http://techcrunch.com – Online backup service IDrive today announced a new service that allows its users to back up large amounts of data to the cloud. Instead of waiting around for days to upload what are often hundreds of gigabytes of data, IDrive now ships hard disks to its users so they can back up to a terabyte of data to the cloud. The users then ship the drive back to IDrive and the company enables the data on their account. After this, users can continue to use the company’s regular online backup service to send incremental updates to IDrive and, of course, restore their data from their cloud backup. Th (IT news)
