One of the most asked questions I get by email is what companies support mapped drives or network drives. With more and more homes having multiple computers and network attached storage devices it is not surprising that people want one service that can backup their networked data as well as the information on their local desktop or laptop.
The services that support mapped drives or network drives is a pretty short list. I will list them here and eventually add a new category on the top onlne backup companies page and add a new column on the online backup comparisons page so people can find this information.
The list of services that support mapped drives include:
|SpiderOak||IDrive||SOS Online Backup||Memopal||Livedrive|

Below are screenshots from the services websites highlighting that they support mapped or network drives. Please verify for yourself if the service will do what you need it to do before signing up. They all offer either a free version or a free trial to test.
