Cloud and local backup for PC, Mac, phone and tablets
I’ve been looking for some time for an affordable cloud and local backup solution that works across multiple devices – and IDrive looks like the one.
I’ve installed it on my Windows PC, Mac Pro, Moto G7 android phone and iPad and will see how it goes – it’s looking good so far.
IDrive is a PC Pro Labs Winner:
This cloud service is good value and easy to use – and it can take care of your local backup needs too
For families seeking set-and-forget protection, it could be just the thing: it’s very easy to set up, supports multi-computer installations and come with enough storage to protect a whole household for a very reasonable price.
Multi-computer deployments are effortless to set up: simply install a second [or more] copy of the software on a Windows PC or Mac [or smartphone / tablet] and IDrive will create a separate archive within your cloud account for that device.
IDrive automatically stores up to 30 historical versions of modified files, and if you get low on cloud storage you can use the Archive Cleanup wizard to remove old files that are no longer on your local hard disk.
The $52 annual subscription [UK 50% off and other discounts can reduce this] gets you a roomy 5 TB of [cloud] storage in IDrive’s data centre.
What distinguishes the program is that it also – unlike most other cloud backup services – supports local destinations.PC Pro Jan 2021 p81 ‘Labs Backup Software’
