Most homeschoolers don’t have the time or energy to back up all their data like that, but disasters can happen.  A single computer virus, a major computer crash, or a household disaster or theft can destroy all the hard work you put into making your transcript.

There are four ways Carbonite can save your bacon!

1. Never Lose Your Mind

I have multiple redundancies for my computer because I use it for business. External hard drives and remote back-up systems like Carbonite Online Backup serve a great purpose. Most homeschoolers don’t have the time or energy to back up all their data like that, but disasters can happen. A single computer virus, a major computer crash, or a household disaster or theft can destroy all the hard work you put into making your transcript.

2. Save School Work

Backing up your computer is a great strategy for saving your teenager’s’ written reports as well. Each time they complete a paper, they can save it on the computer and know it is safe. Saving those emails will make sure you always have samples of work to give to any college that wants to see a sample.

3. Save Homeschool Records Forever

You don't have to save your curriculum forever, and you don't have to save all your child's daily work, notebooks, or papers. But you do need to save the official homeschool records forever. Online backup system like Carbonite help you keep your records safe and secure but also easy to replace if you need it.​ Read 6 Ways to Save Homeschool Records Forever

4. Expect the Unexpected

Life is funny, and strange, and unexpected things can happen. Even if you don't plan on needing a transcript right now, you may still need one later on. Be ready. Rosie's son was applying for a job in the Far East. Even though he hadn't needed his transcript for all these years, suddenly he did. And it was mom's job to provide him with a transcript.

Try Carbonite Online Backup.

Carbonite Home is very reasonably priced and very easy to use. I use it. I love it. It's saved my bacon 4 or 5 times in the past decade.

Don't lose your mind! Save your transcript. Keep it on your computer, and keep a hard copy and a computer file in your safe deposit box as well. Your homemade transcript with mommy grades and kitchen credits is an important, official document. Make sure you save it!
