Sure, you likely won’t be able to travel to any fun landmarks this Christmas. But you’ll probably still take a lot of photos with your family around the Christmas tree. You’ll want to share all those photos too — and that’s where the tech troubles kick in.

If you’ve ever tried to share large photos through email, you know it can be a total headache. If you have too many photos, you get an error message that basically amounts to: “Tough luck, bud.”

Now, let me tell you about the best way to send photos. IDrive allows you to back up all your PCs, Macs and mobile devices into ONE account. That means everything you need is in one convenient and easy-to-share spot — no more racking your brain for ways to compress photos into one easy email.

Here’s the best part. Kim’s got a special offer just for Komando readers:  Save 90% on 5 TB of cloud backup.

It’s your best option for sharing photos quickly and safely

With a single IDrive account, all your data is 100% secure. You can sync files in real-time, remotely manage your computers with data backups and even back up your databases — without interrupting any of your services.

Your data is protected by robust security measures, including strong encryption during data transmission and storage and password data protection. If that weren’t enough, they also use world-class data centers with restricted physical access. That’s when you know your data is taken seriously!

IDrive uses bullet-proof 256-bit AES encryption to protect your data during transfer and storage. Basically, this means your files are scrambled before they get uploaded to IDrive’s cloud servers. They’ll stay encrypted until you access them.

Even better: IDrive offers an option that will ensure the utmost privacy — a personal encryption key. By creating your own private key that not even IDrive has access to, no one but you can access your files.

Here’s how to share your pictures

With IDrive, say goodbye to the hours you’d otherwise waste trying to figure out how to email your photos. Now, you’ll create a unique sync folder on every computer you choose to link to the IDrive system.

From there, you can sync all your files. You can also sync them directly through your mobile app. Just drag and drop photos from your computer to IDrive’s Sync folder. They’ll automatically sync to your IDrive account and other linked devices.

Now you’re ready to start sharing your photos. Here’s exactly what to do:

  1. Right-click the file or folder, and tap on IDrive
  2. Select Share this file / Share this folder

From there, you’ll be redirected to your web account. Then, you can start sharing photos over email!

Say goodbye to the days of tearing out your hair trying to compress huge files into an email. With IDrive, it’s as easy as Christmas pie. Plus, it’s so affordable: Save 90% on 5 TB of cloud backup now!
