What do you all think of this company? How long do you expect them to be around? When a company starts offering discounted lifetime pricing on one of its services, I tend to think that I’m really paying for about 3 years of something before it folds for good. I’m not sure I’m jumping at this deal, especially since they’re kind of vague about privacy and encryption of the data I send…

So slow

After having to reinstall and restart twice due to program crashes I now have 34GB uploaded after 5 months of 15 hour/day use! Upload speeds as low as 18 KB/s from Australia. I have a fast cable connection and wondered whether connection to the server from here is very poor. Other cloud backups I use upload quickly. If you are in Australia I would think twice about investing in this service.

Genius Rescue

Genius Rescue is no more.

After contacting live drive (The company to which Genius Rescue are a reseller of) they confirmed that the company terminated their sellers account on the 20th of January, and in fact, the way in which Genius Rescue was conducting their business is in breach of the reseller conditions – I have contact Techdirt direct in regards this response as they should have been selling something which is in breach of the conditions of the supplier, if I get a response I’ll update this further.

In regards your data, for anyone in the future, the live drive can migrate data from their account but only if you act quickly data will be removed altogether on the 1st of Feb 2017.

So you have just a few short days to sign up to live drive it costs £5 per machine or £48 per year. The way I found out this infirmation was to contact sales @ livedrive.com who were very helpful informing me of all the details.

Hope this helps someone

Alex

Re: Genius Rescue

A little more of an update, my instructions for those who wish to try and get live drive reinstated, will need to contact live drive direct, they will then within 48 hours reactive your account (there is no need to create an account first). They(live drive) will provide a 30-day trial after which in order to continue using your drive you would need to pay live drive direct.
