IBackup has a proven track record of delivering the best service among all the online backup and restore services. PC World has recently rated IBackup as the `best all-round backup service’ in a review of such services.

    IBackup's online backup services include applications for interactive and automatic scheduling of backups with compression and encryption during transmission, incremental/full backups, synchronization, advanced logging and reporting. You can also backup open files with IBackup. IBackup supports backups for UNIX and Linux based computers using rsync. You can perform brick-level backups of individual mailbox and mailboxes with the application.

    To make things easy for you IBackup have a cool application called IDrive (www.ibackup.com/IBDrive_new.htm). Using this, you can map the online account as a local drive on your computer and work on the documents or data as if they are on your PC. Installing and using it is very easy and it has 128-bit support. Backup your favorite media files to your account and then hear or watch them with IDrive Multimedia (www.ibackup.com/IDrive_mmedia.htm') and create playlists or fast forward songs. You can also manage all your medial files with the ‘Media Gallery’ feature of the same application. With Web-Manager you can share these files by creating sharable links and emailing them to your buddies and partners. The `Private Share’ feature allows an IBackup account holder to instantly share portions of the account with another IBackup user. The shared data becomes immediately available to the shared user and it integrates seamlessly with the shared user’s account
