DrivePop Gone?

Recommended Posts

I'd use One Drive for Documents and copy music and such to portable hard drives for off site storage.  Are you an Amazon Prime member?  If so, the music can go there

Jim Colison made a excellent observation in a recent home server show podcast. One Drive is good but you generally don't have versioning of files or protection from deletion

 

On a number of times, it has been very useful to pickup a older version or recover a file that I deleted months ago.

 

So although I was on the fence, I still use crash plan for my personal and business docs

 

For media , I copy to a local drive and crash plan to my brother in another state

Funny, I already do some of that.  Use OneDrive w/ Boxcryptor for really critical stuff and multiple USB drives for WHS backups.

 

I was thinking about Google as they now allow like 50k songs to be uploaded or something like that.

 

Thx!

Supposedly (according to Tweet), they're looking into refunding, so send them an e-mail to support (at) drivepop.com. 

 

Definitely no guarantees...

@AL -- I found out to my happy surprise that you can recover deleted files from OneDrive

I use Acronis Cloud Backup. I can image my entire system and restore my entire system or individual files. It also supports versioning. I picked up 1 year 3 computers unlimited backup for $80.00 last December. Newegg just had a sale and I picked up another license for $60.00.

 

There have been some slow performance issues with their server. Fortunately, Acronis rectifies them quickly and here lately it has been very reliable.

if it is for backup and not storage I have been completely satisfied with Crashplan.

Amazon CloudDrive works pretty well I think (I've not used it's actual client, only for it's .... API access for another program!)

 

It's $60/year for "unlimited" storage. And most importantly, it is from Amazon.

I looked at the CloudDrive "learn more" information and I didn't see anything about encryption.

If you store data on their site it appears that everything is stored "in the clear"?

That seems like a bad idea to me...

Interesting. I never heard of Amazon CloudDrive but I've learned to trust Amazon and $60/yr unlimited in a steal. Their S3 service was t very economic for home use. I find it hard to believe they don't offer encryption. If they did I'd consider migrating to this from Crashplan.
