Backing up data is easy. The hard part comes when you have to restore that data, and that’s where IDrive really does shine.
A couple of days ago I had to reinstall my hard drive. It happens from time to time, especially when you are downloading and testing a lot of different applications. Unfortunately, I forgot to make a local copy of the things that were the most important to me: namely, the applications I had written and my documents. This is stuff that isn’t exactly replaceable. After the typical panic I remembered that I had tried out IDrive and logged back in. Lo and behold, I was able to quickly restore those documents. Just a click and a checkmark and I was in business. IDrive is one of those services that you have to try. It starts out with a 2 GB limit but you can push that up to 12 with a promotional e-mail sent out. Best of all, you can schedule the backup to when you are not actively surfing the Internet. I would sign up for this service today.
