Are there free backup options to iDrive?

Episode 1706 (1:30:04)

John from Moorpark, CA
iDrive

John wants to know if he needs iDrive anymore when he also has Microsoft One Drive. Leo says that the problem with One Drive is that it only syncs whatever you put in the dedicated folder. iDrive, by contrast, backs up everything and has versioning, or multiple versions of the same file. DropBox is starting to do that as well. iDrive also has a snapshot feature, which will take a snapshot of your drive that you can restore to should your drive get compromised. There's another option called SyncThing, which will restore and sync any folder between different computers. It's open-source, free, and doesn't put your data in the cloud. But whether it's secure, only time will tell.
