Pros

It's easy to use, automatically backs up and gives you the most important data about it. I even like that they email you if your computer hasn't connected to their cloud in a while.
Backblaze has been a lifesaver. I downloaded the software and it backs up my documents.
Backup solution is robust and simple. I really like that because a control panel and configure should be as simple as possible.

Pros

Express Backup with free physical hardware shipment for initial backup was awesome and convenient. Ability to integrate with Synology DSM is important.
I am happy with the value. So long as you don't expect any wow factor in speed, customer service, and snag free customized setup, I would recommend to anyone looking for a value service.
With cloud storage pricing increasing, IDrive offers a great solution for those looking to switch over to their platform. They offer awesome deals for users that are first time users.

Cons

The benefit of knowing that my data is securely stored if my computer and my first line of backups fail. Lets face it, external hard drives can fail as easily as an internal hard drive.
That's more limited by the bandwidth you pay for.
Backblaze set it and forget it until you need it.

Cons

Fails from time to time, not sure why. Have to leave the computer on all the time and takes a long time to back up a small amount of files.
Most of the time the backup works as it should. Other times it fails to back up to the cloud my files/folders.
The feature missing that I would want the most is continuous backup. The scheduler allows a daily, and weekly backup and hourly backup only.

Best service if your requirement is upto 10 tb and you are on a budget

Reviewed 22 days ago

Overall its been a good service, that i am using for now. There are nt many great alternatives to this service and hence, for right now i am using it.

Pros

The pricing and both cloud and backup storage in one single account is a great feature. Its like having google drive and backblaze in one service.

Cons

The backup utility must be lightweight. Which currently it is not.

Pros

Good quality, cost effective, practical Cloud Storage solution, highly recommend

Cons

The only feature I would like is for the addition of a "file on demand" option in the sync feature where the files are not downloaded until requested but listed in Explorer as if they were there.

Great alternative to Amazon Drive

Reviewed 2 years ago

After Amazon Drive let us know they were shutting down the service, we were forced to search for an alternative. We backed up our professional photography every day using Amazon Drive for years, and were happy with their service because we didn’t have to think about it!We researched alternatives and found IDrive. The transfer of our files was easy even with our large quantity of files. Our internet provider actually called us to make sure everything was okay since we were transferring such an unusually large amount of data but we didn’t even have to think about the process once we started.Amazon drive is basically a hard drive online but this one requires us to synchronize with our computer.

Pros

Ease of use Affordable PriceAvailable storage size

Cons

Doesn’t seem to have a way to sync files to cloud storage

Taking the Worry Out of It

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall my experience has been very good. I feel I have gotten my money's worth.

Pros

I love that it is a set it and forget it thing. I really like being able to set a schedule and have it just run - it really takes the worry out of it for me. I especially love being able to partition so that my different machine backups are clearly separate from each other.

Cons

I wouldn't mind if it did backup files that are already on cloud storage elsewhere.

The best on the market

Reviewed 6 months ago

Overall I’m very satisfied with the storage option & services provided by idrive

Pros

The cloud storage services the company is providing are the best in the market right now (price, storage option and security wise).

Cons

The only downside is regarding the web and app interface. It is not so intuitive and easy to use (especially for a beginner level user). If they manage to fix this issues, this services will have no match on the market.

As a user who wants to secure files with an online back-up system, IDrive is highly recommended especially for personal use.

IDrive: easy backup solutions and reliable cloud storage!

Reviewed 5 months ago

Helped me back up a PC that had 1.5TB of info and I needed to do it without me having an external drive with that capacity. So I just got IDrive and backed it up online. Upload speed was not super fast, but reliable and I just had to leave the entire process alone until it finished. No hoops or difficulties found in the process.

Pros

Low price for the first year, for a ton of cloud storage space.

Cons

You can't see your cloud folder on desktop without the application downloading a copy of the files to your hard drive first.
