How does it work?
Once you receive the temporary storage device, backup all your data using theIDrive Express application and ship the device back to us.
We will transfer your data from the device onto IDrive’s primary storage devices. You can then proceed with incremental backups through the online backup process.
Once you request for the retrieval of data, all of your data is taken from the IDrive servers and saved to a temporary storage device. It is then shipped to you.
All you need to do is plug the drive into your computer via the USB cable and restore your data to your system using the IDrive Express application. You must return the storage device that we send you after you upload your data.
