What's the latest version?
We have two versions of our software available on Mac OS X. Each are regularly updated to ensure that they provide the best experience for you and addresses any potential issues that may arise in previous releases.
- The latest version of Carbonite 1.x is 1.1.18 build 614 (view release notes)
- The latest version of Carbontie 2.x is 2.5.4 build 5249 (view release notes)
- NOTE: Both versions of Carbonite for Mac support secure, automatic, and continuous cloud backup. The 1.x version is a pane within System Preferences; the 2.x version is a standalone App. Due to this difference, users are currently not able to transfer between versions 1.x and 2.x
