    "I was in need of a software backup system for my home network, and gave Carbonite a quick look due to their reputation as a leader in the cloud backup industry. I was unable to actually try out their service as they do not currently support Linux operating systems. This was unfortunate as I was looking forward to testing out their quality, but I managed to find a solution elsewhere at around a quarter of the price. "

    "A very expensive option when you can do all this yourself with free software and personal knowledge of computers. There are many free partition software out there, many ways to back up your data, and none of it costs a cent. This is not necessary, unless you really don't know anything about computers, in which case, i'd say learn about computers. Its better in the long run."
