10X Drive Review – Is The Hype Worth It?

Okay, so we caught wind of a new cloud storage provider called 10XDrive that is coming online to take on the likes of Dropbox, Google Drive, and others. I thought this would be a tough pill to swallow since the ‘big boys’ have pretty good solutions already in place. So I went ahead and got my account set up and started using the platform. See my review of 10xDrive below to see if it’s worth all the hype going on with it now and to determine if it will do what you want.

As you can see the interface is pretty vanilla which is not a bad thing as it makes navigating the platform pretty straight forward. Also, since this is only a cloud backup platform there would not be many bells and whistles to distract you since all you want to do is to be able to upload and download files easily.

Uploading files is pretty effortless as all you need to do is drag and drop them into the folder or use the file selector. The main drawback is that this is not really a ‘cloud backup’ solution as you can’t select full drives or folders to backup. You need to manually select each file to upload. That’s fine if you don’t want to do full computer backups. You also can’t access your files on the go with an app or an installable client as there are none available. So you would need to login to your XDrive account on any computer that you want to pull the file to.

Not much else to say other than that. This is a good ‘beginner’ type of backup service where if the goal you are looking to do is just to have a safe backup of files without an easy way of being able to access them then 10XDrive is good for you.

Luckily they offer a 10-year plan for a rock bottom price. Click over here to get their 10 Year plan

We also did a review of another cloud backup service which offers a bit more: see our Polar Backup review here.

Staring in the storage industry in 1999, I worked for a DVD Burning API company that provided the burning engine for iTunes and other burning software. Today my love for all types of storage is being displayed here.
