  • DrivePop Cloud Storage $49.99 Lifetime Subscription for a Limited time!


    UPDATE: This deal has expired.


    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.

    That's a crazy price for 1 PC backup in my opinion. Backupthat offers it for free, and you get all of your files sent to you in your email. That way, no matter what happens, you have all of your files in your control.

    That's interesting. I won't say it's crazy because I think all these different cloud options appeal to everyone differently. There is not one that is perfect for everyone. I can say that yours is not for me.

    Since BackupThat used my GMail to backup my files in my case, I will assume there is an upsell on the backend. Please explain to me how my 6GB GMail account can backup my 600GB of local files for free? This smells of the JustCloud upsell business model.

    Been using them for a few weeks now. There are no upsells with this, there are only other services that you can add on if you want such as a NAS storage backup or a SYNC virtual drive. Justcloud is the king of the upsell label. If you only need cloud backup then this is a real deal.

    One question: On their main site I see "LiveDrive Briefcase". Not clear to me if any of these special Home Server Show offers offer the briefcase as part of the package?

    Doesn't appear to backup from my WHS2011 which is using StableBit drive pool. Has anyone else installed this product on WHS2011?

    • I throw this out every once in a while.  Is anyone interested in writing up "semi-formal" reviews here on the forums?  I say semi-formal because they don't have to be pro level, just a good attempt at telling the story about the gear.  Something you have purchased lately.  You don't have to go buy stuff, just incorporate what you have already have purchased.  Hit me up with any questions.  You never know where it will lead!

    • D-Link has dropped a couple of new products and additions to their lineup of smart home gear.  Hold on because there is a lot of gear!
      Let's start with cameras.  D-Link has new Wi-Fi cameras, the Full HD Pan and Tilt Pro Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8302LH) and Full HD Indoor and Outdoor Pro Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8526LH).  These are not just new, and good looking cams, they can now perform people detection and glass break detection.  The new cameras also feature expanded ways for customers to save video, including ONVIF Profile S, which enables custom storage and streaming options to personal NAS devices, built-in storage microSD capacity up to 256 GB, as well as free and paid cloud storage options. 

      This year's camera models include both an indoor and an outdoor model. The outdoor model features a spotlight and siren that can be triggered when motion is detected, deterring potential intruders. The indoor model pans around to give a full 360-degree view of any room and tracks motion. Both include two-way audio. 
      Full HD Pan and Tilt Pro Wi-Fi Camera is the model (DCS-8302LH), available in Q2, 2020, and retail pricing will be $99.99.
      Full HD Indoor and Outdoor Pro Wi-Fi Camera is the model (DCS-8526LH), available in Q3, 2020, and retail pricing will be $119.99.
      One of my favorite products is Wi-Fi.  D-Link has a whole lot of new products coming including Wi-Fi 6, Mesh, Alexa and Google Assistant integration, IFTTT, Parental Controls, and more!

      There are so many new SKU's that I can't make heads or tails of them!  I'm going to be speaking with D-Link more this week and will sort all of these out. I do want you to see all they are offering and what the release date and projected retail pricing will be.

    • RESET Merch Shop
      Get ya Merch here!  I've created a T-Shirt shop with the famous RESET paperclip. I've pasted that clip on just about everything so you can wear it around town!  Cable bags, Coffee Mugs, T-Shirts, and more. 
      or you can get it it via
      Here is the main design.

      Below is a part of the order that I put in!  

      The Heather Grey above is the Extra Soft version and it is awesome.  I highly recommend the softness!    The "Chili Red" is the Tri-Blend and probably my favorite feel and color.

      This is the Zip-Up Hoody, Heather Indigo, Sponge Fleece, Men's, Large.  In my podcast I couldn't remember what style it was but it is Sponge Fleece. It's REALLY soft on the inside. Soft outside as well. The only problem is with the zip up hoody the logo is on the back. Regular hoody, it will be on the front.

    • OneDrive Personal Vault and expandable storage
      Microsoft's OneDrive has a few new features and options worth pointing out.  Personal Vault and Expandable Storage.
      Personal Vault is a protected area in OneDrive that can only be accessed with a strong authentication method or a second step of identity verification, such as your fingerprint, face, PIN, or a code sent to you via email or SMS. 
      Personal Vault gives you an added layer of protection for your most important files, photos, and videos—for example, copies of documents such as your passport, driver’s license, or insurance information—should someone gain access to your account or device.
      Plus, this added security won’t slow you down. You can quickly access your important documents, photos, and files with confidence wherever you are, on your PC, OneDrive.com, or your mobile device.

      Beyond a second layer of identity verification, Personal Vault also includes the following security measures:
      Scan and shoot—Using the OneDrive app, you can scan documents or shoot photos directly into your Personal Vault, keeping them off less secure areas of your device, like your camera roll.
      Automatic locking—No need to worry about whether you left your Personal Vault or your files open—both will close and lock automatically after a period of inactivity.
      BitLocker encryption—On Windows 10 PCs, OneDrive automatically syncs your Personal Vault files to a BitLocker-encrypted area of your local hard drive.
      Restricted sharing—To prevent accidental sharing, files in Personal Vault and shared items moved into Personal Vault cannot be shared.
      Taken together, these security measures help ensure that Personal Vault files are not stored unprotected on your PC, and your files have additional protection, even if your Windows 10 PC or mobile device is lost, stolen, or someone gains access to it or to your account.
      Expandable Storage
      If you are and Office 365 Subscriber you get 1 TB of OneDrive storage space with all the other Office goodies like Word, Excel, etc.  I know personally that I have gone over the 1TB limit and have always wanted to be able to add additional storage to my account.  Now you can!

      Pick and option and keep on hoarding, errr, I mean saving! Cancel anytime, upgrade at any moment.

    • Ubiquiti adds new items to the Unifi Line including UAP Flex HD and the Unifi Dream machine
      Ubiquiti has been busy.  There area ton of new items to recently released and I'm going to share two of my favorites.
      The UAP Flex HD and the Unifi Dream machine. The Flex HD is a mouthful of descriptors like most of UI gear is.  It's a 2Ghz 2x2 MIMO, 5GHz 4x4 MU-MIMO, POE, Indoor/Outdoor, multi mount, mesh point that is no bigger than a can of Coke.

      You will still need the Unifi controller although you can configure it with basic functionality with the Unifi App.  I've always found it's best to configure with your controller and then use the app as an add-on.  There are several mounting options that include sitting it on a shelf! That is something that Unifi has not had before unless you count the ceiling AP I have awkwardly mounted placed on top of a few books.  It can be found on the Unifi store for $179.
      The Dream Machine is an altogether different beast that I hope lives up to its naming.  This is the gateway drug, for lack of a better term, to the Unifi world.  The starter kit.  It is an Access Point, Gigabit Switch, Security Gateway, and the Cloud Key all in one package.  The latter being the most significant as this is something that has deterred new users from getting started with Unifi.  Requiring new users to purchase a $100 item just to run the AP's has been somewhat of a roadblock in the past.  Granted, that is improving every year with the ability to run it in the cloud, on a NAS, a Pi, Docker, MacOS, and of course Windows, it is still a barricade to getting up and running when manufacturers such as Eero offer simplicity in an app.

      The switch includes 4 LAN Ports and 1 WAN port.  All of which are Gigabit and security services such as IPS are rated at Gigabit speed. It's $299 in the Unifi store but I'm unsure how nicely it will play with other Unifi gear.  This may be a nice "first AP" with its built in Cloud Key if you can add additional units or other Unifi access points.
