IDrive Cloud Backup for Your NAS Devices

November 25, 2022

While one might be doubtless that backing up computers, mobiles, and servers is essential for preventing data loss, many do not consider backing up NAS devices such as Synology necessary. These devices are popular for their exceptional performance and test scores. But the fact is that NAS devices can also be subjected to a hard-drive crash, a RAID array failure, or can even be stolen, burned, or drowned. So like any other device, backing them up is equally essential.

Cloud backup solutions like IDrive are the most recommended option for backing up your NAS devices, as they include numerous benefits. IDrive provides version-based data recovery, easy backup management, file sync and sharing, and much more!

NAS Backup in IDrive – Apps to backup QNAP, Synology, Asustor, and Netgear

IDrive has separate apps for QNAP, Synology, Asustor, and Netgear that must be installed on respective NAS devices for safeguarding data. To do so, you must download the application from our website and install it on to the NAS device. You can then conveniently start transferring your data to our cloud.

Backing up your NAS device to IDrive’s cloud protects your data in an affordable, secure and easy manner. With the IDrive QNAP, Synology, Asustor, and Netgear apps, you can schedule automatic transfers or perform manual transfers, receive email notifications on completion of all scheduled jobs and also view detailed logs of account activities.
