I have trialled many online backup services and DriveHQ beats the rest for sure.


Although I use an alternative app for disk image backup and management. DriveHQ is exceptionally good for:

* Online, real-time backup, particularly of documents.
* Ease of use, intuitive client apps, v.good
* Restore in the event of a problem v.easy
* Reliable, never had a problem with server outage.
* Very good web-based facility with file drag/drop.
* Can FTP no problem.
* Excellent mobile app (iPhone), I use it as a DropBox for easily getting documents onto my phone.
* Overall quality, never hangs or crashes.
* Not very intrusive or resource intensive.
* Perform v.well.
* The account also comes with free email and website hosting.


* Client backup app; although it handles versioning, not much control over backup type ie. full or incremental.
* A tad on the pricey side, compared with many freebies, DriveHQ doesn't give much away. Once Google enable FTP access, I think with the cheap storage available DriveHQ will have to re-think their price plan or lose custom.
* Billing system is rocket science, can be confusing.
* A database backup facility would be nice.

On balance; an excellent, highly polished backup system!

In summary, I would recommend Drive HQ to a friend.
