Macworld: IDrive adds syncing service to online backup plans

03/28, 5:26pm

Sync and backups kept separate, optionally encrypted

Online backup storage service IDrive has revamped its plans to offer more space, and a new separate sync service -- and to celebrate, it will give current and new users the same amount of sync space as they use for backups at no additional charge. The new service allows users to sync files in real time across all linked devices (on Macs, PCs or mobile devices) as well as their separate IDrive account. The sync feature can optionally be protected with private-key encryption if desired.
