Initially designed for photo storage, Carbonite is an online backup solution that provides completely unlimited storage for various types of files. After downloading Carbonite software, users can choose a nickname for the specific computer for online backup. Files can either be manually selected or using Carbonite's preset for files to be automatically selected. Once connected to the Internet, backups also can be scheduled and automatic backups initiated for any changes made to an existing file or an addition of new files.

There are some strings attached. While many other services offer syncing for a number of devices, Carbonite's service starts at $59 per year per computer for unlimited cloud storage capacity and backups. Carbonite can be downloaded for Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Windows.
