Hmm. You have an upcoming "deal" on It states "DrivePop Cloud Backup - Ultimate Backup 1-PC/MAC 4-Years Mac & PC".

75% OffDrivePop Cloud Backup - Ultimate Backup 1-PC/MAC 4-Years (Mac & PC) Discount Download Coupon Code
$39.99 Normal $160.00

Your site shows 1-PC "Olympic" plan 4-Years for $39.99 and
your site shows Unlimited-PC "Ultimate" 4-Years for $99.99

I fail to see what the special discount or offer is with Bits du Jour. It appears to be normal 1-PC pricing, with the wrong term "Ultimate" on it.

Smacks of being misleading right out of the gate...

BurnWorld @paul Info has been updated on the page and this pricing is a deal for BDJ members and this is not the regular pricing. What this deal is for is 4 years of Unlimited backup service for the price of 1. You can renew at the end of 4 years to continue the service.

Paul Miller Not to be a pill, but going back to at "", and comparing plans, I see nothing correlating this "deal" of $120 for 67% off at $39.99 for 4 years. I see several 1 PC/Mac Unlimited 4-year at $39.99

So how is this a "deal"? I see no advantage to this BDJ offer versus Don't believe I am that dense...

BurnWorld The plan offered here would be the starter plan on that page which is $30 annually or $120 for 4 years, so the deal is 4 years for $40.

Paul Miller Granted. This is just me. Nice to find a review online. DrivePop may or may not be for you.


In reading this review, it is not for me. My media files are on externals -- one, for backup and two, redundancy. DrivePop apparently is not for backing up external media, rather only internal of one's Mac, PC, Phone, Pad. Where this may be helpful for a number of folks, it just isn't for me.

BurnWorlk/DrivePop can perhaps explain if this is not actually the case...

BurnWorld @Paul The review is not correct where it says does not backup external drives. This plan will backup externally directly connected drives. NAS drives would require an add-on and Network shares/drives would also require the NAS add-on.

So yes this plan will backup external drives that are physically attached to the PC/Mac.

Paul Miller Thank you for the responsiveness. This put you folks back into serious consideration again.

Pim Joosten I have been using DrivePop for almost ayear now and am happy with it. There were some quirks in the beginning, related to the Livedrive backup system that DrivePop uses, but they have been solved for a long time now. I can thoroughly recommend it. Support has always been very responsive.

There are some things I want to add to the previous comments.
1. If you want to back-up an external drive, it has to be connected at least every 30 days. If you don't do that those files will be deleted from the server after 30 days.
2. DrivePop uses deduplication, which means that if a file is already on the server (either in your own back-up set or somebody else's), the file does not need to be uploaded, but it will be added to your back-up set. Especially with non-personal files like downloads the chance of somebody already having uploaded it is pretty large is my experience. This only reduces your upload time.
3. The downside of having deduplication is that DrivePop uses server side encryption, instead of client side encryption. So if you want to be 100% certain that your personal files cannot be accessed under any circumstance, you have to encrypt them yourself first. I do not back-up my very personal files to DrivePop for that reason. But then I also have another premium online back-up provider, which is way more expensive, that I do entrust with my personal files, as they use client side encryption. DrivePop is relatively cheap and I use it for my music collection, downloads etc. which I would not upload to my premium online back-up provider, as they are way too expensive for that
4. You may want to check out the comments in this thread of a previous DrivePop offer (, as they contain a lot of additional information. You will read some comments in that thread doubting DrivePop's credibility, but that was the distrust people had about the very good sale they had back then. Like I said, after having used DrivePop for almost a year I can thoroughly recommend it.

Daniel Gaudet Ditto on what Pim mentioned. I've been using DrivePop from the last promotion and I couldn't be happier. For what I was looking for (a backup of my drives if they crash), this is a great option.

For some of my files, I also wanted to keep multiple versions and support longer than 30 days availability if I accidentally deleted them, so in December I added the 512 GB Briefcase option to my package which allows you to store multiple versions of files. Once enabled, it was easy to enable it with the DrivePop client. (Briefcase is similar Dropbox).

Dongwoo Kim What is a "File Versioning (30 Versions)" ?
Does that have a limited type of files?
Mar 23 2014 at 2:43am Copy Link
Tom Colvin If I get this, I would be saving a lots of files. To simplify uploading, is it possible to add to the backup 1-2 new folders a day until I cover all folders? And does the online backup replicate the file structure on my hard drive?

Stephen Kreyling So is it possible to upload encrypted containers for storage on the service or does the software have to scan the hard drive and upload. I guess what I need to know is if I can encrypt my files in containers and then just upload the containers for storage?
Mar 23 2014 at 5:57am Copy Link
BurnWorld @Dongwoo - the service will keep up to 30 versions of a changed file. so if you have a document that you edit frequently the service will notice the changes and upload the new version. It will also keep the older versions in case you need to revert back to an earlier version.

@Tom - yes you can upload in this fashion. The backup service will mirror your file structure so it will be as you have it on your computer.

@Stephen - The backup service will scan and upload. So if you have encrypted on your end it will upload that encrypted container as it is.

gail f Is this just for media files or all files? Like a Carbonite, Mozy or Crash Plan? Hard to figure out from description...
Mar 23 2014 at 3:50pm Copy Link
BurnWorld This is for all your files like pics, docs, music, video like carbonite, etc.. This is not really for full system backups.
BurnWorld Inc. - Mar 23 2014 at 4:02pm Copy Link
gail f I'm in! Looks like an awesome deal....I hated Carbonite and while I liked CrashPlan this is a much better deal AND has an APP to be able to access files. Thanks

Tom Colvin I have downloaded and installed the Windows program -- and have already uploaded one major folder from my HD. Now that I see just how this program works, I am VERY PLEASED!

Is it possible to upgrade from an individual account to the Family Account covering 5 computers under today's deal? I would like other members of my family to utilize your service. I cannot find any upgrade options from my account page on your website.

Thanks. And great looking program and service.

BurnWorld @Tom - thanks for the feedback. Yes, anyone taking advantage of the deal is grandfathered in to the 'more' computer plans. I will have omeone will send you an invoice for the Family plan for the discounted rate.
