Tim wants to synchronize his data to a backup drive. Leo says that file sync for backup is better than just a conventional backup because it won't duplicate data. How can he do it with iDrive? Leo says that's how iDrive works! Once it does the first initial backup, then it syncs changes.
Chris recently let his Carbonite expire. Is iDrive an alternative? Leo says that both are good, but they're both advertisers. So to be fair, Leo only does ads for services and products he believes in. But Carbonite is moving towards enterprise backup and might be leaving the consumer end behind. iDrive, by contrast, is ideal for individuals and will allow you to backup anything up to 5TB. =
Duke is looking to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 without losing his data when he does so. Leo says you can upgrade to Windows 10 from within your computer running Windows 7 without losing your data or having to backup it up. Alternatively, you can do a clean install of Windows 10 by downloading the Windows 10 installer from Microsoft onto a USB drive.
Duke is also wondering which service he should use to back up his data to the cloud. Leo recommends iDrive, who is a sponsor of The Tech Guy radio show.
