Interested in this, however I was to backup files which are on a NAS drive. According to the Livedrive website, they say that this can be done but for an additional cost of €6 per month. Is this available in the PCWorld package?

You pick what folders you want to back up. From the control panel you can remove computers but keep the data so I would assume as you rebuild computers you could remove te old one and add the new ones.

Normally € 180 but was on general offer last weekend for € 90. I've kept that open for another short while to regular contributors / posters

t it is very expensive, I can't remember how much.

You also pay per NAS device.

I tried this and you can add it to your account bu

what speed are you getting with your uploads?



Hi Random, THe upload speed is very slow, I have had my laptop connected almost continually since last weekend and I would say at best it is half synchronised. It is hard to tell as the software flags all the files on the PC that it has identified for upload but when you look they are not there. This is with a connection to a university network.

My home machine is experiencing similar delays and I am connected to UPC 25MB with 2.5MB upload.

I will provide more details when I the upload is complete.

Is it possible to use this as storage for my 'Docs to Go' on my IPAD?
(I.e. as clou storage for documents.) if so, I'm in. :)

It has an iPad app, however I would go to livedrive.com site to check if it is the product for you. You can download a 2 week trial and they have an ipad app also.

I had issues with upload speed although the livedrive helpdesk seemed supprised at the speed problems. Just in case it was due to an issue with my computer / ISP I would recommend trying out livedrive (www.livedrive.com) first to see how it works with your computer / ISP.

I would also do a restore as part of the test to ensure that it has backed up your files correctly.

We don't but we're new to this and learning. I think it would be a clever idea. I'm feeding baca lot of detailed feedback I've already had to the head honchos on it across the pond and I'll drop this idea in too
