  1. It was PC World that drew me towards IBackup. I was not satisfied with Streamload, another online backup service I was using, and I tried IBackup free trial.

    The free trial itself was impressive. The positive thing about IBackup is even free trial users can call up their tech support and clarify doubts. So naturally the IBackup test-drive I had with IBackup progressed and I now literally have made my data under lock and key in IBackup’s data centers. IBackup is different from Carbonite in some aspects as the latter does not allow backups of files larger than 2GB.

    IBackup online backup is designed for everybody and the simple installation process, user friendly and flexible account plans, makes it an unavoidable online data management solution. Remember IBackup runs and is available 24/7, you can restore data 100 percent of the time and data is encrypted and protected from unauthorized access in their data centers.
