Unlimited flexibility

Access HiDrive from any device, any time, from the office or on the go. There’s no limit to the type of data you can upload – from Word and Excel, to audio and video files. Your data is stored securely in data centers in the US and Europe.

Access your data from anywhere

Download the app to your smartphone or tablet to always have your data on hand — in the office, on the road and while with customers. Relax safe in the knowledge that if you forget your laptop in the office or your battery dies mid-presentation, you can still access your data in the cloud from any browser on any device, meaning you still have those important sales figures at hand, or can simply finish your presentation using a colleague's computer.

Synchronization

HiDrive integrates itself into your workday. The desktop software allows you to sync your folders to the cloud. This means changes made to a file online or locally will be synced across all versions.

Collaboration

Team projects go smoother when you collaborate using HiDrive. Easily create and manage individual accounts for each team member with password protection. Share projects internally or externally with just a link, and give people read-only access or the ability to edit. You can also set an expiration date for shared links, and limit the number of times data is downloaded. As you finish working in New York, your team in Honolulu can pick up right where you left off.

We secure your data so you can focus on what matters

Benefits of HiDrive online storage

Stay secure

HiDrive keeps your work safe through all steps of your projects. Automatic backups prevent unintended changes and deletions and store previous versions of your work. You can also opt to back up your NAS hardware or entire devices to protect against theft, damage and power outages.

Stay private

Your data privacy is important to us. Unlike free online storage providers, your HiDrive data will never be monetized. All of our data centers adhere to the ISO 27001 standard.

Stay in control

HiDrive gives you the power to decide who has the access rights to do what. Set up password-protected accounts for your team members, or allow access with a link. Configure permissions for each individual user.

For your security, HiDrive uses asymmetric elliptical curve (Curve25519) encryption in addition to the existing AES 256 encryption within the HiDrive data center.
Customers choose 1&1 IONOS because unlike free online storage providers, your HiDrive data does not get monetized. All HiDrive files are stored in data centers in the US and Europe, meaning they are kept secure and private under the strictest security standards.

HiDrive cloud storage

FAQ – Frequently asked questions
HiDrive cloud storage works on several different devices and operating systems. It is possible to use HiDrive as a storage app, desktop software or directly in your web browser. Your stored data can be accessed by you on the online server whenever and wherever you need it, and across many different devices – from home, work or on the go. Here's a quick overview of the availability of HiDrive cloud storage on different devices:

  • Apps: The HiDrive storage app is available for iOS, Android. For iOS, version 9.3 or newer is required, as these versions have updated security features. The iOS app is compatible with iPhone and iPad.

  • Desktop: The desktop software for HiDrive cloud storage is compatible with Windows operating systems (Vista and newer).

  • Web browser: You can also access everything you've backed up on a web browser in case you don't have your mobile device or computer at hand – this is possible from any web browser, and is ideal in case you're working for or with an important client and your laptop or desktop computer fails. In this case, the web browser provides the ideal solution.
With HiDrive, you will be able to save all kinds of files, including Word or Excel documents, PDFs, video or XML files, various types of image files, or Photoshop and PSD files, HiDrive can store all of them, as well as many other formats. This means that you can use different programs, even on different operating systems and devices, and still store them all in the same place for secure, easy access whenever and wherever you need.

Storing large files is no problem with HiDrive. There is no set limit for file sizes – depending on your storage plan, you may have more space. The only actual restriction on possible space is the technically determined limits, but these are really very seldom reached. For example, if you have an Adobe Premiere Video project that you want to back up that is 10 GB, or even bigger, HiDrive can back up this large file without any problems. Extraordinarily large Photoshop files can also be uploaded, saved and shared on the online file server. This makes HiDrive one of the best cloud storage options, with the possibility to expand when you reach your file limit.

There is also no limit on the number of files and folders you have uploaded and saved to the cloud. There are of course some technical limits, but these are, again, hard to exceed. Furthermore, it is possible to store thousands of login files in one folder, meaning organizing and managing your online file storage is easy and workable.
It's very simple to integrate HiDrive into your current infrastructure. The Pro package, especially, eases the process because so many protocols are supported. If you use a Windows operating system, automatic software distribution services like Baramundi are also supported, and can be configured for a proxy infrastructure.
The following protocols are supported within HiDrive Pro:

  • (S)FTP/FTPS: fast data transfer with an option to pause and resume
  • WebDAV: folder integration on HTTP-basis
  • SMB/CIFS drive integration into your operating system
  • rSync: the standard for data synchronization
  • SCP: secure data transmission via SSH
  • Git: secure Git repository for developers
There is a current technical limitation of 10 devices per operating system per account. Simply put: 10 Android, 10 Windows and 10 iOS devices are allowed per account. This makes it one of the cheaper cloud storage options, because it allows for so many devices on one plan. Note that if you register an 11th Windows device, for example, the first one on the list is removed. So it depends on your personal needs – but it is possible to register all your devices!

If you wish, you can allow each of your users to back up five computers and three mobile devices using just one account – HiDrive is one of the best cloud storage providers due to its flexibility. It also offers highly secure smartphone backups, as well as PC and laptop backups, meaning that you can store all your personal or professional securely.
Cloud storage works with every kind of internet connection. Whether you have WiFi or LAN internet, you'll be able to make an online backup onto a cloud storage provider without any problems. It is good to note, however, that if you're planning to back up large video files, a quicker internet connection is better. Lots of big image files will also take longer to upload, regardless of the internet connection, but a slow connection will take longer. If you're also using the cloud storage for multiple devices at the same time, a reliable and fast internet connection will mean your cloud storage will work better.

In short, cloud storage works with all internet connections, but your usage will determine the internet connection speed you'll require.
This is an important question – and one that HiDrive focuses its attention on. Data privacy is of utmost importance, and because of this, HiDrive offers secure data transfer through SSL256, and AES128 encrypted data storage. These measures are taken to ensure that your data is uploaded, transferred and stored to a professional level of security to add protection against cyber criminals. Cloud storage is much safer than having a local backup laying in an office drawer.

On top of this, each user has their own private folders, as well as the public folders for each user on the HiDrive package. This ensures that there is not only a high level of security in terms of the stored data, but also enough privacy for each user so they can manage their own projects and files. Furthermore, it means that each user has the potential to keep sensitive information, such as employee details in their own private folders and that files which everyone needs can be accessed by all.
