Carbonite launches remote access feature

Access your backup from any PC

Back-up service Carbonite is offering users a remote access function which allows them to access their archive from any PC that has an internet connection, even if the software is not installed.

According to the company, users simply log on to carbonite's website and choose the 'remote access' option. This allows them to download any of the files from their back-up securely.

"Remote access is a feature our users have been really keen for us to include," said David Friend, CEO of Carbonite.

"Our customers have always trusted us to safeguard their digital lives and keep them secure should their hard drive fail. We're now able to provide further insurance, allowing users access to their files anytime on from any PC with an internet connection"

Carbonite costs $54.95 (£39) per year. The remote access feature will be available to all Carbonite 2.3 and above users from March 16.
