Good solution to NAS backup

2018-03-31

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.

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.

Elephant Drive gives me total peace of mind. No more worries about hard drive crashes!

2017-08-04

Peace of mind.

Pros

Multi-device backup all within one account. I have two computers plus my phone backed up to the cloud and the files are sync'd between them. If I add a NAS then backup for that is included too.

Cons

It does file sharing very well but isn't designed for collaboration as much as some other programs.

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

2018-04-11

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.

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) truly unlimited capacity, priced high enough to protect against outliers (who generate much higher costs than the mean or median users). We want clear, affordable pricing for all, so have not gone this route. Many companies have offered low priced unlimited plans, but discontinued.

3) unlimited capacity in tiered chunks - this is what we offer. We have plans for any amount of storage a user needs (even PB scale), but we offer capacity in tiers. We realize this isn't what you are requesting, but it is a set up we know we can support indefinitely.

Thanks again for your support!

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

2018-02-15

Pros

While I love the automatic backup function, the Elephant Drive Everywhere feature is my lifesaver.

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.

Simple, yet powerful with an easy to use interface

2018-01-23

Pros

Another great feature is the ability to synchronize across different platforms and devices through mobile apps for every device.

Cons

The biggest con has to be the file size limits. Currently there is a 1 GB file size limit (5 GB for business plans). I would love to see this increased.

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit a review and for your candid feedback.

One important note - while we still do enforce individual file size limits, we are increasing them over time and already allow larger files than you note in the "cons" section. Current personal plans support files up to 2 GB and current business plans support files up to 15 GB. If you are seeing anything else, please write to us at support@elephantdrive.com (it could be that you are somehow on a legacy plan).

Looking forward to helping you back up larger files!

Pros

It's super reliable, integrates really well with multiple platforms and offers cloud accessibility as well as file sharing.

Cons

It's not the most affordable option, but likely offers the most features compared to similar software.
