    "WARNING FRAUD"

    August 13, 2014   |   By clofstedt

    Version: DriveHQ FileManager 5.2.940

    Pros

    I can't see any

    Cons

    I have been trying to close the account for some time but their customer service refuses. They instead spam me with fake billing with increasing amounts. I only opened an account on a trial bases to test it . After a day of very slow service and not additional benefit to other very well know options I opted to cancel.

    Summary

    Having a trial they refuse to close the account and they try to get paid for services they never provided. FRAUD!!! WARNING!!!

    "Great Service!"

    December 18, 2013   |   By tech-apes

    Version: DriveHQ FileManager 5.2.361

    Pros

    I saved a lot of time and a lot of money. I had 18 sub-users and I was on Box, and after making the switch to FileManager, I saw a huge improvement in productivity. Not only can I access all my folders and data extremely quickly and easily, but it's also extremely easy to learn how to use. When I was with Box, I was paying $3,200 a year for my users. With FileManager, I only have to pay $100! Huge savings! I couldn't be happier!

    Cons

    The only thing I want to see improved is the group control. I only have 18 users so it's not too difficult to manage, but I have concerns about how it may work should I expand and require more users.

    Summary

    Couldn't be happier. So many great business options, absolutely no regrets with this software.

    "A beautiful piece of software indeed"

    October 21, 2013   |   By TechTrekk

    Version: DriveHQ FileManager 5.2.361

    Pros

    DriveHQ's filemanager revolutionized the file transfer capabilities involved within my clients day-to-day online interactions. What is even more impressive is the fact that this is just one of many magnificent features offered by the cloud IT company (and is downloadable to any DriveHQ user FREE). The software offers a dual platform interface that allows users to drag and drop batch files/folders at a time, create + manage synchronizations.
    Moreover, when it was time for the software to be updated by DriveHQ, I was worried I would lose all my synchronizations, but when I finished the uninstallation/installation all of my synchronization tasks were saved, and none of my settings were effected.

    Cons

    When I wanted to manage my group members, the software would bring me to the web browser group admin tool. It would be nice to have a group admin interface tool available on the Filemanager software.

    Summary

    The FileManager software powered by DriveHeadquarters far surpasses the client software offered by other ftp providers. As stated previously, this is just one software/feature that is brought by DriveHQ; and most of their competitors like Dropbox and GoogleDrive to not even give such an option. Rather, they map a drive directly onto your devise (which is something that DriveHQ also supports should you choose to go that route). And with competitive pricing, there is really no reason to choose those other cloud storage providers over the advanced technology and dedicated support that comes with DriveHQ.

    "Their feature set is unparalleled"

    September 29, 2011   |   By NThomlinson

    Version: DriveHQ FileManager 5.0.335

    Pros

    their online backup service is able to backup any type of file of any size, which most competitors limit in some way. Their new drop box also lets my clients upload files to me quickly. Also, support staff has been great answering my questions.

    Cons

    Connection to mapped drive cuts out at times, but I think it has to do with windows. Not sure if its just my computer. Also, it wasn't clear how to set up the group account initially.

    Summary

    Great if you don't want to spend the time and money to get an in house system set up. Doesn't have some of the limitations of its competitors.

    "Extremely impressive, two thumbs up!"

    September 18, 2011   |   By CA_CPA

    Version: DriveHQ FileManager 5.0.335

    Pros

    Lots of features, good features, and very easy: drag and drop, automatic folder synchronization, file versions, encryption, share and publish.

    Cons

    The free version has limited features.

    Summary

    I read the article,
    http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/news/internet/3233766/the-5-best-free-online-storage-services/?pn=2, which rates drivehq filemanager as one of the best free online storage service. So I decided to give it a try. I am very impressed by the software. As a matter of fact, I think the article failed to mention quite a few nice features, such as file versions, data encryption, etc.

    I would recommend the software to any business users. I am not sure if it is the best for consumers, but worth a try.

    "Works, but watch out for over-charging your account"

    July 13, 2011   |   By hyberbolic

    Version: DriveHQ FileManager 5.0.335

    Pros

    It works, GUI easy to use

    Cons

    Unethical billing practices

    Summary

    I tried the free version, which is VERY limited in functionality because it will stop allowing FTP uploads after you do maybe 3 lowres pictures from a webcam. So I went month to month for $2.50, which
    allows more uploads and online space. Then I pre-paid for a year for $30, and they started charging me twice a month, and all my credit was gone in 6 months. In numerous emails with support, they refused to admit their mistake for double-charging me.

    The problem is their billing system, which doesn't properly record orders and you don't find out about their mistakes until months down the road. It is difficult to find out what you are being charged for and your current balance, and they take it for granted that your lack of understanding their billing system is your problem, not theirs.

    The service works, but I do not do business with companies who treat their customers like a number, unless of course I don't have a vendor choice. These guys behave like a monopoly and don't realize their are plenty of other companies who offer the same service.

    "It's glorified spyware."

    January 13, 2011   |   By Adam_Laughlin

    Version: DriveHQ FileManager 5.0.335

    Pros

    It does what it says it does?

    Cons

    You need to register this with an e-mail and a password, and log in to use it. It's a growing, disturbing trend where everything we do with our computers is logged and tracked forever.

    Summary

    You can find a better way.

    "Reliable, Intuitive and Feature rich"

    March 27, 2010   |   By jonatec1

    Version: DriveHQ FileManager 4.0.284

    Pros

    I have just migrated my files over from another online storage provider because I'm really impressed with DriveHQ. In particular I like the DriveHQ File Manager, it bypasses the firewall system at work and enables me to access my files anywhere.

    Cons

    Need a facilities to:
    * Move a file to another folder.
    * Embed a video file in a web page.
    * Get a URL link to a file.

    Summary

    It seems to be reliable and handles breaks in the internet connection very well. I think reliability is important, it builds confidence in the product. Despite the lack of links to a file, (as mentioned in "Cons" above), the UI is easy to use, certainly compared to the online file storage system I used before. I like the fast way to check account balance and details, that's useful.

    "Free and good"

    February 26, 2010   |   By beatodermatt

    Version: DriveHQ FileManager 4.0.284

    Pros

    It works and is reliable.

    Cons

    I have cable with Bigpond, which has an very slow upload speed and it takes ages to upload files. But this is not the products fault.

    Summary

    In the Millenium of Google, it is another useful alternative.

    "Abysmal upload speeds."

    January 18, 2009   |   By namrebo

    Version: DriveHQ FileManager 4.0.284

    Pros

    Good software, easy to use.

    Cons

    My average upload speed is a ridiculous 8Kb/s. DriveHQ has become unusable. It is useless. I switched to IDrive and now upload at a glorious 708 Kb/s.

    Summary

    My only complaint is the appalling upload speed, so low that DriveHQ has become useless. I emailed and received a useless generic reply. I believe DriveHQ has had its day.
