Why cold? Seems a fantastic deal.

it looks like the small company image is putting people off, despite livedrive (the people doing the backup) been a large company

I think even at £24 it's a pretty good deal for unlimited?
Very tempted as I know exactly how it feels to lose all your data, even when it's backed up on-site

yeh thats what i thought cymru1978. Ive got my nan and uncle to go for it.

This is a great deal. If you get this directly from Livedrive is almost £40 a year. So even £24 is still great.

I've had this for couple of months and can recommend the service as is unlimited storage and number of PCs and it max out my broadband speed for upload/download. Before I signed up I couldn't find a vendor that offered all this for a reasonable cost for my 80GB of personal data.

Brilliant offer, nothing worst than not having a backup, got about 30gb of family photos and videos that I treasure most, so this is perfect. Heat!!

What exactly does 'unlimited' entail though? I doubt they'll be happy with me uploading terrabytes of data?

worried about this being legit tbh!

What happens if they up their prices substantially once they have enough people on board, which i suspect they will! Can the files be easily transferred, either to a similar site or hard drive etc ?

Cheers OP, been thinking of some online backups for ages now. Just none seemed to give me what I want for reasonable prices :@)

Very good offer worth a punt for a pound, also the security of paypal for payments. Hot!

I use Mozy which is a great system at $4.95 per month for 50GB, will take a look at this though it means re-uploading 40GB of files again

exactly - signing up is the easy part, taking this forward to year 2 will be a pain

not voting cold though. its a good deal if you're ready to pay double figures year 2 onwards

From livedrive.com/ter…use

Remember to cancel it in 1 years time, or they'll charge you. Usual marketing ploy.

still though, for £24 a year, it's pretty competitive for what the offer is.

Is the subscription can be cancelled after one year?

Backups are something usually worth paying for.

Bargain, gone for it.

It's cheap at £24, but I now have a year to see if they are any good before paying that much.

well thanks OP I've gone for it. Even £24 is a bargain for the service they offer compared to mozy. Now to start the uploads

think its daft u pay to store your personal data online for anyone to look at, if u want safety put it on a flash drive and dont connect to the net.....lol

Livedrive offer a re-seller package which allows a reseller to sell unlimited accounts for a monthly fee (£39.95) and that could be why they can afford to do it so cheap?

This re-seller will probably be laughing his way to the bank now!

Ive just purchaed it, but what do i do now? where do i go to upload my docs?

Why not use dropbox?

HOT!
A good way to celebrate World Backup Day!

Dropbox isn't unlimited

So anyone can be a reseller and potentially post a deal on here...... Now there's a marketing idea!

Fire or theft takes your primary computer and the backup then you've had it.

I wouldn't store anything online unless it is appropriately protected though so I'll read up on it before signing up.

Yo ucan always zip it and apssword protect it. This is for backup, not instant access

Ordered. Has anyone got a confirmation email though? I only got PayPal email so far

bit difficult for backing up if you have several 2tb drives of data

lol i think they are struggling to keep up with demand atm.... "The chief geek has popped out to fix a poorly Mac - so don't expect your account details for a couple of hours..."
Wasnt on their site this morning.
Im not in anyway working for them btw, i just saw it was world backup day on twitter and found this! They should be giving me commission

Has anyone had any experience of adrive ? . they offer 50gb free storage........

There are much better methods of protection than zip...

Looking at livedrive.com/res…ers its £39.95 per month,
but you can then resell many accounts as you like for that (no additional charges)

Normal price is £3.95 /month (£35/yr) for a single user account.



so even though its a reseller offering this deal, this is still safe?

Giving this a try. Its something i've been planning to do for a while but never got around to it. This has given me the push I need.

How many people have lost something and wished they had it backed up?

Thanks op

FOr those saying about reseller - you'll see on the main page that no commission is being paid from this.
