Andrew founded Fasthosts Internet Limited, The United Kingdom’s premier and most successful Internet service provider which was sold in 2006 for in excess of $120m 聊天室. Andrew commented: “Online storage is the future. Lots of companies are trying to do it today but the products are crap and not a replacement for traditional storage methods. LiveDrive has been over two years in the making and will be the standard by which all competing products are judged”. LiveDrive offers two options: LiveDrive Backup and LiveDrive Briefcase (Pro). The Backup edition can backup of unlimited online devices and an unlimited quantity of files. The Briefcase or Pro edition retains all the features of the Backup version but also gives sharing and synchronization of data from unlimited online devices.
LiveDrive uses 128bit SSL encoding to their web site along with password protection for your account.

Open files will also backed up on a regular basis and because of the ‘block level incrementation’ technology just the amended bits of files are uploaded and these are then used to create a new version of the file. This method massively reduces the amount of information that must be uploaded. Network drives and removable devices such as pen drives or other plug-and-play products can also be backed up. A progress indicator is included status messages so you know what is being backed up and what is awaiting to be transmitted.
You are allowed to restore up to 30 different editions of any file that has been archived by entering the web site, selecting the file you wish to restore and selecting the edition of the file by means of date and time. When selected simply decide where you would like the file restored to and the portal will start the restore process. separate upload and download throttling controls in the desktop client but no processor controls.
