The answer is ... yes!

How does IDrive e2 compare to other providers?

IDrive seems to offer a good quality of service for a decent price.

Their price seem very competitive (this is valid on the 20/05/2022 and subject to change).
One remark though, they seem to advertise “first year” price with a discount of 90%.

  • They advertise a storage price of $0.004/GB/Month which is one of the lowest we’ve seen.
  • They include 10GB/free per month
  • They don’t charge for Ingress traffic.
  • They only charge Egress traffic if less or equal to 3x the storage volume. After that they charge $0.01/GB/month.
