SAFEBERG
MYBACKUPDRIVE



FYI: LIVEDRIVE and 2 others GIVEN ME A PRESS ACCOUNT TO DEEPLY TEST HER OWN OFFERS FOR EVERY OF THESE SERVICES I WAIT THE END OF HER XX DAYS TRIAL TO BE SURE THAT IT IS NOT A HIDDEN TRIAL OFFER ;)

Requirements: trial offer refused, goal is to test regurarly and forever the main service

REVIEW OF 

As others of his competitors, MyOtherDrive is a Java application with a very nice interface.
For 5$ per month and for 100 GB of storage data, you have:
- archive and sync (differential backup),
- sharing file and/or folders,
- receive comments of your publics documents,
- optional preview images,
- direct URL download from external links (very nice!).

For the last function explained above, i have tried with a big 650 Mo ISO file but the download seems loops forever without any progression messages.
After manually forcing the close of the software, the ISO file was well present when i has restarted the program...

I have appreciated MD5 publication of every files, remaining time in upload (not in download mode ?!), e-mail sent whatever the state of the progress (of course the process must have been started before) and also the import mode of every files of two of his competitors ;)

Else, i was very surprised than scheduled backups on XP Home (Vista and W7 Home version too ?) are not directly managed by the software itself but manual launch is always possible.

Upload are about 90 KB/s (my DSL line accepts 100 KB/s) and 450 KB/s for download. Result are good enough.
Since February 2010 (last test January 2013, In March 2014 java app was broken): upload is 105, 90, 70, 110 KB/s ; download is 100, 120, 150, 80, 110, 50.

About data security storage, MyOtherDrive uses RAID 6 storage servers and backs up your data offsite in a different facility too.

We can see with this small review that MYOTHERDRIVE purpose some amazing functions for a correct price in a secure environnement.



REVIEW OF LIVEDRIVE: Ejected. GUI shows too many false informations.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR BACKUP/ARCHIVE ENTERPRISE ?
When i began to find all options of all these competitors, i think to add about 15 characteristics but in fact, i have found more than 30...
- Price ;)
- NUMBER OF VERSION HISTORY DURATION, (a copy of the X old active files versions are kept) ; IF YOU ARE NOT ON A UNLIMITED OFFER SOME X GB OFFERS INCLUDE THE STORAGE OF ACTUAL FILES + OLD FILES VERSIONS) (i.e you pay a 2 GB service, you modify 10 times one byte on a 200 MB file, your have now saturated your account ^^)
- VERSION HISTORY DURATION, (a copy of the file you have deleted is kept X days),
- IS THIS SERVICE IS A FILE ARCHIVE SERVICE OR/AND A SYNC BACKUP TOOL ? THIS NOTION IS VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU WISH TO SAVE DATAS IN LONG TERM BECAUSE IF THE SERVICE IS A SYNC BACKUP TOOL, YOU MUST ALWAYS KEEP THE DATAS ON YOUR HD ELSE THE SERVICE WILL CONSIDER YOU HAS DELETED THEM !,
- MAX FILESIZE TO STORAGE (SOME SERVICES DOES NOT SAVE BY DEFAULT MULTIMEDIAS FILES OR/AND BIG FILES GREATER THAN X GB),
- IF THIS SERVICE OFFERS UNLIMITED BACKUP, DOES IT INCLUDES EXTERNAL HD / USB PENS ?,
- UPLOAD OPEN AND LOCKED FILES,
- SOME FILES ARE NEVER UPLOADED BY DEFAULT ("Thumbs.db" for Windows ok but some files begining by "$" is abnormal !! I think to WUALA ^^ will be repaired in summer 2011 but CHECK YOUR OPTIONS TO BE SURE THAN ALL KIND OF DECENT FILES ARE SAVED BY DEFAULT !!!),
- (if you wish to send your big files to X competitors in same time) Permit to download a file from another place (you send a big file to a place, you share the file and other services can directly download files from this place;)
- Clever backup function 1 (only with filehistory service): If you accidentally delete a file and you add them later from another source, you do not need to upload the source again coz size/MD5/SHA1 checksum will recognize the file.
- Clever backup function 2 (shared deduplication): Some file extensions of every customer backup are shared between all customers and the core server detect in the backup you wish to upload some well know commons files which will be directly copied from the backup of an other customer who have already sent this file, in others words only the first customer who own the last software or OS version will upload all files and other customers does not need to upload them again (files examples of a classical windows backup which can be shared to a lot of customers: winlogon.com, winsock.dll, java.exe, skype.exe, utorrent.exe ^^, crackM$office2007.exe ^^^^ and more and more ;)
- Clever backup function 3 ("reset of point of restauration"): Buying a new PC need to generally upgrade the whole OS or only use new drivers if the new PC is based on the same OS, the hoster can purpose a function to only upload changes between your last known backup (of your old PC) and the content of the new PC. After the end of the (long) process, the hoster will consider than it can (forever?) "forget" backups of your old computer and use as a new base the first backup of new PC backup. of course, old important data who hasn't been copied on the new PC can be lost forever !
- Keep on your HD a local copy of every files which has been sent online, this permit to quickly recover a deleted file but can use a lot of disk space...
- Compress data during transfert ?,
- Incremental or differential backup (delta/block-level incremental backup ?),
- Daily, Manual or continuous-backup/CDP (all the time or during low CPU works),
- Sync data between a lot of electronic products in same time (PC, notebook, iphone...),
- Virtual Disk / Map drive letter (create a X: letter on Windows): Warn to some uncapped services as SKYDRIVE which block file changes extensions (and GDRIVE from GOOGLE with his 66 limit characters in the filename) to be sure than third-party software as GLADINET, STORAGEMADEEASY or RAPIDDRIVE.NET or SDEXPLORER use offered space ONLY for file transferts !
   In others words, ask them if this remote service purpose a virtual drive but you must know if they are no limitations as a classical hard disk or if this drive is only used as a gateway to ONLY easily upload/download, move/delete files and/or directories.
Geeks can following this link too for more technical details ;)
- Prioritize some directories and/or some extensions to be backed up,
- Upload or download thanks to a browser,
- Restore to a data range (i.e i want the backup content of yesterday at noon),
- Filters to save or restore,
- Share URL by HTTP/Facebook/internal viewer/Smartphone,
- Email/TWITTER/SMS/RSS report every day of the subcription or/and when the backup process start and stop,
- Support 24/24 online / by phone, mail, twitter, IM
- BW throttling (it is not a secret, more you use capping more your file aren't secure ;)
- A copy of the backup is keep on main computer (to increase recovery speed),
- A copy of the backup can be sent to a friend (social backup),
- Securized SSL 256 bits transfers,
- Blowfish 448 bits to crypt data,
- Private and personal encryption key (you lost it, you lost your data too...),
- Resume upload and/or downloads,
- FTP and/or WebDAV access,
- The software can be installed on X computers,
- Insurance Warranty if the enterprise closes (we guarantee data will be available X months/years after our eventual closure),
- Import data of his competitors (oh ! ;),
- Upload datas from CD/DVD, USB and networks drives,
- RAIDx hardwares / (my famous) geographical backup / secure word is not precise,
- Proxy support,
- Auto shutdown of the computer,
- Datacenter(s) state: i suppose all of them have high security access and are redundant power and internet access,
- Permit to sent or recover datas on HD, USB pen or DVD thanks to UpS/FedEx/DhL,
- Internal search files option,
- Average upload and download speed (some unlimited backup services as Carbonite reduces upload speeds after X dozens of GB...)
- Log files,
- GUI OSeS (Windows / Mac / Linux / Java...),
- Language of browser GUI,
- Language of software GUI,
- MS Outlook backups (thanks to a plug-in),
- (specific) Read (and write) e-mails which has been on backed thanks to a webmail,
- (for pro) Lotus Notes/Domino, Oracle, Exchange, MySQL backups (thanks to a plug-in),
- Migration Wizard (to recover files to a new OS),
- Priority file download (give high priority to recover some files),
- Locate my computer (display the IP of your computer in case of steal),
- Detect and alert when backup drive or directory does not exist (crash ? unplugging ?),
- A Trash folder,
- A Report in text format,
- Recovery by mail,
- Expiration date of files.
NEW TECHNOLOGIES:
- Encrypt data before the transfers (wuala, bitcasa...),
- Trade your own HD disk (symform) (digitallifeboat) (wuala did it),
- Virtual remote HD with cache (bitcasa),
- Use of a paper key in addition to the password.
- "Shared files" storage quota is divided with every users who have access not only his creator. See "Fair Storage for All" copy.com concept.

QUICK FAQ FOR THESE SERVICES:
Q: I use a service which use S3, i'm very happy of this kind of QoS...
A: Do you forget the service can close ?

Q: Can i use X softwares competitors in same time ?
A: Yes and no. The generic idea is "Yes if you upload static archives as MP3 or a daily backup but no if this daily backup has the same filename forever". I can not be more precise coz they are a lot of cases and the risk *CAN BE* to forever loop a backup in some tiny cases.

Q: I have choosen an unlimited data storage service which is not an archive service, my hard disk is very large for me so i can create a specific directory i avoid to touch to place files i wish to keep forever. This method is equal to an archive service no ?
A: Absolutly *BUT* the disadvantage depend of filehistory of this service and his availabilty to recover data: consider you have 100 GB of data in this directory, a max filehistory of 30 days and a HD which has crashed today => to do not lost this advantage, you must reinstall your system and download these 100 GB before the first 30 days of backup software reinstallation else you lose forever these data ;) Pray god than you PC and/or DSL line hold on the load or rent a cloud/VPS/dedicated server ^^

(ideal for send regular backup)


Note: In August/September 2010, some workarounds to avoid Windows core "DLL load hijacking" execution thanks to network shares or WebDAV ask you to disable this service. So it will be logical WebDav service will never work on this case except if you use third party-softwares as GLADINET or STORAGEMADEEASY ;)

BONUS URLs on STORAGE WORLD:
BLACKBAZE tested HD brands and winner is...


DICO:

BLOCK-LEVEL: To reduce upload time and bandwidth when you regurarly update a file, the file is cut on X KiloBytes packets and only file modified packets are sent.
CDP: Continuous/Real-time data protection (every file changes will be backed up automatically and immediatly)
DEDUPLICATION (A.K.A's DEDUP or DE-DUP): Before every upload, the software send the checksum (size and MD5/SHA1 hash) to avoid you to send the whole file if another customer have already sent this file before you.
DIFFERENTIAL BACKUP: Permit to quickly restore a backup by only keeping the main and the last differential backup.
FTP monothread: means you can not upload more than one file in same time. FYI (depending of the FTP service), the transfert is either refused without reason or either it loops forever.
HOTLINK
INCREMENTAL BACKUP: Permit to quickly backup by using the main backup and all the intermediate core backup files. Do not go to the extremes by using/keeping dozens/hundreds of incremental files coz the restoration can be very slow ! common rules are 6 incremental backups and one incremental for the 7th.
NAS: Hardware which contains one or more HD designed to purpose file availability by FTP, Linux/Microsoft/Mac Network map or USB external drive.
PPC: "Pay Per Clic" method is a well-known (short-time) business-model for few enterprises to classically spread (illeg*l) contents on the net. It is more than strongly advised to never (only) use them as long-term backup policy.
RAIDx: Use RAID methods (RAID0 excluded).
RAID0 data security: None (only increase performances).
RAID1 data security: For home use, data is copied in 2 disks in real time [1 disk can crash, every TB of the new disk can be rebuilded in 2009 in less than 30 minutes].
RAID5 data security: Same as RAID1.
RAID6 data security: For home use, data is copied in 3 disks in real time [2 disks / 3 can crash in same time but every TB of every crashed disk(s) can be rebuilded in 2009 in about 24 hours].
RAID10 (AKA's RAID1+0) data security: Same as RAID1.
RAIN data security: Data is copied in X disks in real time. More you have/add disks on the pool, more the security is better...
(not sure of definition) RAIN: an better network SAN (more flexible than a NAS or SAN). use well know x86 hardware.
(not sure of definition) RING STORAGE: SCALITY purpose this new method which is 5x less expensive than S3. Used with RAIN technology, default setup let your datas on 16 blocks and 4 blocks can crash simultaneously with no loss with only a ratio of 125% data/storage. Data security seems lower than RAID5 because you can not lose ((16/4)+1)=5 blocks / 16 (with RAID5 you can virtually maximum not lose for the same amount of blocks (16-(16/200%)+1)=9 and for RAID6 the value is (16-(16/300%)+1)=11.6 blocks ***BUT*** due to the high number of HD used + the tiny time gain for rebuilding crashed HD, this technology redundancy is increased
SAN: a block data network service with HD hot-plugin.



(1) In others words, "Do you make backup of our backups ?"
(2) This case explain if other methods are available, some services permit to using WebDAV or downloading a classical HTTP or FTP URLs instead of the classical hard-disk file selection thanks to your browser. Notice some services can offer proprietary software but i do not privilegiate this kind of services so my document does not follow it for this table ;)
(3) Test launched since my VPS (thanks to NFRANCE again for this gift ;)
(4) Do not forget this "limited" word is relative because some unlimited services can be so slow that limited service is better than unlimited... A small well known tip (if you do not have a fixed IP) is to reboot your modem to obtain a new IP
(5) For testing services which refuses non-multimedia files, i have created a 100MB unheardable/uncompressable MP3 file which is a horrible mix of two TechnoDance NEXUS group albums, this test file as the original song are on CreativeCommons licence.
(6) Some services can use private/public folder *OR* secret URL for individuals or grouped content. Please read help to know methods before registering



F.A.Q FOR USERS:


Q: Why i can not use 2 or more sync (not backup) tools in same time ?
You will understand when you will install old sync tools with an old sync state your two softwares will be crazy and will create or delete conflicted versions and all your proper work can spin out of control !!!.

Q: What's about file encryption for file backup services ?
A: This kind of option is not checked by me sorry. Crypt yourself, they are lot of free/open-source tools...

Q: Why tables contains a lot of empty field ?
Q: Why you do not list services with file history (able to recover old backup data since X days) ?
A: Too many services listed on this document changes every day and gives me a lot of works.

Q: Why you do not speak about GDISK, GSPACE and GMAIL DRIVE here ?
A: I do not like workaround method for storage... and also they are on this list some great and free REAL storage services which can give you the same (or even better) QoS than Google ! Google is not perfect, in 2006 he has destroyed emails forever by error
EDIT ABOUT GOOGLE (February 21 2010): With his new offer launched X months ago, Google officially authorize data * At this date 1 GB of data storage is guaranteed free for all if you use Google Docs interface / if you pay required fees Google guarantee you can storage any files even if you use Gmail as gateway BUT if you do not pay anything, the 7.2 GB offered for Gmail service still give you no legal guarantees but seems tolerated.

Q: RAID5 or RAID6 really gives a security ?
A: The calculated guess / unguaranteed risk to losing some datas is about 1 / 3 billion in RAID5 and 1 / 55 billions in RAID 6 (UNVERIFIED NUMBERS I REPEAT AGAIN)
(Bonus URL) A Google PDF which explain disk failures

RAID5 with a risk of 3%/year/HD crash = (0.03*((1/365/(1/(24*2)))))*(0.03*((1/365/(1/(24*2)))))
RAID6 with a risk of 3%/year/HD crash = (0.03*(1/365))*(0.03*(1/365))*(0.03*(1/365))
(of course as explained in the google doc, 3% stays a false fixed value because it depends of HD quality, date of crash (most of crash durates before 6 month and after 2 years) and more and more... i repeat again and again and again all these values are calculated guess !!!

Another real test from BLACKBAZE said 80% are still alive after 4 years of "24/7 use" More details here in the common part for users

Q: What is the best backup policy ?
A: In 2011, for important data for an home user use, the best well known / well used value is "2 crypted online + 2 offline (CD/DVD/USB penkey or harddisk)" or 3 online + 1 offline.

A Bonus URL for you ;)







F.A.Q FOR WEBMASTERS:


Q: How to do on this list ?
A: Your service must:
- be 100% free or have a free offer,
- be in English (or French ;),
- permit to upload minimum 500 MB per file with more than 30 days retention after latest download *OR* 100 MB per file with unlimited storage (professionnal services or WebOS with high QoS are added whatever size it offers. Free FTP/WebDaV uploads services can be added too with specific low conditions),
- display all these states quoted below in your main page, TOS or FAQ and do not claim vague things as e.g "Your files will never expire as long as they're often downloaded" because it is sure for me in all case i immediatly forgot your service because i'm not a forecaster sic !
- not sucks ! force to download adwares or answer to surveys to grab wanted file, can not download my tiny test file after upload, refuse extension file after the end of upload, too restrictive conditions or changed restrictions are given after upload or before download, abandonned website, too busy when we wish to download a file (but not enough for displaying ads), purpose space disk lower than promised, create a (c) 2006 when domain name exist since 2008, answers to my mail more than 2 months, does not works under Linux, accept upload and reject files at the end of transfer because disk are full since a lot of months, lot of 404 errors, no email contact excepting the WHOIS ask your twitter/facebook/myspace password, does not warn X weeks before the account, cancellation, explain they use RAIN or RAID without other information, not be a reseller/partner of an another service and more and more... this list grows every month sic !
