The IDrive One is offered in both an HDD version with capacities of either 1TB or 2TB, and an SSD version with capacities of either 128GB or 256GB. Both versions comes with 1TB of IDrive cloud backup for free for one year.
The IDrive One can operate as a fast wireless base station, as an extension of your smart phone or other mobile storage, or to perform encrypted local backups. When used as a wireless base station, the IDrive One and its 802.11ac standard boasts transfer rates of up to 1.3Gb/s, which is triple that of the previous 802.11n standard. It features simultaneous dual-band support, transmitting in both the 2.4GHz and 5 GHz frequencies at the same time.

With the new IDrive One app for iOS and Android (available from the Apple app store and Google Play), you can transfer unencrypted media files from your devices to the IDrive One. Once transferred, videos, music and/or pictures can be streamed to your mobile devices. The IDrive One has an effective Wi-Fi range of 150 feet, and allows you to say goodbye to smart phone storage limitations.
With the IDrive One you can protect your data in the cloud, as well as to the IDrive One device, with encryption, utilizing the IDrive Online Backup app. Again, the 802.11ac wireless support makes data transfers lightning fast for local and cloud backups and restores.
