Any thoughts or suggestions?
Some others seem pretty happy with iDrive in this thread:
It sounds good, but makes me a bit nervous that they are giving the service away as a promotion.
Maybe a month to get you locked in, but a year?
I also felt the promotion rubs me the wrong way. But that might just be the snobby snob in me.
Because I was interested (my 75% discount on CrashPlan for Small Business will expire soon) I searched for this deal.
Search results show that IDrive has had similar discounts (90% off) before.
I’m considering taking the offer now.
IDrive came out with a promotion for $6.95 yearly subscription for 5TB storage. Your thoughts? & thank you for sharing your expertise. It is greatly appreciated!
If you think 5TB is sufficient, they offer the features you want/need, and you trust the company to:
- protect your data from intruders
- not exploit your data for their own gain
- exist long enough to actually be useful
then go for it. It looks like others around here have.
Fine print says, you must show proof that you’re paying for a competitor’s plan.
Did you find that to be true? There are no details on how you have to prove it.
Well I have to say I should have kept with if is not broke DON’T Fix it. I would highly recommend that Nobody use Backblaze as it is the most evasive software since MacKeeper.
Ok so there is absolutely no idea what is being backup and I was unable to get the detail granularity that I am able to get from iDrive so this was my reason to stop using Backblaze.
Step 1. I had deleted my credit card payment info and then I was getting notifications that there was not credit card information to back up
Step 2. I used CleanMyMac to Uninstall the Software from my Mac. Then I was still getting notices.
Step 3. I logged on the Backblaze website and deleted all user Licenses and Backup instructions. Still getting notices
Step 4. I logged on the Backblaze account and deleted emails and account and now still getting notices like this…
So I think that I encountered my first virus. If this persists I will contact Backblase support and threaten to make a complaint to the appropriate governmental agency that regulates these types of things. Something that I have never done in my life.
I have been using IDrive and it saved me when my Mac was stolen last year in LA so I highly recommend them and I will continue to use them and so sorry that I have tried to use Backblaze. You can read my post below about my Backblaze experience
so you decided not to use the uninstaller that BackBlaze provides?
