ADrive Releases Cross-Platform Backup Client

EMERYVILLE, Calif. -- ADrive announces the release of ADrive Desktop, a desktop backup client designed to simplify backup and recovery tasks for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. This latest ADrive feature is now available to Signature and Premium customers at www.ADrive.com. ADrive Desktop makes the online storage of files and folders easier than ever by allowing customers to backup and restore files directly from multiple computers to their ADrive account, consolidating all of their files to a single online location for ease of use and access. It also serves as a reliable tool for small and medium businesses as well as larger enterprise customers to leverage volume capacity discounts when backing up diverse laptop and desktop infrastructures.

ADrive Desktop is simple enough for basic consumers to start backing up their important files within minutes. This new tool is also flexible enough for a customer who might use Windows at work and Mac and Linux systems at home to backup all of their systems to one single account. ADrive Desktop finally gives consumers a unified place to backup all of their files, instead of segregated backups for each computer. The user interface is consistent and uniform across all operating systems, making it easy to set up and use on various platforms—a perfect solution for modern families with multiple computers.

“It was essential to us that ADrive Desktop would be compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux because we realize that there is a varied community of customers with unique needs in this marketplace. We also knew we had to offer backup for multiple computers through a single account, because, in the end, you have one set of data you want to access, even if you have many computers. ADrive Desktop, combined with our other tools, gives our customers the kind of flexible data storage options they need, whether they want simple backup of one Linux desktop or they are looking to secure data for a complex network of hundreds of laptops and desktops running a variety of operating systems,” says Allen Sandros, ADrive’s Vice President of Product Development.
