Download all of your files
Your backed up files are safe, and it's easy to get them back. If you're on a new or repaired computer, sign into your Carbonite account at https:/account.carbonite.com and click Get files back for the backup you wish to restore.
After you run the setup file, the Carbonite application will walk you through the full restore process.

- Restoring individual files or folders - Are you at your computer with Carbonite installed? This walks you through how to get any backed up files or folders using the installed Carbonite software.
- Restoring files through your account - Not at your computer and still need a file? No problem! This walks you through how to log into your account and download files or folders using the Carbonite web interface.
Import your restored files
Once you've finished restoring, most of your restored files will be ready to use right away. However, you may be using software that requires an import process before you can access your restored data again (i.e. Outlook, Quicken, Quickbooks, etc.).
