What is iDrive for Mac

IDrive is a user-friendly, secure, and reliable application that performs automated online backup of your files and folders.

Note: You must first sign up to use iDrive.

The application safeguards your critical data in case of a system crash. The graphical interface is coupled with powerful scheduling and logging features.

  • Incremental backups - only modified portions of files are backed up, thereby conserving bandwidth
  • Data compression during transmission for quick backups
  • Enhanced security with 128-bit SSL encryption on data transfers
  • Network or mapped-drive backup support
  • Automatic backup of critical data including the Desktop, Downloads, Documents, Music, Movies, and Pictures folders
  • Locate files and folders backed up to your account and restore the same to your Mac desktop
  • Snapshots allow you to retain changed data history over a period of time
  • Provision to regulate the Internet bandwidth usage with the Bandwidth Throttle feature more
  • Provision to perform interactive backups/restores or to schedule backups for a future date and time
  • 'Automatic Power off' option after a scheduled backup - the machine shuts down automatically once data is backed up

Note: subscription options can be viewed here.

CRITICAL TO KNOW! IDrive MUST be used in conjunction with Time Machine. It does NOT have full (OS) Restore capability. If you had a catastrophic hard drive crash on your computer, and only have IDrive, it will NOT do a full/complete restore to bring you back to original state. Without backing up the MacOS files, can you truly call this a backup solution? Just learned that today after spending an hour on the phone with their tech support.

I'm confused by the icon. Why is it an e in a lock when the service is called iDrive? What does the e stand for?

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 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.

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.
