What do you dislike?

Sometimes it can be slow but I think it is due to the internet connection that each user has.

"Storage of my documents in the cloud with an easy search."

What do you like best?

I work in the area of ​​education I have approximately five student rooms where I elaborate curriculum, evaluations, note control, etc., Idrive serves as a complement to store all my information in one place avoiding the loss of information.

What do you dislike?

The only negative thing for me was the download which lasted a few minutes and did not have the waiting time so I had to leave it in the hands of a colleague who helped me download it while attending classes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend the use of this application for the protection of the documents that are made in order to have them at hand in case of needing them again or to prevent them from being deleted in any situation. Here we can count on a backup which is very important have any problem that may occur with the team, to take the documents of my students as well as evaluations, class topics and even books in perfect order.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows us to archive a large amount of information and at the same time provides protection in case of loss that often happens to us, especially in times when the equations are unexpectedly turned off or the emails are deleted, we can locate our documents in the cloud having access to them at any time without limits.

"Perfect Online Cloud Backup Tool"

What do you like best?

iDrive is one of the finest Cloud Backup tool that can backup our all smart devices like PCs, Macs, iPhones and all Android devices. It gives the highest level of data security available in the web right now. We can easily backup multiple devices to one iDrive account and sync instantly to access the files everywhere.

What do you dislike?

The one thing I dislike about iDrive is it gives only 5GB of space for free. I think they should hive atleast 10GB to users and it helps them to know more about iDrive and its capabilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You can see some alternatives like Backblaze or CrashPlan to iDrive. But I feel iDrive is better because it is easy to use and offers some flexible plans. I believe iDrive is the best complete data back tool available on the web.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A complete data backup is a must have for all business users. iDrive helps us to back up our entire PC Data to the cloud. It's something better than Dropbox or Google Drive.

"great backup software"

What do you like best?

easy to setup and it automatically select most common folders, like documents, Desktop, pictures, etc.

you can set the encryption to keep your files safe, which is what we were looking for our business.

we also wanted to be able to centrally manage the accounts so that if we had to do a restore we would be able to.

What do you dislike?

Our only problem with it being in the healthcare field was that they did not want to sign a BAA that we could agree upon. They have a standard one they use, but our legal department was not happy with it. After back and forth we were forced to use their BAA. Right now we are not using it for people who would have access to PHI

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had user have their laptops die and loose all their work because they were not using the old tools we had for them. They would have to manually setup a backup. We wanted something automated, that we setup on a machine and it just works in the baclground. This was very usefull for upper management who don't want to deal with all the tech stuff.

"Why I cancelled my intro order for iDrive less than one week after I purchased it"

What do you like best?

I was interested in the product because of the new cloud backup feature.

However, there were so many defects in the product that any advantages did not matter.

My relationship with iDrive ended with a request for a refund for my order and assistance completely uninstalling iDrive.

What do you dislike?

Many things

1. There was a download for the product, but Microsoft Store had another version which was different.

2. Somehow the product picked up and left installed erroneous registry entries, linking to an old account, and it was impossible to unlink the product from that old account.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Fix the installation so it does not pickup previous install information.

Take a look at Acronis True Image backup to see what a really excellent product looks like, and emulate that.

Get back to me when you are done with my above recommendations

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am currently using another product, Acronis True Image, for online backups. I like the product a lot but it has had intermittent problems. I was hoping to try out the new IDrive online backup to see it it was competitive. The result, unfortunately, was that the Acronis product is far superior to iDrive.

For my work I handle important information, as well as confidential documents, which for no reason I can lose, so I use this application as a backup, which allows me to protect the information of any inconvenience that my team may present and perform a quick search at any time without limit of time, it is easy to use and apply, being able to locate a document among thousands.

What do you dislike?

Is a quite easy application to use perhaps the download may last a few minutes as it was my case what made me despair a little, it is a way to protect the documents and information that I use and download on my computer keeping my information securely.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

"A hard drive in the cloud! "

What do you like best?

iDrive is a provider of storage in the cloud for any device, what I like most about it is that it is really complete since I can access my backup copies from any device, it is compatible with linux, it allows me to share files from a very simple way pressing right button, selecting the option to share, set or not a password and give privileges to download files or just see them and if you want can be shared by twitter, facebook, etc and the best thing is that I should not worry anymore that also allows me to backup my database protecting my websites.

What do you dislike?

It does not offer unlimited storage but I think that makes it unique since that way it provides opportunities for everyone adapting to real needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have very confidential documents that require extreme security, there is no need to worry because iDrive allows us to establish our own encryption key, but in doing so we greatly limit all the file sharing features that IDrive offers so if you want to take advantage of it 100% let them establish your password.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With iDrive I keep my files highly backed and saved no matter if we have mistakenly deleted something while working or if a machine has been damaged because we have everything saved in the cloud and extremely safe is really efficient for both my work and me personally .

"IDrive does all the work for you."

What do you like best?

Once you schedule your backups, you will never have to do another thing to IDrive unless you have a computer issue.

What do you dislike?

Initially I was a little confused on where I was backing up to and what was being backed up. This may have been my fault because once I figured it out it made total sense.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

IDrive backs up 2 drives that are essential to the daily business of our company. If something were to happen to them we would need to restore the backups ASAP and this is what they offer.

"Great backup software let's you sleep at night knowing your data is fully backed up."

What do you like best?

Simple report every morning letting me know it "did it's thing" (backed up all my new and updated files) during the night. If it wasn't for that I'd always wonder: "did it really happen" or is my data vulnerable if something should happen to my laptop. Love that secure feeling of knowing.

What do you dislike?

Nothing I can think of. Billed once a year with an annual renewal notice and nightly backups with confirm - what's there not to like?

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use the free trial and see how easy it is and the detailed report you get nightly. Can't be much simpler.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making sure 70 hours of work a week for multiple companies, projects, and ideas is safely backed up in the cloud.

"A good affordable back up solution "

What do you like best?

I drive gives you 2tb of storage for around $53 per year, or free 5gb. They also give you the option of sending a physical drive to do a hard back up, and send back in so they can upload your initial full back up at no additional cost.

What do you dislike?

The software is a little dated. The interface is complex for basic user to recover files if needed. The support is very lacking. The techs I have talked to were relatively rude, and I had to wait a whole day for a response.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This solves the concern of onsite data loss. The companies I deal with now do not have to worry about losing data.

I like that I can download this on every computer in the office, wether it’s the creative teams macs or the dev’s linux machines. The Dashboard is very functional and clean.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure other programs don’t fit your needs. Although this service is great, there are more affordable options that just don’t look as clean
