Downloading Your Carbonite Safe Files with Anytime Anywhere Access


You can sign into your Carbonite Safe account to download files from your backup with Anytime Anywhere Access. Carbonite organizes the files the same way they exist on your computer. However, it may take up to 24 hours for new or changed files to appear.

Anytime Anywhere Access is intended for small restores (10 GB or less). If you need to restore larger files, restore with the Carbonite app.
