IDrive – Your Data is Stored Forever!

June 25, 2018

A lot of times, you must have seen your devices filled with data which are not used from a long time, but you cannot delete them, since you have no clue when you would need it! These are situations when you need to remove the data from your device and protect it in an offsite location for use, if required. This is known as data archiving and is a good option in cases when your data is not actively used, but is still important. Archiving allows you to store data offsite for availability, so you can delete the data from your device and free up your local space.

IDrive's True Archiving feature helps you to store your files in our cloud for as long as you want. With IDrive, even if you accidentally or intentionally remove a file from your computer, it will always remain on the cloud. This means, you'll always have access to your files unless you manually delete it with Archive Cleanup option.

This feature best suits people who have bulk digital files and need a space to store them with high safety. IDrive ensures that everything once sent to the cloud is safeguarded as long as your account is active!

What is Archive Cleanup?
Archive cleanup is an option on your IDrive application, with which you can delete files from your cloud account. It compares the files of your cloud account to the ones existing on your system and added to the backup set. It then deletes the ones present in the cloud and not on your system. This feature helps you to free up space in your cloud backup account.
