Take a look at IBackup . IBackup has a large number of powerful features for easy backups and restores of critical data. IBackup is like an extra hard drive right on your computer and it allows you to store your important documents and files securely online. It also protects you from data loss caused by system crash, drive failures, virus attack and theft. You can store your files and retrieve them from any computer no matter where you are.

IBackup for Windows can do interactive backup and restore and also schedule regular online backups for Windows desktops, laptops and servers. IBackup accounts are compatible with most FTP clients on most platforms providing a powerful flexible tool to transfer files. IBackup supports backups for UNIX and Linux-based computers using rsync.

IDrive enables you to map the IBackup online storage account as a local drive on your computer. You can then drag-and-drop, edit and save files in your online backup account using IDrive. Backing up multimedia files is very easy with IBackup. I use their application called IDrive Multimedia for this purpose. All that is needed is to simply move the multimedia files to the IBackup account and then play them with IDrive Multimedia. You will get instant streaming and you can do fast forward also.

You can share files and folders by creating sharable links with ‘Web-Manager’ and emailing these links to others. You can also password protect your files and folders, so that they can only be viewed by people who are supposed to view them. You can even `privately share’ data instantly with another IBackup user with Web-Manager. The private share feature can be disabled at any time.
