  • Says $52.12 for me?

  • Link doesn't work for me.

  • Just go to the iDrive site, this price is always available for new signups.

  • Ive been using this for about 3 months and got the same deal.
    On Windows, the client is very good, you can schedule backups to start and stop by a certain time and only email on errors.

    I backup overnight and it maxes out my nbn upload speed (30mbps approx)

    Ive got 7 different pcs backing up at different locations under the one account.

    The android app can auto backup photos but i found it really slow compared to the desktop. it might be ok once it gets a full backup done and only needs incremental backups

  • I have just received the renewal invoice. So I have been using it for more than a year.
    3.5 of 5 TB in use, continuous backup of a data repository that changes anything from 0 to 10 GB on a daily base.
    Note that this is secondary backup, primary is nightly into rotated USB external drives using robocopy /mirror

    • That's a fair chunk of data. What are you backing up if you don't mind me asking?

    • Agree, it’s a great service.
      I backup my NAS as well as all our one drive and google drive accounts.

    • Wow… Robocopying /mirror… What happens if the client is attacked by a ransomware? Not the best solution ey.

      • rotating USB drives?

        • Not good enough for critical services that needs recent data not prev day.. lots of better solutions. This is outdated unreliable.

          • @id: @id, can you suggest/link to info on what you think is a good backup solution? I'm currently using Aomei Backupper on an external drive, and in addition Tresorit for just the documents folder. But that leaves photos, music etc quite vulnerable

  • tried and gave up, too slow, it could take decades to fill up 5T…

    • This is similar to "Why don't people just use Linux instead ofWindows? It's free, easy to setup and use!"

    • Please tell me that FTP is behind a VPN or you at least have fail2ban?

    • FTP but.

    • So basically your data are not encrypted, not firewalled and available via FTP? And I hope that your friends don't have kids :-)
      I use friend's houses for offline backup on bitlocked drive locked in a shockproof box, but I am bit paranoid re anything online.
      Also, working in IT security, I am bit alergic to words "full trust", especially in the same sentence as "no cost" :-D

  • Idrive sucks. Poor performance. Poor support. Going to leave as soon as my year is up

    • Lol.. your kidding right I moved to idrive 8 months ago to reduce my glacier bill and never looked back.

      I find it very fast, they even have clients for my very dated netgear readynas104.

      Windows backup client is great!!, only downside is no client side de-dupe.

    Do you work for the C.I.A.? Asking for a friend…
