There are several forum reports of very VERY slow speeds in recent months which isn't going be eased by a rush of new subscribers under this deal.https://forum.idrive.com/topic.php?id=959


It is a little bit slow TBH, only using about 7Mbps of my 19Mbps upstream. However, that shouldn't really matter after the original backup which you can just leave overnight or whatever. From then on, it's going to be just some small additions here and there for most people.

This turned out not to be such a good deal. I received notification from Parcelforce that I need to pay £17.06 VAT, plus an £8 clearance fee.

The VAT is far too much for something that cost £39. Presumably they've marked the value as being a lot more than I actually paid for it.

This is a insane deal, I bought one to back all of my families iPhones,iPads and comp

Strange one, but honestly I've never had any ads pop up from it

It is odd: they've replied to an email saying "ain't us guv" and sound genuine....it's just massively co-incidental....but I might be misjudging them.

Wow, think I'll not bother posting again. Just got shot down in flames. Apologies for those who don't "get it". Yes you can buy a 1TB drive. But of those people who do, do you setup regular backups to that drive? Is that the only copy of your data?

My house was burgled on 1st Nov last year and we lost 12 years of family photos. iDrive paid for itself on that day.

Everything was restored within about 2 days.

PS. As I mentioned, I've used other companies that offer more storage for less money. All I can say is, you get what you pay for.

@watson44, downloading is quick but you are correct, to get the whole lot 'uploaded' to another supplier can take a couple of weeks. I've done this a few times when I was trying some of the cheaper suppliers. but their client software / support was terrible and / or slowed my machine down.

External drives are great but its not a like for like comparison with cloud storage.

Both have their different pros and cons. for me i still like an offsite backup.

Cloud storage can be accessed from anywhere and also doesn't get affected by the risk of fire/theft at your home.

what??!! oOyou've just paid £90 for 1TB of storage space that you do not … what??!! oOyou've just paid £90 for 1TB of storage space that you do not own?!just out of curiosity, how long would it take you to download 1 TB, should you decide not to renew and where would you store it??


What do you mean by do not own? its cloud storage and like most cloud providers you pay an annual fee

You get unlimited storage at CrashPlan for a very similar price.
