IDrive’s free Cloud Backup – Your data is always secure

November 27, 2020

The need for cloud backup is very critical today. Imagine that your data is accidentally deleted from your devices or the system crashed – but you had not backed up the data in a long time– and you want to recover the lost data. There is very little or no chance to find the data but if your data was backed up to the cloud, you can be sure about accessing and recovering it easily.

Backup solutions have boomed in the market during the last decade with its many offerings. The service has become more acceptable by businesses because they are affordable and simple to use. But there’s a lot of other factors – security, affordability, ease of use – to consider when choosing a backup solution.

What other benefits does IDrive offer?

  • Robust protection - You can backup data from multiple PCs, Macs, Linuxes, iPhones, iPads and Android devices into a single account. Unlike other cloud services that charge per computer or device, IDrive securely protects data from any number of devices into one cloud account, for one low fee.
  • Save data locally and on cloud - You can store your files locally and to the cloud. Local backup feature is a perfect complement to the cloud backup solution which enables you to locally store your important files that are on the cloud. Local storage helps in faster recovery of your data when compared to online restores.
  • Multiple file versions - All the files backed up previously to your cloud account can be retained. You can restore 30 previous file versions to any location on your local computer. The additional storage for the previous versions has no impact on your account's quota, as your storage is calculated only for the most current version.
  • Securely share files - You can transfer all your data to your cloud account and then safely share files. With edit permissions, your recipients can access your files, make changes and upload them back to the account. You can share files from your computer, mobile device or via the web.
