BeeCloud

BeeCloud is a reseller of LiveDrive online backup.  They offer great deals and LiveDrive is a great company to use as the backbone of your online backup.  However, there’s always the chance that they could turn into another Backify.

They offer 512Gb of Free Online Backup and Storage.  Or, for just 3 Euros/month, you can get unlimited backup!  For 8 Euros you can get NAS backup or unlimited regular backup with 512GB of syncing.

BeeCloud - Packages and Prices

 

 

Select the folders you want to backup and the software will copy them to our server in background. Initial copying can take some time (depends on your bandwith), but it happens in background. Just let it run.

Keeps up to 30 revisions of a file. When you change a file, your old versions are kept online, so that you always can go back.

Works on Windows and Mac. You can access your files from your web portal (name.livedrive.com) or from your mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, Android)

Backs up only changed portions of large files (like Outlook PST files). This means that changes to these files will be backed up faster.

FTP upload / download

Same features as Backup but for NAS devices (network attached storage). Very useful if you want to backup a server (file server), or if you have tons of files on your 2 Terrabyte network hard disk.

You can only backup 1 network share per account. If you need to backup more, please contact us for pricing.

Backup up unlimited number of computers with the same account.

Have an extra drive on all your computers (L: drive) and use it to constantly sync your data between these computers. Every file you save in this drive is automatically copied to the cloud and download to your computers if you need it.

Share your files with others by inviting them. They do not need to be a LiveDrive user, they just can use the files online.

Use standard FTP software (like FileZilla) to upload/download files. You can even use standard backup software to upload files (like Comodo backup). This way you can encrypt your backups.

What is BeeCloud?

BeeCloud  is an online storage service, providing two innovative and powerful features:

 

BeeCloud  Backup – a very simple, secure and robust online backup solution. Livedrive Backup keeps a copy of your files safely online, so that if they are lost or damaged you can retrieve them quickly and easily.

 

BeeCloud Drive – a place to put the files you use most regularly, and access them absolutely anywhere. Livedrive Briefcase appears as a new drive on your PC, and you can use it just like any other drive, but your Briefcase files are also copied online and you can view or edit them from any web browser. If you install Livedrive Briefcase on more than one computer, all of the files are the same on every PC, and changes you make on one machine are replicated across all of your other computers.

 

When you sign up for BeeCloud you can purchase BeeCloud  Backup just by itself, or BeeCloud Backup & Drive to get all of BeeCloud’s great features in one package.

 

Where are my files stored?

BeeCloud uses LiveDrive Internet technology and infrastructure.

Your files are usually stored both on your own computer and in Livedrive’s state-of-the-art data centers. By storing your files in both places you can be sure that you have access to your files and can use them as normal even when you’re not online.

 

Livedrive have built our own data centers, so that we have complete flexibility to make them as secure, responsive and efficient as possible. They use cutting edge, military grade technology to make sure that your data is both safe and highly accessible. Our main data center is in London, UK.

 

 

What does unlimited storage space mean?

 

Unlimited storage space means that you can put as much as you want on your Livedrive without worrying about it. Many of our customers store hundreds of gigabytes, some store over a terabyte. We don’t limit the amount you backup or the amount you store, nor do we limit the amount you upload or download to the Livedrive servers (the bandwidth). You really can use Livedrive as much as you want.

 

Do you ever limit bandwidth or transfer speeds?

 

No – there are not any limits on how much bandwidth you can use each month. Nor are there limits on the speed of your transfers beyond the natural limits of technology –our data centers have super fast connections. Unlike some other providers we don’t punish you for making use of our service by throttling your bandwidth just because you store a lot.

 

Will BeeCloud use my data ?

 

BeeCloud will never use or look at your data. You own the data/files and you are responsible for it. We do register the amount of data that you use, so we can warn you if you reach the limit (very unlikely).

 

How secure is BeeCloud?

 

BeeCloud is very secure. Our data centers use military-grade technology to keep your files encrypted and safe. We support SSL transfers between your PC and our servers too, so there’s no risk of people intercepting your data while it is uploaded or downloaded.

 

All of the data that you put on Livedrive is backed up redundantly across multiple locations, so it is fully protected against hardware failure or other damage.

 

Why do I need Livedrive?

 

Over 60% of users have lost irreplaceable data from their computer. The files you store on your computer – photos, music, videos, emails and documents – are increasingly precious, but they’re so easy to lose. Hard drive failure, fire, theft or even just accidental user error can wipe out highly important content in seconds.

 

Before Livedrive you could only back up your data to CDs, DVDs, external drives or even backup tape, but all of this takes effort, you need to remember to do it, and they’re about as susceptible to failure, loss and damage as the PC itself.

 

Livedrive gets rid of this problem completely by providing a simple, secure and robust online backup solution. Just install it, select which folders you want to backup and forget about it. There’s no need to schedule your backups or leave your PC on overnight – it backs up your files as you work. There’s no limit on how much you back up either, so it’s completely hassle free.

 

Livedrive Briefcase takes this one step further by setting your files free and letting you access them wherever you are. See the same files on every computer you use – you can use them just like any other file on your computer, but if you change them, they will automatically change on all of your other PCs. View and even edit your documents online from any web browser anywhere. Even access your files on your go from your mobile.

 

 

Where can I get a Livedrive account?

 

Just sign up at www.beecloud.eu. It takes minutes to get a fully featured free account – you don’t even need to enter your credit card number.

 

 

Which operating systems does Livedrive support?

 

The Livedrive desktop software runs on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. There is software available for Mac.

 

The Livedrive web portal can be used by all of the major web browsers, including Internet Explorer 7 or later, Firefox 2 or later and Safari 3 or later. Some features on the web portal require recent versions of Java or Flash.

 

The Livedrive mobile portal can be used by most mobile web browsers, including Opera. There is dedicated support for iPhone,android and Blackberry users.

 

 

Can the Desktop Software run from a FAT32 drive?

 

Drives can be configured in many different formats. Most modern drives are configured in a format called NTFS, but some drives use a much older format called FAT32. Although the Livedrive Desktop Software can be configured to store its cache on a FAT32 drive, it is recommended that you use an NTFS-formatted drive instead if possible. This is because the Livedrive Desktop Software stores information about your files in a folder on your chosen cache drive, and FAT32 is limited to 15,000 files per folder. This means that if you put a lot of files on your Briefcase, or backup a large number of files with Backup, then the Livedrive Desktop Software will stop syncing correctly.

 

When installing Livedrive on your PC, the Desktop Software will try to select an NTFS drive to use by default. If you try to select a FAT32 drive instead, the installer will warn you.

 

Note that this will not affect the folders that you choose to backup with Livedrive Backup. If you want to backup files on a drive that’s formatted in FAT32 then you will experience no problems at all, as long as your Livedrive cache is on an NTFS drive.
