One of the ways to ensure the safety of your valuable data is maintaining multiple backups in various locations. Keeping backups at home only might be insufficient as you may lose all the data in case of fire or natural disaster. Therefore, using online backup solution might be a wise portion of your strategy. Traditionally, in this section, we will overview exclusively free service offerings. However, you may want to think about paid solution as well. As you understand, the list of the options and volume of the free storage is usually limited. Besides, if service provider does not charge for the services, the commitment towards keeping your data forever are much lower.
In this post, we will present one of the services, offering free online storage for your files – ADrive. ADrive’s Basic plan offers individual users 50GB of online storage and backup for all file types including access to our basic service features, all for FREE. ADrive offers complete and secure solutions to store, backup, share, access, and edit files from virtually anywhere, at any time. ADrive serves as an online, centralized vault for all important file types including: music, videos, photos, documents, and more.
The account might be used also to share big files, or collections of your files, with your friends and family. After uploading a file, you will have several options when you right click on the file or view the options at the bottom of the page. One of them is “Share”. This will move the file to your "My Shared Files" directory and a unique web link will be generated that you can share with anyone on the Internet. The recipient of this shared file just has to click the link to download. You can also use our email-a-friend feature. Just right click on your shared file and click on the “Email A Friend” button, enter the email of your friend, and the email will be sent to your friend shortly including the link to download the shared file.
