livedrive Cloud Backup 2015 Review

Founded in 2008 livedrive for business, offers online backup, file syncing cloud storage, collaboration and sharing features and is one of our best business cloud backup services

Getting Started
livedrive-portalGetting started with Livedrive is easy, first you need to create an account, after creating your account you will be redirect to Admin Control panels which allow you to set up user accounts for each member of your team, Set up team folders, which are online storage places shared between team members. After you need to download the desktop software for Windows and Mac to install on each computer.

Features Set
livedrive offers an easy way to move your and team member data to the cloud where it will be easily accessible by web portal at any time to view or restore. Or share with your team, clients and others. The livedrive backup works in real time – so as soon as a document is saved, Livedrive will start backing it up. And each user in the company can have their own separate set of backups. But we found Livedrive Backup lacks some features like file versioning, and the ability to setup backup schedule

With Livedrive each user in your Business Account will have Briefcase. A Briefcase is private online storage that is only accessible by that user and by the Business Account administrators. A user can log in online to upload and download files to their Briefcase, but the best way to use Livedrive Briefcase is from the Livedrive Desktop Software. The software will add a new drive to their computers – a Briefcase drive – which the user can use just like any other drive. As soon as they save files there, the files are uploaded to their online Livedrive Briefcase and also sync between all of their computers – so they can take their files with them wherever they go. .

Security features are not clear. livedrive encrypts your information twice also the user can encrypt all files in my Briefcase, This means even if your computer is compromised, the files cannot be accessed when the Livedrive client is not running. livedrive security feature lacks the ability to set your own encryption key.

livedrive cloud service backup facilitates sharing in so many ways and makes the whole process safe and secure. By creating a Team Folder which is same as a Briefcase folder, but it is shared between many different users. As the Business Account Administrator, you can create as many Team Folders as you like and give users Read Only or Read/Write access. If a user is given access to a Team Folder then it will appear in the Team Folders section of the Livedrive web portal when they log in online – and they can view or upload files from there – as well as appearing in a Team Folders section of their Briefcase drive. For example a Team Folder for your Marketing team could be a great place for them to store their press releases, so that all of the team can access, edit or add to them whenever they require.

In-addition livedrive Web Sharing is a great way to share files with people outside of your business. You can share files publicly – so that anyone can see them – or privately

Livedrive give you the ability to access your data from any Smartphones with Mobile Apps (iPhone, Andriod, Windows Phone) so anything you have backed up with livedrive is available anywhere.
