Storage solution provider LaCie and online backup company Carbonite have teamed up to offer the LaCie One Year Online Backup, a free one-year unlimited online storage service to buyers of LaCie hard drives.

For one year following software installation Carbonite will automatically backup the LaCie drive by finding new and modified files, encrypting them twice before leaving the original workstation, then transmitting them by HTTPS (SSL) to a secure data center, where the information remains encrypted, protecting the user’s privacy. LaCie said backups are completed only when the computer is idle, so the process never interferes with computer performance.

The free online storage, a $50 value, also gives users the chance to try the Carbonite service.
