An online backup service is something that everyone with a pc should seriously consider. Buying home insurance and auto insurance, to keep our assets safe, is second nature for most of us. Similarly, if you keep anything of importance on your pc, you should consider online backup a necessity.

Many people don't utilize any backup system whatsoever. This is extremely risky, since a computer's hard drive will inevitably fail - and destroy everything on it in the process. Some people have a backup hard drive that periodically makes a copy of important files. While this is better than no protection at all, it's still vulnerable to events such as theft and fire.

IDrive has improved its user interface substantially over the past couple of years eliminating one of the past disadvantages of this online backup service. Its initial setup interface is much improved and has animated videos that illustrate the basics of the program. Other nice features include an auto-selection of files to be backed up, open file backup, archiving and version saving, and a web remote management interface.

A free mobile device backup is also available. It is compatible with the most current Windows-based operating systems, namely Vista, XP and Windows 7 and a Mac version is available as well. However, if you need both the Windows and Mac versions because you have both types of operating systems, you will need to set up two separate IDrive backup accounts.

Backups can be customized to choose which files and applications are to be backed up and when the backups should be performed. Their application supports versioning, making available the most recent 30 versions of a file for restoration.

IDrive Basic is free and will backup 2 GB of files on your computer. Like with other competitors that offer this free 2 GB service, it is a great way to try before you buy. IDrive Pro stores up to 150 GB and is $4.95 per month or $49.50 if you pay for a year in advance; a savings of 16 percent. IDrive Pro Family Pack stores up to 500 GB of data over five separate PC's and costs $14.95 per month or $149.50 per year. They also offer a business backup service, which ranges from 50 GB for $99.50 per year up to 1000 GB for $799.50 per year.

Overall, for a basic backup service IDrive offers plenty of information and great customer support with a toll-free number and 24/7 online live support.

Online backup services have recently matured into a product that is both easy and affordable. Using your existing internet connection, online backup services make copies of critical documents - or even your entire hard drive - and store these copies in a location away from your home. This form of digital insurance protects you from hard drive crashes and physical disasters - all with one affordable service.

Finding the right online backup service is critical in protecting your digital information. Not all online backup services are the same. It's important to consider several factors before choosing an online backup service provider:

  • Process.  Is the backup process automated or does it rely on the user remembering to save the data?
  • Ease of Use.  How simple is the interface? Can you easily find and restore your backup files?
  • Cost.  Some online backup services are actually free; others charge a low monthly fee, and still others have a different pricing structure. How much can you expect to pay and how does that compare to the competition?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best online backup services available today. We hope this information helps you protect your important data!
