Is Computer Backup on Your Back to School Checklist?

by Lynnette Nolan | Sep 01, 2011

It’s remarkable how technology has changed back to school shopping. A decade ago, the students began the school year with backpacks stocked with notebooks, pencils, and pens. Now back to school checklists include laptops, iPads, smartphones and other tech devices.

These days, most school work is done on a computer and it’s a classic nightmare for students and parents alike when a project or assignment is lost due to a computer crash.

This back to school season, we’re offering you the opportunity to win a full year subscription to Carbonite Online Backup. By automatically backing up your computer’s hard drive, all homework and coursework will be protected from hard drive failure or data loss – from the first day of school to summer break next year.

For your chance to win, all you need to do is follow @Carbonite on Twitter ( and re-tweet our contest tweet “Keep all your homework and coursework safe this school year with Carbonite Online Backup” to be automatically entered in our drawing.

This contest ends on September 7, 2011. Good luck!
