IDriveSync offers the following plans:
We are now giving 25 GB of FREE storage to all students! Create an account with a valid school email address. Once it is verified, your account will be upgraded 25 GB of space.
We want to help you be smart!
On the web:
Login to IDriveSync via any web browser and click on your email address at the top right of the screen to open the slider. You can view how much space you are using under the Storage section. You can also view this information under the 'Account' section on the right side.
On a computer:
Click the IDriveSync icon in the System Tray/Menu Bar; your Sync space quota is displayed as the top option (click it to upgrade). You can also view this information in 'Preferences'.
Files in the IDriveSync folder and files synced to Out of Box are counted towards your storage. This includes any files or folders uploaded manually to your account via the website. Files in trash or older versions of files DO NOT count as space used.
If you have a Basic plan you can upgrade your account! If you have a paid plan, in order to make room for new files, you may need to remove any old data you no longer need in the IDriveSync cloud. Or, you can always add more space with an upgrade!
You can also check out the 'Get Free Space' tab to discover ways to add extra space, if you haven't already.
On the web:
Select the files or folders to delete. Click the blue arrow against the file or folder and select 'Delete' from the menu.
On a computer:
Open 'My IDriveSync Folder' and delete files or folders just like any other on your computer - IDriveSync will sync these changes to your connected devices.
Yes. Deleted files are stored in the Trash bin online for 30 days. Click on above the file list to see the items in your Trash bin. Check the files you need to restore and click 'Put Back'. This will restore the items to their original location in your IDriveSync account.
You can then download them to a computer as well, if necessary.
Nope! However, any file you choose to restore from the Trash Bin will again take up sync space.
You can mark the checkboxes next to files you wish to get rid of in the Trash Bin and then press 'Delete' to permanently delete them. If you would like to delete everything, click the 'Empty Trash' button.
Note: Files and folders deleted from the Trash are not recoverable.
