IDrive Feature Spotlight – Remote Manage

With the newly updated web interface and software, IDrive Online Backup is one of the simplest cloud backup tools out there. Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it isn’t also powerful! This week, we’d like to highlight one of our more powerful features, Remote Manage.


What is Remote Manage? It’s a tool that allows you to add or remove items from your backup set, alter your schedule; you can even delete data that you’ve backed up to IDrive. What’s the best part of all this? This tool is available from the web, meaning that you’re able to manage your entire account completely online, without having to go to each individual device! Please note, however, that the device you’d like to manage must be turned on and must have an active Internet connection.


If you have computers in multiple locations, then this is a super important feature! All you have to do is log in to your IDrive account from the website, then you can click on Remote Manage in the list on the left-hand side. From there, you just need to select which device you’d like to change the settings for. Managing your IDrive account has never been easier!
