For certain paid accounts, your cloud replications will continue uninterrupted even if you exceed your cloud storage limit. However, you will incur an overage charge at the rate of $120/TB/month. In case your usage exceeds your cloud storage quota, you may upgrade to one of the higher storage plans and avoid overage charges. Upgrades may involve additional charges.
IDrive BMR also provides options to configure the cloud retention policy and delete data from the cloud.
Manage cloud backups on the IDrive BMR web console
The IDrive BMR cloud retention policy allows you to retain data that you need for a time period specified by you, and thereby avoid storing data that is no longer needed.
To manage your backups,
- Sign in to the IDrive BMR web console.
- Hover over Cloud Retention Policy and click Manage Policy Settings.
- In the pop-up that appears, use the dropdown to choose the retention time for your incremental backup and full image backup.
- Click Apply.
Note: Old data will be deleted based on what you have specified in the backup retention settings.
