Signup For Carbonite And Get A $20 Amazon Gift Card

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

Update: Just 2 days remaining to signup for this offer!

Carbonite Offer Linky

Carbonite has a limited time offer running through 01/03/13 for a free $20 Amazon gift card if you sign up via my link above.  They’ll also give me a $20 Amazon gift card if you use my link above and I thank you in advance for your support as always.

I don’t need to tell you how critical it is to backup your data.  Trying to recover data from a damaged hard drive or solid state drive can cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars and is often not even possible. A friend of mine recently dropped their laptop and it cost them hundreds of dollars just to retrieve some pictures off of it and none of the pictures were in the original folders so that became another hassle to deal with.

A hard drive works with moving parts and has a limited life expectancy.  Eventually they do die.  Even if you backup data onto an external hard drive those can die as well (it’s happened to me already a couple times unfortunately) and to lose precious documents and pictures is never fun.

I’ve been using Carbonite for some time now and it works in the background of your computer to automatically backup your data remotely.  That way you don’t have to worry about something happening to your hard drive, or to your house for that matter, as you can remotely access your backed up data from anywhere.

A basic plan is $59/year, so effectively $39 for the first year with the $20 gift card you’ll receive.  You can start with a free 2 week trial with no credit card required, though you’ll only get the gift card once the paid subscription starts.

It’s already showing out of stock, but you can still order it! If you don’t see it try looking under “more buying options” and search for Amazon as the seller.

I strongly recommend Seagate portable drives over WD.  I’ve had multiple failures with WD drives and never had a problem since switching to Seagate.

SimpleTech 250GB Ultra-Portable 2.5″ External Hard Drive For $98.69 Shipped From Amazon!

Monday, May 19th, 2008

A quick note on 2.5″ external hard drives:
The dirty little secret about these hard drives is that while they are unbelievably convenient for traveling and the like, they are in my opinion inherently unstable.

Every WD 2.5″ external hard drive that I have used has broken on me and lost its data, and I’m generally very careful with my electronics. (My awesome 12.1″ Dell 700M laptop has “powered” this website since I started it in Brazil some 3.5 years ago and has traveled the world many times over without a hitch)

Since I switched from WD’s 2.5″ hard drives to SimpleTech’s 2.5″ hard drives I have yet to have a problem, however I am now always careful to have everything backed up onto a standard 3.5″ external hard drive…

Bottom line: Buy 2.5″ external hard drives for their portability and convenience, not for backing up critical data!

200GB 7,200 RPM SATA Drive From Dell Small Business

Want to boost the speed of your laptop?

The very best (and most underrated) method is to upgrade to a 7,200 RPM hard drive!

The difference between a 4,200/5,400 RPM hard drive and a 7,200 RPM hard drive is simply astounding.

Windows will boot up significantly faster, and programs will open without a lag!

It delivers far more “bang for the buck” than a RAM or processor upgrade.

This hard drive also includes a free fall sensor so your data will be protected against drops.

This is a Dell-branded hard drive manufactured by Seagate and it features an incredible 16MB of cache.

It is an industry-standard 2.5″ SATA hard drive that will work in nearly all modern notebooks, but be sure to confirm that your laptop uses a SATA hard drive! (Ignore the fact that it says it is for the Dell Inspiron 1521-in fact this will work just fine in any modern Dell notebook) You may need to remove the bracket adapter from your notebook’s current hard drive and put it on your new hard drive to fit it into your computer.
