I'm using iDrive for a year. In general, not bad and customer support responds fast to requests. But there are some issues:
- file change detection takes some time. I changed a file, then immediately triggered a backup manually, but iDrive did not pick up changes and told there is 0 changed files. It took some time for iDrive to detect it
- if you have lots of small files, iDrive search can be very slow. I have 300GB and search takes about 10 minutes
- file sharing works only for iDrive users. You cannot share files with anybody through direct links.
- their Android app defaults to image resizing for Photo backups. This is dangerous - imagine you went for a vacation trip, took a lot of pictures, they got backed up by iDrive. Then you lost the phone or it got water damaged. "No big deal, I have a backup" you say... but it turns out your gorgeous photos got resized much smaller. Ooops...

90% off the fisrt year... small print: you have to prove that you're switching from a non-free competitor. What a dick move.
They should remove that clause to hook in first time users knowing once people have their data on idrive's servers they're less likely to switch/cancel.

BlackBlaze is my next choice, I am not signing up with them because they don't have customer service phone number.

I am Unhappy customer of Carobonite. I was their customer since last 7 years, I used to back up a few internal drives on a single computer, not they don't support multiple drives in single computer. The worst part is they changed the service to their current users. Now it is time to look for a better online backup service.

Idrive is the worst, it takes forever to load

They will bill your account for renewal every year with no notice.
If you try to cancel and get a refund they say you didn't cancel within 15 days.
If you opt out of the automatic renewal this year they will bill you next year anyway and the fight goes on.
I am filing a complaint with the Attorney Generals office in my state to get a cease and desist order.

Good video review and I've signed up for the service. I've reviewed several negative complaints here and elsewhere. Most of them are silly (but not all) or fall into the ignorant category because folks didn't read the terms well enough...or expect a service to continue after the money dries up. For me...all I want is a backup storage service for personal/home use...and for spouse and 2 sons in our home. For the moment...I'll continue to also use Dropbox (earned a 15GB level) when I want to share stuff with others.

Up to now, I've been relying on an external hard drive. However...time to rely on something with additional reliability.
Is the 75% discount for personal or business use?
idrive has unlimited for $19.99

I had a look on idrive but looks like it requires the user to drag the folder into a sync folder to use it. I cannot do that.I need a software that can real time sync multiple selected folders in my computer.
Awesome video, cloudwards. You don't know how much I appreciate your cloud backup reviews. I'm one who learned the the importance of regular backups the hard way. I've been using iDrive for about 6 mos now (used the 14.97 special rate). I've been receiving email offers for other services to try at good intro rates, specifically pCloud and Zoolz. Understanding these comparisons doesn't come easy for me but I've found your vids a great place to start. I'm working my way through all your cloud backup reviews and wondering if you'd be open to answering any questions afterward?

I have a fast Dell Workstation (Core i7 CPU, Q 740 @ 1.73 GHz and 16 GB Ram).
Upload speed = 5.73 Mbps. 1 TB is probably all the storage I'd need.
Cold storage doesn't sound exciting for my situation but multiple device backups does.

I'd also like to say that I'm a senior, living on a fixed income (very old avatar ;) and knowing that the rate for iDrive is going up drastically upon renewal, I'm trying to find the service that will give me the best bang for the buck.

Thank you again for your videos ..very well done!

do you think they'll give some discounts for christmas? I want to go for it, I like the multiple device feature

Permanent Storage is what i need a true online external hard drive but i've one doubt cloudwards, lets say suppose your 1 year subscription ends & you do not renew the subscription, ofcourse i wont be able to sync data or add any data but will i be able to retrieve my data any time i want without a day limit grace period ? Or would it delete my data after the subscription ends just like crashplan & backblaze does ? If its the former its really "True Archiving" i would gladly buy it as its much much much better than Unlimited storage!

....I've read many, MANY negative reviews about iDrive's support just today!
Thom Vandevenne
Really liked your video but I fail to find good reviews from customers. Like Massimo below they don`t spell "best ever" to me, especially as mac user.
Massimo Cavalieri d'Oro
Idrive has the worst customer care you can ever imagine. Not to mention the very slow backup and restore speed from Europe (2mbit for up or down tested on different machines in 3 different countries, Belgium, Italy and UK, on very fast computers and connections). Stay away from Idrive.
