Pro Softnet has announced improvements to its IDrive online backup service. IDrive is available in a free basic version, along with a pro version that’s priced from $5 per month.
IDrive lets you select what files to back up and archive. It offers continuous data protection and won’t delete data from your account until you tell it to. It features 128-bit SSL encryption on transfers and 256-bit AES encryption on storage, “time line restore,” summaries and detailed status info in backup logs, and more.
The service now sports faster search and restore capabilities, drag and drop support for backups and restores, and more. Last fall, the service added IDrive Lite, an iPhone application—available as a free download from the App Store—that lets users back up data on their iPhone as well.
