If We Cancel Our Plan, Who Owns Our Backups?

You will always own the backups and data. When a plan is cancelled, we leave a 30 day window for clients to move all of their data off the server and get confirmation before deactivating the account. If an account is deactivated, we do have the ability to reactivate and usually can help people retrieve their data. We strongly encourage moving backups to a different location at the end of a contract.

What Is The Difference Between File Backup and File Storage?

Software like Dropbox is a central file storage location. If someone were to delete your Dropbox folder, you would need to look for those files in a backup solution, this is backup. If your Dropbox account accidentally violated terms and was no longer able to access the internet, your files are backed up in a different location. This serves as a back up to get files that have been lost or destroyed.

LiveDrive uses about 35MB of Memory. On a regular 8GB of RAM computer, that is only 0.43% and shouldn’t have a large impact. The first backup may slow down the internet speed as it is using a lot of upload bandwidth to get the files backed up to the cloud.
