      Dropbox vs IDrive opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman Dropbox does not offer end-to-end encryption and so does not protect your data from ransomware or any hackers that might breach their servers (and this has happened before). Dropbox also stores your data in a way that's readable to them, which means they have to hand it over when asked for it for government surveillance. This is not a problem for iDrive if you use the private key option because then only you can read your stuff.

      Google Drive vs IDrive opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman Google Drive does not offer end-to-end encryption and therefore does not protect your data from ransomware. Google also stores your data in a format readable to them, which they can (and do) harvest your private data and hand it over when asked for it by government surveillance. This is not a problem for iDrive if you use the private key option because only you can read your stuff.

      MediaFire is the simple solution for uploading and downloading files on the internet. It focuses on providing a positive experience for downloaders, but does not offer an affiliate program for uploaders.


    4. Yandex.Disk is a free cloud storage service that gives you access to your photos, videos and documents from any internet-enabled device. Download the app to your phone or tablet and you'll literally be able to carry your files with you everywhere.
    5. SpiderOak provides an easy, secure and consolidated online backup, storage, access, sharing & sync tool for Windows, macOS, and Linux (Ubuntu, Debian & Fedora). SpiderOak offers a different approach to online backup, synchronization, and sharing.
      Spideroak One Backup vs IDrive opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman iDrive is about backup more than it is about sync (you backup your own data and sync your own computers, rather than sync with those of others). SpiderOak does the same. Importantly, both have "zero-knowledge" setups to ensure that no one except you - not even they - can see the data you are storing on their servers. SpiderOak is probably more established/reliable, iDrive has the superior mobile app (can backup your phone, not just download). iDrive has no Linux client.

    6. Sync makes it easy to store, share and access your files from just about anywhere.
      Sync.com vs IDrive opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman Sync.com is more about syncing Dropbox-style but with encryption/privacy in mind. iDrive is more about backing up your computer and files than about syncing with others (although you can sync between your own computers). Both implement strong encryption to ensure privacy is much much better than Dropbox, GoogleDrive. Neither Sync.com nor iDrive are convenient for Linux users.

      iCloud vs IDrive opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman The whole point of iDrive, Tresorit, SpiderOak and Sync.com is that they offer a zero-knowledge model based on encryption which prevents even the company from viewing user files. iCloud is NOT like that; files stored with iCloud can be viewed by Apple, subpoenad by the US govt and stolen in readable format by hackers. Go with encryption if you value your privacy.
