb drives (as they got bigger I just used bigger.. ). And, last year, where I live 100 people got damaged computers due to a lightning strike. Only me and one other person lost a minimal amount of data…
4,084 completed surveys
How many were surveyed? It is useless data unless the population is known.
