We’re a taking a new approach to backup, giving our users the best of both worlds with our new Hybrid backup feature. IDrive users can now backup their critical files locally and also in the cloud. Local backup solves one of major pain points of online backup, slow restore speeds. Backing up large amounts of data becomes easy as well with local backup, as the large data sets do not have to be backed up over the internet, as upload speeds can be slowed but rather locally, which offers faster backup.
Users can backup to any mapped drive including hard drives, external drives and shared drives. Data is also secure at the local level with IDrive’s 256-bit AES encryption along with the option for private key encryption.
Our more advanced users looking to backup server data like SQL, Sharepoint, Oracle or Exchange can also take advantage of local backup as its available for server backup as well.
Available at no-cost to IDrive users, local backup is a great addition to any backup strategy. So it’s time to start going Local!
