IDrive Time-Line Restore, Sort of an Online 'Time Machine' for the Windows Platform

IDrive, a leading online backup service provider, today announced that IDrive online backup has introduced a new functionality called 'Time-Line Restore' that lets users restore all the selected data from a point in time.

While IDrive always had the versioning capability where an individual file can be restored from any one of the 30 available versions, having a capability to restore a set of files/folders from a particular point in time provides an added advantage. This lets users restore related data from a point in time.

"This is similar to the 'Time Machine' or the 'Snap Shots' concept applied to the Windows platform. Often users have related data whose status changes as a unit based on time and there is a need to be able to restore data as a unit with a time reference," said Raghu Kulkarni, President and CEO of Pro Softnet Corp.

IDrive continues to update its offering with functional and performance improvements. Based on internal tests and some professional reviews conducted recently, IDrive outperforms the competition by a significant factor in both backups and restores. Performance is a key factor, especially for online backup where large amounts of data have to be pushed through a thin internet pipe available at the user end.

The advantages of the IDrive online backup service are now being recognized by major online and traditional media publications. In a recent review of online backup services by PC Pro, IDrive was also mentioned as the best performing online backup among competitors that included EMC's online backup service.

IDrive also offers a Mac version, both in Basic and Pro form (for consumers and businesses) and has been one of the few options available on the Mac platform
