ElephantDriveElephantDrive is an online backup and storage solution for PC Windows and Mac users. It works by first synchronizing a person's computer files and folders onto the company's data servers. This is done through the Internet. Afterwards, an installed application on the user's computer will periodically look for new and changed files, and will transfer these changes to ElephantDrive's servers.
Data recovery is easy and fast. Files can be accessed anywhere and at anytime so long as there's an Internet connection available. ElephantDrive uses a proprietary data delivery system which makes file transfers faster than most competitors in the industry.
