Livedrive is an online backup service owned by j2 Global, Inc. Livedrive itself is based in London, England, however j2 Global is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.

Livedrive claims to have been in business 6 years and have over one million current subscribers. That’s no small feat for any company. Is this a service you should use to back up and sync your files? With the recent release of version 3, we decided to take another look at this popular backup service.

Cloud backup appsBacking up your data is important for any iPhone user. This can be done using iTunes and iCloud. iTunes handles the local backups, and iCloud handles the cloud backups. However, not everyone wants to use iCloud, due to concerns about the privacy of data stored on Apple’s servers. It can also be easier to use the same service to back up iOS devices that you use to back up desktop computers, and iCloud doesn’t support Linux or Android.

Warning: Dupplica is having unknown problems with their service, and I would not recommend you sign up at this time. (June 9, 2016)
