For $40 a year, staff and students can get 1 TB (that’s 1000 gigabytes) of “cloud” backup space for their home computer (PC or Mac), Android devices, iPhones or iPads! iDrive can be used on an unlimited number of devices. For every paid subscription iDrive receives from Maryville R-II, it will give a portion back to the district.
iDrive is an offsite backup, which is not the same thing as “Dropbox.com” or “iCloud” type services. While you can search through your backups and recover an individual file, you would not want to use iDrive for day-to-day file storage. The purpose of a backup is for disaster recovery and is a good idea for anyone who has important documents, pictures, or files on their computer.
