California-based IDrive Inc., this week announced an update to its online backup service will cover an “unlimited” number of PCs, tablets and mobile devices.

According to IDrive, business customers can store 50 GB for $9.95 per month or $99.50 for the year, and that cost includes “priority customer support.” Other business options include 100 GB, 500 GB and 1 TB in storage, which are also available in monthly and annual pricing packages.

For home customers, the service stores 150 GB for $4.95 per month or 500 GB for $14.95 per month. The backup service also offers a free option with a 5 GB storage limit.

The service offers support for Windows PCs, Mac OS X, Android and Apple’s iOS, plus the company says it stores up to 30 earlier copies of archived files, and they don’t count against a customer’s total storage limit.

It also offers common features like 256-bit AES encryption, continuous data backup and data restores, and 24-hour customer support.

IDrive says it has about 800,000 subscribers for its storage products.
