IDrive Online Backup Releases IDrive Connect, the Best Way to Google Docs Outside of Google Docs

New software launched by IDrive makes Google Docs accessible as a virtual folder on a Windows PC

LOS ANGELES, April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Word on the street says Google is gearing up to launch a cloud service of some kind that could bring a host of new features to the desktop, but why wait on Google?

IDrive Online Backup has just released new free software - IDriveConnect - allowing users to access their Google Docs as if they were sitting in a regular folder on their computer. This allows for some simple yet extremely useful functionality:

  • Drag-and-drop to easily upload and download within Windows Explorer
  • Automatically convert popular document types to Google Docs format
  • Share files and folders directly within IDrive Connect

Additionally, IDrive Connect has the option to save items in Google Docs directly to an existing IDrive account. Create an IDrive account and store up to 5GB of documents, and more, completely free of charge.

IDrive Connect is built on IDrive's EVS platform

EVS is the foundation of IDrive Online Backup, a fast, flexible, and secure cloud storage platform.  With public APIs available, developers can take advantage of those same features to create their own applications compatible with the IDrive family.  Since EVS was developed in-house by the IDrive team, they are able to offer secure cloud storage at a more affordable rate than plans offered by competitors Carbonite and Mozy.

IDrive Online Backup is available for home and server editions of Windows and Mac OS X and for mobile devices in the Apple App Store and Android Market.

IDrive is created by Pro Softnet Corporation
Headquartered in Los Angeles County, Pro Softnet Corp is a privately held company specializing in cloud storage, online backup, file sharing, remote access, compliance, sync and related technologies serving the consumer, small business and enterprise markets.
