IDrive Classic Editor's Review

For every type of computer user, backing up data has become near compulsory. Apart from data loss caused by hardware snags, you cannot rule out the risk of data loss caused by malware attacks. That explains why millions of PC users back up their data using various methods and software. While external devices used to be the most preferred data backup option earlier, user preferences are changing with time. After advent and rapid growth of cloud based data storage, a lot of users are choosing it over local backup methods. Plenty of cloud backup and storage services are available and you have to pick the most apt one for your needs. Try IDrive Classic if a hassle free and feature rich backup app is what you require.

IDrive Classic comes in various packages and basic package offers 5 GB of online storage for free. There are paid packages meant for business users. It can be installed on PCs with Windows XP and later editions. To start using the service, you need to create an account at company website.

IDrive Classic has a sleek and uncluttered UI which reduces learning curve. The 4 main options are for Log, scheduler, backup and restore which are displayed vertically at left side of the interface. At all times, the amount of storage quota used is displayed at top of the app UI.

When the first backup is executed, the app selects areas like Pictures, Music folders by default. However, you can also add the other folders that are required. One unique feature is the app creates a full backup for the first backup job and next backups are incremental in nature. This is both logical and convenient.

With IDrive Classic, you can back up various versions of a file. It can save up to 30 versions of a file, which should be enough for all types of users. Backing up data from a connected network drive is also possible. The app runs in standalone mode by default but you can enable its Sync option. When you enable it, a folder is created and the process is similar to services like Skydrive and Dropbox. Any file you keep in the folder gets synced across specified devices. You have to install iDrive app on those devices. Android and iOS apps are there. You can select an encryption password before data is backed up.

IDrive Classic is equipped with a feature called constant data protection. It is ideal when you want to keep data that is changed frequently, safe. The app also comes with a server backup feature enabling you to backup SharePoint, SQL Server and Oracle data. A system-state backup option is there. It allows backing up the Windows registry, Active Directory etc. When you delete data from IDrive account it remains in trash folder for a month and after that it cannot be retrieved. If you want to remove data that is not necessary and no longer exists in the PC, use the app’s Archive Cleanup feature.

Busy users will like to have automated backup and IDrive Classic does not dishearten in this respect. It comes with integrated backup scheduling feature. It is flexible as you can set hourly and daily schedules for your data. There is a convenient option to retry scheduled backups that were not executed as the computer was switched off. You can also set the app to turn off the computer after a scheduled backup is done.

There are options to set pop up reminders and email notifications as well. You get easy sharing options for backed up data while using this service. To save bandwidth, you can use the app’s bandwidth throttling feature, both for uploads and downloads. You can share data using Facebook or email. IDrive offers time limited phone support, round the clock email support for users.

Positive Points:

•    Customizable backup options.

•    Data syncing across devices.

Negative Points:
•    Nothing as such.

Conclusion:

The app is simple to set up and you get 5 GB storage limit for free. There are higher data limits for business plans as well. The data backup options are customizable and option for encrypting data is there too. The app lets you schedule data backups and you get notifications for the same. It even attempts scheduled backups when a schedule is missed for some reason. Restoring data is also simple as is sharing data online with others. There are plenty of features and advanced users can tinker with them for fulfilling their backup and syncing needs, as it is. The various support options come across icing on the cakes.
