Carbonite Backup

We have a system where we manually backup our computer, my husband is the one who is responsible for doing the backup.  When our hard drive was damaged beyond repair and replaced we found out he didn't do such a good job of backing up the computer.  We lost 4 years of documents and photos.

With that said, we are looking into the Carbonite Backup System.  Does anyone use this?  If you do, what do like/dislike about the service?

Dan used it for a few months, he liked it.

I didn't renew when the time was up. That was his thing and when he died I decided to do away with the laptop so why renew.

Yes I did, but I was wondering what the ladies in this group think about it.

He uses a hard drive to back up photos and important documents in case something happens to the laptop

 oi don't get me started on back ups LOL... hubby backs all our stuff onto a main computer hard drive then that one is copied again onto another drive.  I also have several things saved to disks and thumb drives that are extra important and those are in a fire box soon to go to our bank in a safe deposit box.  phew... lol

What is carbonite backup?  is it to a 'cloud' server?

Is it something separate from the computer's hard drive?
