Ask a Carbonista: How Do I Upgrade My Subscription?

by Lynnette Nolan | Jan 17, 2013

No matter what plan you’re on, the best experience comes when you’re running on the most up-to-date version of Carbonite.

As a Windows user, you can view your current version – and upgrade to the latest version if it’s not already running – through the Carbonite InfoCenter. We like things simple and automatic, so once you’re in the InfoCenter, Carbonite automatically checks to see if an update is available for your computer. If there’s a new version, you’ll receive a pop-up letting you know.

In addition to Carbonite's automatic check, you can also look for yourself at any time by clicking check for updates in the InfoCenter.

If you’re running a version prior to 5.0, or if you’re running Carbonite on a Mac, you can upgrade to the latest version by logging into your account and reinstalling the software.

When you've got the latest version of the better backup plan, you’re making the best of your backup!
