Protecting your entire hard disk is essential as it helps you resurrect lost files and folders in case of a disaster. Your computer can crash anytime due to disasters from external sources such as, bad power supply, malicious attack, damaged block and sectors, and so on.
It's unfortunate that nobody really cares to safeguard their data until they are lost. So anytime a disaster strikes, you either lose your data forever, or struggle in getting those recovered from failed hard disk, by spending a handsome amount to external vendors. Don't you think these extra expenses and havocs can be avoided if data protection is properly strategized? Yes, you can!
A good storage strategy is all that you need to safeguard your files and folders from data losses. A normal data protection solution can help you protect all your files and folders present on the disk. However, protecting your system settings and the programs installed on your disk is impossible with such services. That's when other methods like disk imaging come into picture, with which you can create an exact record of your drive or partition.
Disk image backs up an entire drive with ease by creating a complete copy of the original drive, in terms of data and information structure. In other words, disk image is simply a duplicate of your entire disk created by copying operating system files, settings, programs, files and folders; retaining complete contents and information structure. If a disk image is created for your drive and the drive crashes, you can recover your disk by installing a new internal hard drive and then booting from your program's emergency boot device, and restoring the drive's contents from the disk image that is saved.
There are numerous third party vendors who provide disk imaging services for disk duplication. However, you need not recover your entire disk while a file or two is lost. So it is advisable to have both, cloud solution for easy restoration of one or two lost files and subsequently have disk image for complete hard disk recovery in event of major disaster. IDrive's online cloud solution has disk image feature integrated to it, which makes data protection more efficient than ever!
That means, Cloud Solution + Disk Imaging = Effective Data Protection
All your data, transferred to your cloud account, are protected with 256-bit AES encryption with an optional private key. This is a unique key that is not stored anywhere in IDrive's servers; which means no one but you will have access to your files.
You can protect all your devices like PCs, Macs, Servers, Android, and iOS devices to your single cloud account, at one price. While most other cloud services charge per device, IDrive protects multiple devices, as long as there is enough storage space on your cloud account.
You can create unlimited Sub-accounts, within your storage space and monitor them using a centralized administrative console. The console gives you the overview of all your Sub-accounts at a glance! Here, you can allocate space, monitor activities and view storage reports without having access to any of your Sub-account user's files. This ensures privacy of your data!
Hybrid feature is a perfect data protection strategy. You can locally store your important files to IDrive Wi-Fi - a storage device that combines the security of cloud and the convenience of local connectivity. Your data is encrypted and stored locally (IDrive Wi-Fi) and on cloud. Local storage helps speedy recovery of your data when compared to cloud!
