Need to backup your computer files for safe keeping? The “free” plan of this up-and-coming cloud storage provider offers 10GB of free cloud storage space and a 3GB daily bandwidth limit.
Icedrive is user-friendly and can be accessed via your browser, PC/Mac or mobile device. With a simple and intuitive interface, you can backup and share files with ease.
Core features include file previews, file link sharing, folder sharing, and file versioning. One of the standout features of Icedrive is zero-knowledge encryption, but this is only available on their commercial plans.
The download/upload speeds at Icedrive are pretty fast overall and more than adequate for a free service.
You can even download a desktop app that gives you a virtual drive for easy backup and file retrieval (available for Windows, Apple Mac, and Linux). This allows you to drag and drop files into a virtual folder rather than the more cumbersome method of uploading via your Web browser.
Please note: the “free” plan of Icedrive has no collaboration features. If you need the ability to work more closely with colleagues, you may find better options elsewhere.
Commercial plans are available for a small monthly fee and include extra storage, greater bandwidth capacity, and full zero-knowledge encryption.
New features are being constantly developed so stay tuned for additional updates.
