I’ve written about ADrive before here. For some time now, it’s been trouncing the other free online file storage services in terms of sheer capacity offered at no cost. It continues to offer 50GB of storage for free, while many other free services max out at 1GB to 5GB (even GMail gives you more than that). Now, ADrive is offering a low-cost paid service that adds features to the free service, with new features being slipstreamed in.
For a few reasons, many web workers may want to check the fee-based service out.
ADrive is offering a service for $6.95 a month that can erase some of the headaches you commonly run into with free online storage plans. In particular, you can upload files of up to 2GB. That’s well beyond the 50MB limits you see at a lot of the storage services. At 2GB upload file sizes, ADrive is even a feasible storage solution for video files that aren’t too large in size.
ADrive has also integrated the Zoho Document Editor so that you can edit files online. This is probably a nod to Box.net and some of the other services that have intelligently reached out to web-based applications people can use in conjunction with the files they store online.
Among other offerings, ADrive is also offering remote file transfer features and a desktop backup client. Like local backup software that you may use, you can schedule automated, regular backups with the client. Especially if you collaborate with other web workers online, ADrive’s $6.95 a month service is worth a look.
