Thank you very much - I'm going to try this!

My big problem has been my photos and music. In total there's just under 150gb of content. I moved them out to a NetGear ReadyNAS which provided RAID protected centralized access - BUT I haven't found a good backup solution.

Carbonite works fine for a local backup of my computers - but it won't backup any NAS drives.

Install the apt-get and EnableRootSSH extensions to the readynas. Then install the devio debian package using apt-get. Use the devio utility to export your disks to your machine running Carbonite. On that machine, use Imdisk to mount the exported disk. Imdisk works a bit differently than a network share, so it should be invisible to the Carbonite service. Carbonite should see the drive as a local machine drive. See if you can now add the files on the newly mounted disk to your Carbonite backup schedule.

Thank you
