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.

Pros

Data is backed up swiftly and automatically, which makes work faster and better. It is a good price and provides excellent customer service.
Am completely satisfied with the functionalities offered in this product in ensuring reliable and effective data recovery experience.
Coste effective, time saving and best for Virtualization and flexible for cloud applications. It's really reliable and scalable cloud solution for all type of applications.

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.

Cons

Rich and outrageous Disaster recovery product for multiple environments.
The only downside about VMware Cloud Director Availability is the large storage space it consumes. It requires a lot of RAM space in order to function adequately.
They avoid lip service and focus on the issue.

Very nice cloud backup service

Reviewed 6 months ago

I purchased a yearly subscription to backup my personal NAS. Within minutes of creating the account, I was already scheduling my first backup, thanks to the iDrive application I downloaded for my NAS. So far I am pretty satisfied with the service and would easily recommend to friends and colleagues

Pros

Ease of use, availability of a specific backup program for my NAS, competitive pricing

Cons

Nothing relevant to note, so far I am satisfied with the service

Great cloud backup for photographers.

Pros

As a photographer using cameras with high resolution, storage is a must. I use a 5TB drive for my photos but need additional storage at an offsite location. Many online backups don't have the amount of storage I need or are really expensive. IDrive is highly rated for this use and works great and has more storage than I need in the immediate future.

Cons

There is nothing to not like. IDrive is a great product.

No-fuss easy access and reliable back-up

Reviewed 7 months ago

This has been most pleasant thus far, and since another company's home cloud drive just sunsetted their software, this is a pretty good alternative.

Pros

The interface is straight-forward and super easy, with both a back-up and cloud storage option that operate independently. Very intuitive and no-fuss at all.

Cons

Only the fact that the cloud storage requires the files to be duplicated on your machine in the "cloud" folder, which eats up some space if you want to store a lot of data. I would prefer the drag-drop to the cloud without this unnecessary replication.

The perfect service for the money you can buy

Reviewed 5 months ago

I use iDrive mainly as a disaster recovery fall-back. the local cloud backup copy is synchronised with the cloud once a while to assure easy access to data if something will happen to the local cloud.

Pros

Easy to install, to configure and to use. Not invasive and does what is supposed to do without any stress.

Cons

Sometimes slow in upload. The overall interface could be improved from a UX perspective.

Too slow to upload files

I mainly wanted to use idrive as a cloud storage solution, not to backup my devices. However, the process of uploading all my files has been painfully slow, and if I try to upload a large set of files, it often fails and does not upload all of them. Very frustrating experience.

Happy iDrive user

Reviewed a year ago

Peace of mind from a complete cloud backup!

Pros

I run a small company, and it was very easy to install and launch iDrive. Some have commented that cloud backup is slow, but iDrive offers an excellent solution with a free file sharing by shipping a USB drive back and forth with the main files loaded on it. Went flawlessly! From then forward it's only incremental backups which are quick.

Cons

It wasn't clear at purchase that the USB shuttle was available (and necessary to get a lot of data synched).

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
