Livedrive Backup Review
ProsLivedrive has a clean interface and some helpful tools like NAS backup
ConsBasic plan limits you from file syncing, sharing and cloud storage
Bottom LineLivedrive will over charge when it comes to basic backup. However, their Briefcase plan gives you 2TB's of sync'able storage which could be useful at $15.95/Month.
Livedrive Support Does Not Work
Absolutely the worst support I've ever had from a company. Avoid them.
Pros and Cons
Overall cost and unlimited data backup seems great but the support (or lack thereof) makes this not a very good value. I would spend a little more and get a product that is updated frequently and provides good support.
Pros and Cons
Data backup is unlimited
App available for iPhone and Smart phones
Reaching tech support can only be done via email (no phone or live chat)
Emails will not be returned on support issues
