  • Back-to-School Backup: Keep Your School Data Secure with IDrive



    If you’re one of the many who rely on technology to get your homework done, here’s how IDrive can help you keep your data secure and accessible through the school year.

    Back It ALL Up

    Today 1.5 million iPads are used in schools across the country with over 20,000 education apps. With the upcoming releases of iPad Pro and Pixel C — faster, bigger tablets that are ideal for schoolwork — mobile devices are poised to become just as essential to students as computers.

    The emergence of mobile in the classroom means between all of your computers, tablets, and smartphones, you probably use at least three devices to get your schoolwork done. To keep all your school data secure, you’ll need a cloud backup solution like IDrive which is compatible with all of them, from iOS to Android, PC to Mac.

    You also want to consider affordability. Backing up multiple devices can get costly if your backup service charges you per every phone, tablet, and computer. You can save a lot of money with IDrive because we let you backup all your devices at no additional fee per extra device.

    Carry All Your Homework In Your Pocket

    Say you just finished an assignment and your computer crashes before you can turn it in. With a secure, local storage device like IDrive Wi-Fi, you can carry your assignments with you in your pocket, and restore them over a speedy wireless connection to another computer just before the deadline.

    Have A Place To Crash

    You might have your mandatory meningitis shot, but there’s no vaccine for malware. Nor is the device on which you store your critical data going to live forever.

    If your device does crash and your data gets wiped out, online backup acts as a safety net so you can easily restore your data to another device.

    IDrive saves up to 10 versions of all your files, so you can revert back to the most recent draft of your English essay before it was infected.

    Back It Up!
