Best tool for Cloud Storage

Reviewed on 2015/09/18

We use Livedrive to help back up our information in the Cloud, gives us easy access to all the Knowledge-base we need on a daily basis and helps us manage easily all the information we need in the office or when out and about.
Great tool for managing other clients and the data they want stored in the Cloud. It worked perfectly fine on both Mac and Windows and if you're in an office with a lot of computers LAN transfers eases and speeds up the backup from one computer to another.

Pros

The business dashboard is very simple, makes user management an easy task.

Cons

You may have some types of files that for some reason don't seem to backup well. This is an issue that was reported to us by graphic designers who work with not so common type of files. However, when I brought this up to Livedrive's attention they helped us find a solution.

Powerful backuo of data in the cloud

Reviewed on 2019/07/31

Recommended for those who want to have the certainty of saving their data, but attention to the Brexit privay and above all to saving files that are not recognized by the software and which are not saved!

Pros

Simple installation and power in making online data backups, photos, office and multimedia documents, certainly not for databases and email
Possiiblity to choose folders and files to save, share or recover online
Possiiblità to decide the time of rescues from the local computer to the cloud server that can also be managed via tablet and smartphone and data transmission bandwidth via the Internet. Ample cloud space with a minimum investment that can grow over time. Data security with cryptography. English proprietary company that respects European privacy legislation, up to Brexit.

Cons

Some operating problems with software versions of the Windows operating system that require specialized interventions to solve them.

Great storage options

Reviewed on 2021/03/03

I used it for 6 or seven years. When our company scaled up it wasnt enough for us and we changed to a combination between a powerful NAS and google apps for business

Pros

it has unlimited storage so its very useful for companies whic manage large amounts of data

Cons

It s not so intuitive and the sharing options with third people doesnt work properly

easy and simple way to do your Backup

Reviewed on 2020/07/12

Very good overall experience, the software is doing what we are looking for, may be the admin console missing some features we hope to have have but it is not affecting the core of the solution or main features.

Pros

Very Easy software to use.
Upload changes to files.
can be scheduled to run every hour, 2,3....
can configure bandwidth.
can add briefcase option to directly save data to it.
can be installed on several computers with same account.
Has web access that you can upload directly to or even edit files from it.
Very good price compared to other solutions specially with paying for space used which u can assign it as u like

Cons

Admin console can show total space used and username but no advanced options or action.
cannot run backup from our end
there is no reports generated daily or weekly about backup jobs
Plus branding is easy
