Rob Boirun, the CEO of DrivePop hit me up recently and asked me to do a review of their new service DrivePop so here goes.
What is DrivePop?
DrivePop is an online cloud backup solution for PC’s or Macs that enables you to keep your precious files, artifacts and documents in the cloud. It works by taking copies of those files and storing them safely away from your PC or Mac so in the event of a hard drive failure or some other catastrophe, you’ll be able to retrieve them quickly.
How does DrivePop work exactly?
As soon as you sign up for Drivepop you will get an installer file for Livedrive. The installer is available for both the Mac and the PC.
Once you download it, you start the Livedrive installation and configuration process.
LiveDrive installation process
During the installation you get to choose which folders you want to backup and then these get automatically backed up to your Drivepop Livedrive storage.
After the installation process is complete, you’ll see a live drive icon in the bottom right of your task bar. The icon can be clicked on to change your configuration options or add/remove folders as you choose.
You are also able to set a backup schedule and this determines when LiveDrive scans for files to backup to your LiveDrive account.
Set a backup schedule for your files
For the purposes of my review, I set my backups to occur only between 2am and 6am every morning to match my sleep window (don’t ask). If you’re ready to start backing files up immediately, you can select “real time backup” but if you are constantly creating new content files or updating files you will always have the upload going on in the background.
How long did it take?
Well I have a lot of movies and large apps on my hard drive so it took me about several hours but I was able to back up 16.7 GB of data to my Livedrive account.
DrivePop backup process 9GB in
Overall the process was pretty straightforward and there weren’t many moving parts so even a lower end computer user will be able to set this up and get it running.
The process is pretty straightforward and simple and I liked the fact that it could backup in the background or on a schedule so it works around your preference.
I think that this is something every PC user needs to have – a solid cloud backup solution for their Mac or PC.
DrivePop’s offer to you (the reader)
Now typically cloud backup solutions like this one charge by the month or annually because of the value of the software but Rob and I have been able to work out a special deal for readers of this blog for this month.
DrivePop is offering my readers a LIFETIME license for UNLIMITED cloud backups for one payment. No annual fees. Ever.
You heard that right – you basically have as long as you want to back up as many files as you want and you only have to pay once.
He’s also offering you an EXCLUSIVE 30% discount on the pricing.
Here are the plans he’s offering to you:

Make sure you use the Discount Code EYE-K1RN when you choose a plan and get to the shopping cart. It will take 30% off the pricing right there.
Once again, use the 30% Discount Code Discount Code EYE-K1RN.
It’s also coming with a 30 day no hassle and no questions asked refund policy. If the backup solution isn’t what you want, send an email and cancel and you’ll get your money back immediately. No questions asked.
It’s a good deal because it’s a set and forget deal – once you get it, you can install the software a week later, a month later, whenever. No monthly or annual fees = no pressure.
