Starting on October 15, 2008, any LaCie consumer storage product purchased will come with a full year of online file backup service with unlimited storage capacity. Powered by Carbonite, the LaCie backup setup installs software on your computer that automatically looks for new and changed files to back up. Once it gathers those files, it encrypts them twice before sending them to the offsite data center, where they stay encrypted, maintaining your privacy. The automated nature of this backup software is such that it will never slow down your computer since it backs up new and modified files only when your computer is idle. You don't need to do a thing beyond setup.
