I use ElephantDrive to backup all my date and work on the go!

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

I love how seamlessly it syncs to all my devices and is accessible from anywhere. I work on the go and in many different locations. It also instructs how to use the software very easily, which helps me a lot because I'm by no means tech-savy. I feel secure knowing my data is protected.

Cons

I had some initial trouble using it with Android, but then almost immediately after I ended up switching to Iphone anyway, so when I downloaded the app on ios it was totally fine

Vendor response

Thanks for posting - we will look into the problems you experienced with our Android app, but are glad to hear that it sounds like you are up and running on the iPhone app.

I back up everything in my life with Elephant Drive - it never fails me!

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

While I love the automatic backup function, the Elephant Drive Everywhere feature is my lifesaver. I've been far from home and needing to remember some small detail - whether it be a medical record, or something even more personal that no one else would have access to, and Everywhere is there for me. One good story of ElephantDrive Everywhere coming through for me happened when I found myself near...

Cons

It took me a little bit of learning to get used to the UI. They could have a better start up or tutorial process.

Vendor response

Excellent - glad you are getting value out of ElephantDrive. We will keep working on improving the UI to make it easier in the future.

A personal vault for my most precious files

Reviewed a year ago

ElephantDrive allowed me to save and recover some very useful work documents when our systems were ravaged by a deadly virus that corrupted a large number of files in the institutional cloud storage service we used. Fortunately, I kept a personal backup of all files I worked on in ElephantDrive so I was able to quickly recover the files of interest to make sure no valuable time was lost.

Pros

What I liked most about using ElephantDrive is the ease of use. Setting it up on my multiple devices was very simple and direct. The best part was that my files synced in real time without any delays at all.

Cons

The storage capacity given for the free account should be expanded.

this is a cloud storage service that allows its users to perform data backups in a scheduled manner.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

it is nice this service runs on both Windows and Mac platforms, and allows users to create simple automated rules for protecting data by moving it into an ElephantDrive account.

Cons

the least i like about is that ElephantDrive doesn't offer an unlimited plan. so you have to add that plan because the competitors offer unlimited backup.

Vendor response

Hi Moises - Thanks for the feedback. We want to address your note that we add an unlimited plan since it's an important issue and relevant to others. We found there are 3 ways to offer "unlimited": 1) unlimited capacity with other limitations (e.g. limit number of devices, transfer speed, file types, etc.). This seems like deceptive marketing - promises unlimited, but imposes practical limits. 2)...

Good solution to NAS backup

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

I have a Qnap Nas and needed a good way to backup the data an Elephant drive seems to do the job and take little management to get things setup

Cons

Pricing is a little more money than others, wish it had a desktop restore client to restore files locally.

Vendor response

Hi - thanks so much for your feedback in the Capterra review. One important note that might address the concern in your "cons" section - we do actually have a desktop client for restores (and you can use it to back up the desktop or laptop). This is part of the plan and has no additional costs. Also, we have mobile apps for iOS and Android, also free to use. We would be happy to help you get the desktop client set up and running. Just shoot us a note at support@elephantdrive.com.
