Can anyone tell be if there is an alternative to carbonite for ubuntu.

I love the idea of carbonite's "unlimited" automatic backup, can anyone help


  • I've never used Carbonite. But have you looked into Deja Dup? Which allows you to backup the files to Rackspace Files, a separate partition, disk drive, or even to Amazon Cloud? – Alan May 20 '11 at 17:55

Both Spideroak and Crashplan have a linux clients.

    For anyone visiting now: I got great experience with Crashplan, however, they are going to shutdown their products for home users. – Lode Aug 27 '17 at 19:26
  • Disappointing that Crashplan recommends Carbonite which does not support Linux at this time crashplan.com/en-us/consumer/nextsteps – pzrq Dec 1 '17 at 12:34

Thanks to @daithib8, I agree with and have chosen SpiderOak personally.

For additional supporting evidence from Leo Laporte and Steve Gibson, please see Security Now Episode 349 video or transcript.
