CALABASAS, Calif., May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pro Softnet Corporation, maker of the popular IDrive online backup service, today announced that users of its IDrive Macintosh client software version 1.4.2 now enjoy full support for Apple Time Machine backups. Once the Time Machine folder is selected for backup to the IDrive online account, IDrive automatically keeps the latest Time Machine data protected for a redundant backup. If the local Time Machine backup becomes lost or corrupted, individual files/folders, or the entire Time Machine backup can be restored back to the Mac.
What's more, the new Rapid Serve program offered by IDrive allows large restores to occur via an IDrive Portable Hard Drive. IDrive Portable is a high performance 320GB portable USB hard drive available for purchase from IDrive.com. After purchase, the IDrive Portable drive is loaded with the customer's most recent Time Machine backup and shipped free for a hassle-free restore using Apple's Migration Assistant.
IDrive is regarded as a premium online backup service and currently protects over 750,000 users with more than 15 Petabytes of user data backed up. IDrive offers reliable, secure online backup for consumers and businesses of all sizes with service plans to fit any budget. With the advent of faster Internet connections, more consumers and businesses are pushing their backups to the cloud as a way to safeguard memories, content, and critical information from catastrophic loss.
"Many Mac owners use Time Machine to keep their important files protected," said Raghu Kulkarni, CEO for Pro Softnet Corporation. "Now IDrive can keep Time Machine backups doubly secure by keeping a copy in the online storage account, which is a prudent strategy in the event a disaster wipes out the Mac & the hard drive with the local backup. The new Rapid Serve program gets restores done quickly by shipping a hard drive to the user instead of waiting on the Internet."
Pricing & Availability
IDrive online backup accounts range from 5GB of storage absolutely free to unlimited storage plans for $49.95, and many options in between. IDrive Portable hard drives carry a one-time price of $69.95 and include free shipping in the US. IDrive for Mac users who don't have version 1.4.2 of the Mac client can download it for free.
