IDrive Express™ - A Data Shuttle Service

February 16, 2018

Imagine having a small business for which you need to download or upload large files via internet. That’s not an easy task to handle, as your system performance will badly be affected, due to high bandwidth usage. The same rule applies while backing up your data to your cloud account.

To overcome this challenge, IDrive came up with IDrive Express™ – a data shuttle service for protecting and restoring large amount of data using physical shipment of temporary storage devices. With no bandwidth utilization for initial transfer and restore, it turns out to be an attractive option for metered internet users.

How Does IDrive Express™ Service Work?
On your request, IDrive sends you a hard drive to which you can securely transfer all your data using IDrive's Local Backup and ship the device back to us. We will transfer your data from the device onto IDrive's primary storage devices. You can then proceed with incremental backups through the online backup process.

How to Retrieve Data with IDrive Express™
Once you request for the retrieval of data, the most recent version is taken from the IDrive servers and saved to a temporary storage device. It is then shipped to you.

All you need to do is plug the drive into your computer via the USB cable and restore your data to your system using the IDrive application. You must return the storage device that we send you after you restore your data.

Why IDrive Express Service?

  • Quick data transfer in a week or less
  • Encrypted data protection using 256-bit AES encryption
  • No bandwidth usage
  • High speed data storage and restore for server and database
