How Does Expiration Affect Your Carbonite Backup

Carbonite subscriptions are purchased for a specific time frame from one to thre years. When you approach your expiration date, we will remind you that your subscription will soon expire to alert you that you will have to renew to continue coverage. If you have purchased a subscription and signed up for automatic renewal, then Carbonite will only warn you if we find something wrong with the upcoming renewal.

If you do not renew your paid subscription, our current policy is to keep your data for up to 30 days after the expiration of your paid subscription, allowing you time to change your mind. However, after expiration, your subscription must be renewed if you wish to recover your data. After 30 days, we remove the backed up data associated with your subscription and it will no longer be available for restore. You can view your expiration or renewal date through your account.
