Archiving made effortless with IDrive’s True Archiving

December 12, 2018

Currently, an increasing number of businesses are required to store their data for long-term in order to comply with the legal mandates of regulatory agencies and/or to satisfy the assessment of stakeholders and funding agencies. As it is important for archives to be accessible as and when needed, most businesses deal with archiving and data backup separately. However, by subscribing to IDrive cloud backup you can effortlessly cover your bases for archiving at zero additional costs!

IDrive online backup retains all the data you backup, including the files and folders that no longer exist on your backed up computers and mobiles. You can retrieve this data anytime you want. True Archiving not only stores your data but also enables you to recover more easily from hardware failures, virus attacks, or natural disasters.

If you no longer need the archives, you can delete the data manually from your cloud backup or perform an Archive Cleanup and match the cloud data with the current data in your devices.
