Running a remote office
Luckily for Doug, his wife's small office, located only a few towns away, never lost power and she opened it up to family and friends who needed a space to work or to recharge phones and laptops. “There were about six or seven small businesses running out of her little two-room office at one point,” Duncan says.
Due to space limitations and the hassle of packing up a desktop computer system and moving it back and forth, Duncan turned to Carbonite’s Anytime, Anywhere Access feature. He was able to access all of the business files on his desktop computer from a laptop.
“I created a folder on the laptop called ‘My Sandy Folder’ where I kept everything I downloaded from Carbonite,” says Duncan. “That way, I was able to keep up with my clients and even complete my billing. If I didn’t have Carbonite, I would be out of business.”
