Carbonite is ending support for the Mirror Image feature on October 15, 2018.
If you are looking for an alternative Backup solution that can protect all of your programs, settings and files, Zinstall FullBack Pro is a good option to try.
Even better, FullBack Pro can restore your programs and files not just to the original computer, but to any other computer, even with different hardware and different Windows version. For example, you can restore a backup of a Dell Windows 7 32bit to an HP Windows 10 64bit, and still have your program files, apps, settings, profiles, emails, accounts, passwords, documents, pictures, music - just as before.
You can sign up for a free 30-day trial of Zinstall FullBack Pro on its product page here.
Here is a quick rundown of main differences between Carbonite and Zinstall FullBack Pro.
By default, Zinstall FullBack Pro uses your USB hard drive to store the backup. You can use the same drive that you've previously used for Mirror Image.
FullBack Pro does not store your backup on the cloud (although you can use it to backup to Dropbox and other cloud services, if you prefer).
Zinstall FullBack Pro can restore your stuff from backup not just to the same computer, but to a completely different make and model, and even to a different Windows. This means that you are free to get any brand or version as your replacement system, and can still restore to it.
FullBack Pro will even restore your programs and their settings, such as - for example - your Outlook with its profiles and emails, your Chrome with favorites, passwords and logins, your Quickbooks with its reports and data.
Zinstall FullBack Pro is made to be always-on, keeping your backup up to date and your data safe. You will not even feel it running, and it won't slow down your computer. By using local backup (USB drive), you will also cut down on backup times and internet use.
