Sponsored: Who has your back when your gadget crashes?

You won’t understand until it happens to you. How often have you heard that before? For so many things, we’re slow to respond to the countless warnings we’re given.

And then, it happens. The worst thing imaginable. Your phone freezes up or takes a dunk under water, and everything you’ve stored on it is gone.

Because we realize that this could happen to anyone at any time, we’re spreading the word about IDrive. Not only is IDrive a sponsor of The Kim Komando Show, it’s also the best data backup service out there.

Who has your back?

It’s good to know that if something bad were to happen, somebody has your back. CrashPlan customers can’t say that about their backup service. Just recently, CrashPlan announced it would be shutting down its Home product (the one designed for consumers), and shifting its focus only to businesses.

Carbonite, a longtime sponsor of the show, did the same thing last year, which is why we could no longer recommend them to our many readers and listeners. As more and more backup services turn their attention to “bigger fish,” who’s watching out for us little guys? Is our data any less important?

While you may not have an entire server room you need to back up, IDrive recognizes that the data you are storing on all of your devices is extremely important to you. It also understands there are many things threatening the safety of your data each day. Click here for nine unexpected ways you could lose all of your data almost instantly.

No one ever plans to lose all their data. It just happens, and it’s usually completely unexpected. From drops and spills to theft and software upgrades, your data is more vulnerable than you realize. Oh, yeah…and did we mention there’s also the potential threat of ransomware

Unlike most backup services that charge per computer or device, IDrive lets you backup data on every internet enabled device on one account. This means you get one account for your computers, laptops, tablets, phones as well as your online accounts like Facebook and Instagram. IDrive also offers Snapshots, which lets you go back to a specific point in time in your archives.

This tool is essential if you want to protect yourself from losing everything to a ransomware attack. 

Plus, plans start at just $5.95 per month for 2TB of storage. So, why take the chance of losing all your files to an unexpected catastrophe? For less than your morning cup of coffee, you can have peace of mind and know that an easy backup recovery is available, whenever and wherever you need it. 

Don’t go another day without covering your bases and protecting your data with IDrive’s Universal Backup. As a listener of the Kim Komando show you can save even more! Click here to save 50% on 2 TB of cloud backup storage when you use promo code KIM at checkout!
