Editors' review

DriveHQ is the perfect backup program for those unavoidable system crashes, which make you lose important data.

Once you register with an e-mail address and create a password, the program makes an online folder for specific important files. You then set up a backup folder, and DriveHQ automatically backs up data, even as you change it in real time. This way, in the event of a system crash, you can always retrieve your latest work online once you're up and running again.

Other backup features include scheduled backups, a guide for backing up e-mail, support for file version history, and file transfer encryption. The incremental backup, surprisingly, didn't slow down system processes, although your system may vary. Navigation comes easy with the uncluttered tabbed interface.

This program only offers 1GB of storage space for free, plenty for most written document folders, but a subscription service lets you add more space for a price.

    "Only 1G of space. Doesn't tell you up front,"

    Version: DriveHQ Online Backup Enterprise Edition 5.0.375

    Pros

    Great for someone with minimal space needs.

    Cons

    The free part is only 1G of space. You have to pay for anything beyond that. I read through their info, spent time downloading it, and time fooling around with the program before this was brought up. It should be the first line of information so people know up front.

    "Great backup software, lost of other services"

    April 25, 2009   |   By wzgroup99

    Version: DriveHQ Online Backup Enterprise Edition 4.5.332

    Pros

    I tried some other popular backup service, DriveHQ Online Backup has more features and works more reliable.

    Cons

    While the Email backup is included as PST file backup, new Email Backup software is separate. I like EmailManager, it is a lot better when backing up many emails.

    Summary

    I think the product is of great quality. The only issue was with my anti-virus software. Once solved, the software is fairly easy to use.

    The upload speed is interesting, overall I am satisfied. On my ADSL connection, The max upload speed is about 50KB/sec, but the software sometimes go as fast as 400KB/sec. On average, it is still slower. than 50KB/sec, not very fast, but I know it is due to my internet speed. Still the software was able to upload 5GB of data in one weekend.

    Another nice feature is you can access your files online and share files with other people and you can use FTP, which many other companies don't have these features.

    "Nice customer service, Great backup program!"

    October 16, 2008   |   By TheIllusion

    Version: DriveHQ Online Backup Enterprise Edition 4.5.332

    Pros

    After 20GB, i subscribed 50GB (51GB) and i really like their service.

    Last year i got Vista with my new PC, and when i restored all documents, music, saved programs, etc, my all data was back without any hassle.

    Great program.

    Cons

    Vista issues that some PC's had - However, they still like to keep their own style, unique controls and non-resizable windows, what may confuse and are annoying sometimes, but you will learn it. Use your mouse and hover it. ;)

    Summary

    Please be advised, i will forward details to the Download.com stuff - if necessary, so they will see, what will happen behind doors. At this point i will recommend that you AVOID "paid" service. Highly recommend (against my older review), since they are with their promises. After all, they offer huge discounts and so on, so i will do not use Mozy, i accept their offer, now they blame me that i get to much discount, also they have massive amount of insults. I will forward those as well - If necessary.

    Our network will start fight against DriveHQ - unless they change their minds. I will keep you updated.

    But now - 03/09(09 - i will recommend, do not paid to them - anything

    After you learn DriveHQ controls, you can just forget it. Maybe uniques system, but you will learn it.

    Cons

    Some bugs - fixed now and some mysterious errors - sometimes, also unique controls and non-resizable windows may confuse and are annoying sometimes, but you will learn it ;)

    "Excellent solution for business backup"

    May 03, 2008   |   By kerryGroup

    Version: DriveHQ Online Backup 4.0.303

    Pros

    We installed DriveHQ Online Backup 4.0 to backup multiple file servers offsite. It was easy to setup a backup task to backup a local hard drive. But to backup a network drive is a little more complicated. The server computers sit in a corner with nobody logged on most of the time. So we need the backup to run when nobody is logged on; and we need it to backup network drives, and we need the backup software to send backup status email everyday.

    We contacted DriveHQ customer support; the support was excellent. Everything was smooth except backing up a network drive didn't work. We were told that the DriveHQ Online Backup service process must run as a user who have access to the network drive. After changed the service logon account in Control Panel, now everything works perfectly.

    Cons

    The solution works great for businesses. It might be a little bit complicated for consumers. But DriveHQ support is great.

    "Online Backup 4.0 works great"

    April 09, 2008   |   By acura75

    Version: DriveHQ Online Backup 4.0.303

    Pros

    Online Backup 4.0 works great for me. I like the new feature that I can log off my PC without interrupting the backup tasks. The new version is also more reliable to resume interrupted tasks. I use it to backup my laptop Outlook emails and sometimes I cannot wait for the task to finish and press the standby button. This used to cause problem with 3.8, but this version works fine

    Cons

    It was not clear the differences between FileManager and Online Backup. I thought they were the same. But I found it later that I really need both of them for different purposes.

    "A flawed upgrade"

    April 09, 2008   |   By SJVincent

    Version: DriveHQ Online Backup 4.0.303

    Pros

    I liked version 3.8 and still use it. Version 4.0 doesn't work for me. I'd recommend version 3.8 if you can still find it. (It might still be on the Australian CNet site: wwwDOTcnetDOTcomDOTau)

    Cons

    As soon as I upgraded from version 3.8 to version 4.0, my computer's boot time more or less tripled. When I reverted, my boot time returned to normal. Moreover, version 4.0 can no longer run one of my four regular backup jobs. The jobs are very similar to each other, but there is one directory on my network attached storage that it just cannot back up. It backs up other directories on the same device and version 3.8 continues to back up all directories, but no amount of fiddling could make version 4.0 do the job. Version 4.0 not recommended!
