Pro Softnet Corp. — which offers the IDrive online backup service — has announced that users of its IDrive Mac client software version 1.4.2 can now enjoy full support for Apple Time Machine backups.

Once the Time Machine folder is selected for backup to the IDrive online account, IDrive automatically keeps the latest Time Machine data protected for a redundant backup. If the local Time Machine backup becomes lost or corrupted, individual files/folders, or the entire Time Machine backup can be restored back to the Mac.

What’s more, the new Rapid Serve program offered by IDrive allows large restores to occur via an IDrive Portable Hard Drive. IDrive Portable is a 320GB portable USB hard drive available for purchase from After purchase, the IDrive Portable drive is loaded with the customer’s most recent Time Machine backup and shipped free for a hassle-free restore using Apple’s Migration Assistant.

IDrive online backup accounts range from 5GB of storage absolutely free to unlimited storage plans for $49.95, and many options in between. IDrive Portable hard drives carry a one-time price of $69.95 and include free shipping in the US. IDrive for Mac users who don’t have version 1.4.2 of the Mac client can download it for free.
