We are bombarded every single day with news of our troubled economy; how our banking systems are collapsing, how auto makers are failing, how credit and insurance companies are hording money and barely staying solvent; how the housing market is crumbling and Americans are losing their homes; and so forth. It’s a dark time in our country’s history; one which all the analysts and experts say will get much worse before it gets better. Consumer spending is at a low-point as Americans are saving what money they can in hopes of trying to stay ahead of this financial disaster.

However, at the same time Americans are doing something they haven’t done in a while… appreciating the little things. People are enjoying more quiet nights at home, spending time with their friends and families. People are seeking inexpensive leisure activities such as going out to the park, attending social gatherings, etc. Along with such activities, many people are doing what they can to capture these good moments and hold on to these memories. They are blogging more, taking more digital photos and/or filming more home videos of family and friends, and so forth.

This economic and social shift has led to a vastly growing need for data storage to archive these new digital photos, home videos, writing projects and other important media files. People need inexpensive, reliable, automated, and simple-to-use backup solutions to manage this need for them. At IDrive Online Backup, we understand this great need and we make it very simple and user-friendly to backup your cherished memories.

IDrive users receive 150 GB of online storage, which is perfect for backing up your important files. The process is very simple to do and automated after the initial setup (designed for the “set it and forget it” user mentality). Best of all, IDrive costs a mere $4.95/month, which is about the cost of a Venti coffee these days. Users can also opt for a yearly payment plan of only $49.50 (includes two months free). With such inexpensive and reliable online backup, we are doing our part in helping people hold onto their precious memories, should their computer hard drives or other traditional backup methods ever falter or fail.
