One or more administrators can be assigned to each Carbonite account. Admins can view and manage backups for the entire business using Carbonite’s intuitive dashboard. The dashboard allows administrators to create, deploy and manage backup policies for individuals, groups and departments. Admins can also control account details such as subscription information, security questions, password and billing.

Carbonite offers a variety of options for recovering lost data. You can choose to restore:

    • All computer files - restore all of your backed up files to a new or repaired computer
    • Individual computer files or folders - restore files and/or folders individually to your computer
    • Previous computer file versions - in case of accidental overwrite, bring back an older version of a file
    • Entire server(s) - with Image Backup and bare metal restore, you can recover the entire system in one pass, including operating systems, applications and settings
    • Databases and Applications - recover a specific database, like Exchange or SQL, without having to do a full server restore
    • Granular mailbox restore for Exchange and O365 - you don't have to restore an entire server if all you need is one user's mailbox

In addition, users can retrieve backed up computer files away from their computers. Anytime Anywhere Access allows you to log into your Carbonite account to view and download your backed up files from any internet-connected device.

Carbonite offers the Remote Deployment feature to allow backup admins to remotely install and configure Carbonite on multiple users’ workstations rather than manually installing it on each computer. They can then use Carbonite's web portal to remotely manage backup policies.
