I’m a big fan of cloud backup services. You probably heard me talking KeepVault, CrashPlan, Amazon S3, and many more. I’ve learned that all of these services are not right for everyone. There are different things to like and dislike about all of them. I’ve run across a new service that’s actually selling an old product and a great limited deal. DrivePop.com. (UPDATE: This deal has been extended until Friday, July 19th. )
DrivePop is a cloud backup service for one to many PC’s and Macs in your network. I worked out a special limited offer with DrivePop that gives you a LIFETIME subscription for only a small up front fee. It’s DrivePop‘s hope that you will return the favor by telling everyone that you use DrivePop. It’s a limited price so don’t wait.
Here are the features and pricing:
I chose the $99.99 Ultimate plan just so I don’t have to worry about what PC’s I’ve used on the service. I’m betting the Family plan is what is best for most folks. Like Crashplan and many other cloud services, this is a backup service and not a archive service. Archive services like what Amazon offers cost a TON of money.
There are mobile apps for almost every platform! Windows Phone 8, Android, and even the iPhone and the iPad.
Surface RT!!! Look it up I swear, there is a Surface RT APP!!!
Another big selling point is the ability to stream music from the app. Upload music to the service and stream it back via mobile. I have yet to try this but it’s documented in the apps.
One thing you will notice about the DrivePop service is you see a lot of reference to “LiveDrive.” That’s because it’s using the Live Drive Cloud. Just look up Live Drive and you will see they are a company that has been around a long time and not going anywhere soon! I’m pretty confident in my new cloud backup service and I think you will enjoy this price. It won’t be around long though. I would expect this price to disappear sometime next week. July 18th, 2013. Act now. (if you are reading this later, I’ve managed to secure another great deal from Drive Pop) Click here.
