There are so many online storage services offering free space these days it’s a miracle anyone but the big boys can sell enough to survive. ElephantDrive is just another option, except this is one that blurs the lines between cloud storage and online backup. While online backup is designed to easily get data in, the return journey isn’t usually quite so easy. It’s also true that users looking for a way to sync documents don’t necessarily want all their backup items on every computer – ElephantDrive solves this.
By using a two folder system, and one overall pool of space, ElephantDrive satisfies both the needs of cloud evangelists and those concerned about their archived data. Put something in the “Backup” folder for it to be saved to the cloud, with easy access using a web browser or mobile device. Conversely, save an item to the “Everywhere” folder and it will automatically sync on all your devices, just like traditional cloud storage.
ElephantDrive has desktop clients for Mac OS X and both 32-bit and 64-bit variants of Windows as well as an Android app, though at present there is no solution for Linux or iOS users. Personal plans start from $9.95 per month for 100GB of space available for access across three devices.
- A mobile cloud storage solution and backup service in one.
- 2GB of free space included with the free account.
- Works on Windows, OS X and Android OS.
- Works with NAS drives to backup your network storage.
