DrivePop Gone?

Recommended Posts

indiggio

Logged into my WHS console and up popped a dialog asking me to log into DrivePop.

 

After several attempts, no joy.

 

Took to twitter and see many are also in the same boat.

Those of us that bought a lifetime service got ripped off.

 

Contacted LiveDrive who just forwards me back to DrivePop.

 

Live & learn, crash & burn...

It sure is.  I've been getting emails from them for about a month saying that access was being pulled.  In other words, so is your content.  I got one last message from them on Saturday saying there was about 12 hours left.

Guess the business model didn't hold water...

Yea, free or nearly free usually doesn't pay much.

Yeah, unfortunately, I was suspicious that this wouldn't be viable. Fortunately, data caps from my ISP made it easy for me to avoid trying DrivePop.

What are others using as a resonable alternative for cloud backup?

"Critical" data?

Not so critical that it couldn't be replaced with another copy that I have elsewhere (personal images, videos).

Other stuff can be recovered (music), but wouldn't be fun.
