For the second year in a row, IDrive is PCMag’s choice for the best online backup solution. That’s not only good for us. It’s good for our users. It means we continue to provide the securest, most cost-effective and user-friendly backup solution out there.
So by what criteria did PCMag judge all the leading backup services? They considered many aspects, including functionality, performance, web clients, mobile clients, and extra features. We’re pleased to announce that IDrive’s continued excellence in each category earned us the top ranking all over again.
Here are some highlights from Michael Muchmore’s review.
Remote Data Management for All Your Devices
“IDrive has one of the more capable Web clients you’ll find among online backup providers. When you log into your account on IDrive’s website, you see something that reflects the service’s multiple-PC protection: a button for downloading the software to the present computer, since you can back it up, too, at no extra charge.”
That’s right. We not only enable you to remotely manage your data from any device via web browser, we let you backup any number of devices at no additional fee. It’s one of the reasons IDrive is the most affordable leading backup solution.
“IDrive archives all backed-up files, meaning if you delete them from the PC drive, you’ll still have a copy online—forever. This can be a lifesaver if you need a file back that you deleted locally.”
There’s nothing worse than losing your data to a crash, besides losing your data because you deleted it. Luckily, we built in a fail-safe archiving function. If you realize you actually need that file you thought was just dead weight, restore and relax. We’ve got you covered.
An Eye-Catching Interface
“Installation of the PC software is clear, quick, and standard. The interface is also really good-looking….”
We’re trying not to blush.
“IDrive has no shortage of extra goodies…with its syncing, sharing, and media playing.”
In the backup world, the more you can backup, the securer your digital lifestyle will be. That’s why we offer:
- Facebook and Instagram backup – Backup all your Facebook and Instagram photos, from any number of profiles, into a single secure account.
- IDrive Express – Backup large amounts of data within 7 days via shipment of a temporary drive. Give your bandwidth a break.
- IDrive Wi-Fi – Enjoy speedy local backups and restores from this compact 1 or 2 TB wireless device.
“IDrive does just about everything you need an online backup service to do—and more. With continual backup, folder syncing, file sharing, archiving, File Explorer integration, strong mobile apps, and an unlimited number of devices per account, it’s hard to believe the service costs less than most of the competition.”
We’re flattered! From pioneering hybrid backup with our IDrive Wi-Fi device to offering private key encryption, IDrive always strives to meet its customers growing requirements with the latest innovations in cloud backup technology. We’re honored to receive this acknowledgment of our team’s efforts.
