Another powerful function bundled in IDrive gives you the possibility to back up files and documents with different versions, and each backup creates a new backup set identified by a particular date and time. Plus, the tool maintains up to 30 previous versions of all the files in your account and historical versions are stored-free, while only the current version in computed in your storage.
What’s more, you can backup information from connected network drives and easily restore the files and folders from your iDrive account.
The utility offers support for automatic backup operations which enable you to set the backup start time, configure the flexible timetable (daily or hourly actions), send email notifications, and show popup messages.
There are also several powerful parameters that help you locate any file or folder present in your IDrive account using the search function, share your files and folders via email, Facebook, or Twitter, as well as remove unwanted data and easily recover it from the Trash folder within 30 days.
The Archive Cleanup feature enables you to permanently delete data which no longer exists in your computer in order to free up some space in your account, while the Log section provides detailed information about the backup, restoring, deletion or other tasks performed in your account.
IDrive is able to automatically recognize the changes to files present in your backup and save them in real-time, and lets you back up some files when they are in use (e.g. Outlook files, QuickBooks, Quicken, ACT, MS-Money), create exclusion lists, configure proxy settings, create encrypted backups, and set the Internet bandwidth.
All in all, IDrive proves to be a user-friendly and powerful application that offers support for a fully-featured pack of tools for helping you automatically back up, restore, and share your data.

Runs as a Windows service to allow SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE to access a remote computer and use it as a backup source or destination.
SyncBack Touch is a Windows service that works alongside SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE to allow remote backups and data synchronization. In other words, it enables you to connect to a remote computer and use it as a backup source or destination.
You must deploy SyncBack Touch on the computer that you want to access remotely. On the other hand, SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE must be installed on the workstation you want to manage backup profiles from. Please note that no other edition of SyncBack supports the Touch service.
As SyncBack Touch is a Windows service, it does not feature a standard interface or a configuration window. However, if the service is running, SyncBackPro and SyncBackSE will be able to establish remote connections, and not necessarily in the same network.
To use the remote access service, you must create a new profile in SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE. No matter whether you want to perform backups, data copying or synchronization, SyncBack Touch can be chosen as a source or a destination during profile setup.
If the target PC is on the same network, your SyncBack app should be able to automatically detect its presence and fill in the hostname and the port number. Otherwise, you will have to fill this information yourself.
If you activated the impersonation feature during the installation of SyncBack Touch, then the Windows credentials of the remote PC will also be required.
Thanks to SyncBack Touch, the two editions of SyncBack mentioned above get an additional feature: remote backup and synchronization. Furthermore, SyncBack Touch is also available for MacOS and Android, which means you will be able to backup your phone's data on a Windows PC.

Back up and access your files from wherever with this cloud solution, capable of acting as if it were a physical drive on your computer.
Over the last decade, the emergence of cloud services has changed the way people back up their data. The popularity of such a solution was not at all surprising: knowing your files and documents are safe is one thing, but being able to access them from anywhere is entirely another. PC software, web app, as well as mobile phone compatibility — it's all so convenient with the tools at your disposal.
As one can expect, cloud solutions have been getting more and more varied. You can pick and choose from many different providers, and perhaps Icedrive's take may just entice you: the same convenience, bundled with the ability to access your data as if it were on a physical drive.
The main feature of Icedrive is that it can integrate seamlessly with your machine, syncing your data and making it appear as physical storage. Backing up and restoring are done that way. After "mounting" the software, a new drive will appear in your system, allowing you to drag and drop the files you want to have at the ready.
This functionality is very convenient and practical. By having your cloud storage act as a physical drive, you'll be able to preserve your important documents, images, and folders more often, as well as access them as though they were on your hard drive.
Icedrive provides you with the possibility of syncing certain folders you periodically want to back up. You'll first have to designate it through the "New sync pair" — and then the whole process will be automated.
For those who need it, this software also has a portable version. Though the mounting drive feature is only available in the installable version, the cloud functionality is still easy to access. A web and mobile app are also available, so that you can view and retrieve the things you need, when you need them.
In conclusion, Icedrive is a solid app. Though the market is very competitive, the options this software provides are worth exploring.

Fast backup and synchronization utility that enables you to create copies of your folders and files on external hard drives, discs, FTP servers, and shared drives.
SyncBack is an easy to use application designed to help you set and perform backup and synchronization jobs.
When running SyncBack for the first time, you have to setup a customized profile. Although this can take time, the available options cover a wide range of situations that may occur when performing a backup or synchronizing two directories. Besides, you have the possibility to schedule jobs, so you don't need to configure another profile every time.
The first step is to choose the source and destination folders, as well as the job type. The program can be used with files and folders on your hard drive, CDs, DVDs or USB drives. Furthermore, the destination directory can be on a FTP server, as well as on a network computer.
If you are a beginner, you can use the 'Easy' mode, while the 'Expert' mode is destined for professionals. But no matter what you choose, the program provides you with multiple options to customize your sync / backup profile.
For example, you have to choose the desired action in different situations, such as when a file can be found only in the destination folder. There are some features that are only available for experts, such as customizing the comparing attributes for the sync jobs or setting which programs should be closed / started before and after performing the job.
In addition to this, the program offers you the possibility to easily filter the copied files and folders. In order to save space when doing a backup, the files can be compressed into an archive.
Also, you can optionally choose to be prompted for file deletions, as well as verify that the files are copied correctly. To make sure that the computer performed the selected job, you can receive the log file on your email address.
One interesting feature of the application is that it offers you the possibility to simulate a job, meaning that no file is really copied, but a report is generated.
SyncBack combines the ease of use with a multitude of features for expert users. It is a handy and highly-customizable utility that allows you to easily backup files or synchronize folders.
