August 23, 2019

Data archiving is important not only for recordkeeping but also required by businesses in order to be compliant to various federal mandates while dealing with sensitive and private information. However, archiving data files within hard drives isn't really a great idea. You never know, in the unfortunate event of fire or theft, everything can be lost in a matter of minutes! So how can you ensure that each of your file is archived and you are always on point with your data? Well, IDrive online backup comes to your rescue here!

The 'True Archiving' feature in IDrive cloud backup helps you store your files on your cloud account for as long as you want and restore them when needed, even after years! With IDrive online backup, even if you accidentally or intentionally remove a file from your computer, it will always remain on the cloud. Also, IDrive online backup allows you to restore up to 10 previous version of the same file.

Enjoy The 'Versioning' Advantage!
Whenever you backup a file to your cloud backup account, IDrive keeps versioning them. This way, even if you find a version of a file corrupt, you can restore a version prior to infection from your cloud backup account. You can restore up to 30 previous versions of the same file. However, you might not find these files if you have manually deleted it or used the 'Archive Cleanup' feature.

What Is Archive Cleanup?
Archive Cleanup is an option in the IDrive online backup application which lets you delete the files you don't need, from your cloud account. The option, compares the files of your cloud backup account to the existing files on your backup set, and then deletes the ones that are there in your cloud and not on your backup set.
