IDrive cloud backup provides protection for your data

December 7, 2018

Cloud backup solutions have boomed in the market during the last decade due to their simplicity and affordability. These solutions let you save your data in an offsite location and as your data is stored on the cloud it is accessible from anywhere, anytime. But there's a lot that you must consider when choosing an online backup solution as your data matters most for your business!

Imagine that your data is deleted from your devices, but not backed up for long, and you want the lost data recovered. However, there is very little or no chance! But if your data was once backed up with IDrive, you can surely recover it. The 'True Archiving' feature from IDrive cloud backup ensures that your files sent to your cloud account, stays there as long as your account is active.

With IDrive online backup, even if you accidentally remove a file from your computer, it will always remain on the cloud. This means, unless you don't manually delete files or use the 'Archive Cleanup' process, you'll always have access to your files.

What is Archive Cleanup?
Archive Cleanup is a feature on your IDrive application, with which you can delete files from your cloud account. The 'Archive Cleanup' option, compares the files of your cloud account to the files stored in your current backed up set that you have chosen for protection, and then deletes the ones present in your cloud and not on your backup set. This feature is great to free up space in your online backup account.
