Carbonite Won't Go Away

Running Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and installed Carbonite a while back to evaluate it. Went through a formal uninstall, but I've notice my iMAC seems to have been running sluggish lately. The console shows the following messages every 10 seconds and the Activity Monitor is pretty much pegged with network activity. Finder shows no references to Carbonite on my machine,

Any ideas?

I won't personally advise you to be going through your filesystem deleting things, because I don't know what is in there. However, it looks like there are some things remaining in Application Support that need to be zapped.

I just noticed the same problem on mine...

it's not that there are files in /Application Support/....

it's that there is something that thinks there are... no clue what or where though...

YMMV


I found in /Library/LaunchAgents/

com.carbonite.launchd.carbonitestatus.plist
com.carbonite.launchd.carbonitealerts.plist

I ran this in terminal:
(from that folder)

launchctl unload com.carbonite.launchd.carbonitestatus.plist
launchctl unload com.carbonite.launchd.carbonitealerts.plist

then deleted them... that seemed to do the trick...

Files to Backup Keep Going UP in Carbonite

I've had Carbonite for about 4 months now and ever since Snow Leopard, the system doesn't seem to want to back up. The parameters are the same...usually around 64GB to backup but the files to backup just seems to keep going up and up and up and never goes down.

It keeps saying 4.17GB and 50000+ files to backup. Sometimes it gets to a certain number and then goes back and forth between those two numbers for 24-48 hours then continues upward.

I left this on over the Thanksgiving holidays and didn't do anything with my computer except occasionally check email. The number never went down, but instead, climbed.

Somehow I think they are still having issues with this product. They wrote and had me make changes to my backup profile and reinstall Carbonite. I've done that twice and it hasn't made any difference.

carbonite deletion

Thanks this may have solved a very frustrating few months with the carbonite alert popping up intermittently.
