With the huge load of personal data we save on our computers, most of us are seriously looking for an easy, effective way to transfer our data to the cloud. In fact, a simple Google search will overwhelm you with the number of people actively looking out for a reliable and easy online data protection service. Online data protection services have become the core protection strategy in the Internet world for individuals and businesses that have chunks of data to be stored and protected. The popularity of this process stems from its affordability linked with storing data off-site, easy to use and trusted disaster recovery plan.
Now, the shocking news is that, people who have set up an online cloud account still lose data in an event of a disaster. Why? Because they didn't protected their files! One of the most common reasons most users fail to back up their files is that they need to manually transfer their data.
If your scheduled data transfer fails without your knowledge, you can get notified for the same. All you need is to tick the ‘alert me if the schedule backup fails’ from 'Preferences' to any number of days you want and get notified accordingly.
You can select the 'notify always' option to stay updated on all that's happening with your scheduled data transfer, or just select 'notify on failure' for failure notifications only. The 'notify me on desktop' allows you to view the status of your scheduled jobs on your desktop screen.
The Desktop Report displays the entire status of all scheduled data transfers for your account.
You can also go to the Command Log option, where you see a list of all operations like Upload, Download, Rename, Delete etc., performed in your account with the desktop application, web interface or the IDrive APIs.
Managing your data transfers has never been easier. With just an active internet connection, you can modify the data transfer schedule of your computers remotely. Go to the 'Schedule' bar, put in the parameters for data transfer, like time, date, frequency, and notification type, and then click 'Update Scheduler'.
You can set the Internet bandwidth to be used for your scheduled data transfers when your PC is in use and when it's not. By default it is set to 25% when your PC is in use and 100% when it's not in use.
