Aug. 18, 2011 - PRLog -- Livedrive, an award winning provider of online backup and cloud storage, has been awarded the Best Buy award in the latest online backup labs test carried out by Computer Shopper magazine.  The labs test pitted Livedrive Backup against twelve other providers of online backup, and concluded that “with unlimited storage, a web interface that lets you stream your music, and mobile apps for Android and iOS, all for less than £5 per month, [Livedrive] is hard to beat.”

Livedrive provides three consumer packages - Livedrive Backup, a simple secure online backup service; Livedrive Briefcase, which syncs files between PCs and allows users to access their files anywhere; and Livedrive Pro Suite, which combines both Backup and Briefcase into one powerful home cloud storage solution.  The Computer Shopper review focussed on Livedrive's easy to use and hassle free Backup product - which comes with unlimited online storage space and support for one PC included. Customers can backup additional PCs for just £0.95 per month.

Livedrive Backup's easy installation was praised, with Computer Shopper especially enjoying how easy it was to set up backups - but it was Livedrive's powerful remote access features that were the favourite, especially Livedrive's built in web music player and mobile apps.

The review concluded that "unlimited backup for a single computer, plenty of mobile, sharing and web-based streaming features and an easy-to-use interface make Livedrive Backup our Best Buy."

Jamie Brown, Product Manager at Livedrive, said today: "We have put a lot of effort into making sure that Livedrive is the easiest way to get your files safely into the cloud - and we have done even more to make sure that it's simple to use them once they're there.  We're very pleased that Computer Shopper enjoyed using Livedrive as much as our customers do!  Even since that review came out, we've rolled out a host of new features - including an Android app and online video streaming from the web portal, and there's plenty more to come."

Livedrive Backup is available from Livedrive's website at for just £4.95 per month.
