I have used Idrive for a year now. I have the 2TB plan. I have it on 4 computers and 2 phones. I am very pleased! It works great. Their server speeds are lightning fast. I have tested restoring files with no problems. Idrive is well worth the price compared to other companies I've used.

NEVER USE THIS! Lost a LOOOOT of files using this service. They don't backup hidden files if you don't select the "SHOW hidden files" options. I'm trying to restore files they did manage to backup and some folders are simply not being restored.

AVOID! This service is unreliable and will just set false expectations for your data to be protected, and then one day you will notice it stopped backing up for no reason and hasn't backed up anything in a long time. You will then configure it again and it will just backup everything again, further consuming any metered Internet service you have. Contacting support is pointless, I spent many hours with them remotely accessing my system or collecting files for them or troubleshooting...only to have a dysfunctional service that will not refund the charges. It worked fine for the first month or 2, and then stopped...and they refuse to refund after 30-days, oh so convenient for them that it worked for 5-6 weeks before failing.

I have used this app for about a year, and it is not inexpensive if you have any significant data. I found it easy enough to use, although I never needed to recover data, the usually least tried and most difficult part of backup programs. But I have finally uninstalled and cancelled the subscription for one major reason: it almost continuously applies nag alerts to your desktop which you cannot avoid in any configuration setting. These are not small nag alerts, and they become continuous clutter. So I am out of here, and will move to an application which is less intrusive, and does not covet my desktop quite so much.

I see most of the neg feedback is for older versions. I'm using 3.5.4.4. I have used Idrive for six months now and it works flawlessly. I have used 3 other companies and IDrive is the best so far. I orders a seed drive because I have a large amount of data. The disk arrived in 3 days. I backed up 3 computers to it and returned it to IDrive. Once they got it, it took 4 days and all my data was transferred to my account. All this at no extra charge! It would have taken months to upload all my data over the internet. The app is a little dated, but once you figure it out it's so easy to use.

I've tried just about every online backup solution, and I have always loved iDrive. Even if you just wanted to use it as a cloud storage & sharing app, or a syncing solution for your local devices and/or cloud, it's excellent. I find it fast, invisible, and invaluable.

After crashplan has announced the discontinuation of their home product I was looking for a replacement. I tried out or informed me about many services and found iDrive is the one to choose for me. Here is why: - Backup multiple devices (Mac, NAS) - Privacy / Security (using my own encryption key) - Advanced selection for the backup set and fine tuning options - Restoration options (e.g. restore to custom folder) - Price I have found that even the mac app isn't very nice, I really don't care about it, as a backup tool is something you once set up and forget - of course after you tested the restoration process. I also can't confirm the slow upload speed others mentioned here. So for me iDrive is the perfect replacement of crashplan.

First experience with cloud storage. I paid for the fee-based version. The initial upload of my 133GB SSD took over 48 hours. Vendor replied to emails, but would not address specific questions. Upload speed was nowhere near my available bandwidth. Interface is confusing and data reporting appears to be inaccurate. In less than a week, our storage in the cloud had reached twice the data level on the SSD being backed-up. I really have no confidence in this company or their software. I canceled my account and asked for a full refund.
