Online backup made simple. IDrive.

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Online backup made simple.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Pro Softnet’s IDrive online back up service has been around for a while, but the latest version of the software for Windows or Macs has gained some versatility.   Business development manager Stephen Gold…says you can start with a five gigabyte account for free…

“And then each night, IDrive will chunk away at your data and eventually have all of your data backed up to your account, depending on how much you have, and then you have full access to it from IDrive.com from anywhere in the world.”  And there are apps that work with this as well?  “Correct.  We have an iPhone app and iPad app that will give you full access to all of the files in your account.  We also have an application called IDrive lite which is free and it backs up contacts and photos for iPhone and it backs up contacts for Android and Blackberry devices as well.”

A 150 gigabyte personal use plan is priced at 5 dollars per month.   There’s more info at IDrive.com.    You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
