I'm impressed with the CloudBox. It offers a super secure backup, which is exactly what I needed. It encrypts and saves my data on the local hard drive and then sends an encrypted copy to the cloud. I simply cannot loose my data with CloudBox. The performance is awesome. Transfer speed on the local network is good. The cloud works well too. The setup was easy. The documentation that comes with the drive is well written. LaCie did a great job with this CloudBox!
I was looking for a reliable storage solution suitable for my business data, that is easy to use and reliable in terms of security. CloudBox came high on my list of possible options. The user interface is very easy to manage. The setup and the backup software is included with the drive. The files can be easily restored from the cloud, which automatically saves up to 10 versions. All that comes at a very affordable price compared to alternative cloud storage solutions.
So far, I've had an excellent experience with the CloudBox. The setup was very easy and the device pretty much takes care of everything else. The capacity is more than enough for my work archive and the security you get with this device is just hard to beat. The data is backed up in two places simultaneously. One copy is stored and safely encrypted on the local drive and up to ten last versions are stored one on the cloud. Lacie has done a great job designing this amazing storage solution!
I purchased the CloudBox only recently and I'm already very pleased with it. The most important feature of this device is its ability to connect to the cloud. Backing up data on the cloud is currently the most failsafe solution I'm aware of. So CloudBox in that respect is very convenient. It automatically backs everything up to the cloud, and keeps a local copy. All data is encrypted and password-protected, and can be restored at any time.
This is a hybrid of local storage and cloud back up. I've set it up to back up my projects. The device has been working flawlessly so far. I think it's worth the money and is perfect for my needs.
CloudBox is a excellent way to have a safe automated backup. I've been using it for a bit more than two months now and I'm very impressed with the ease of use and the security it offers. The data is automatically backed up on the local drive, then it's encrypted and sent to the cloud. So far, I am most happy with this product.

If you just want to restore certain files, the CloudBox’s Online Restore application allows you to browse and restore selections of files and folders, up to 10 previous versions.

The provided LaCie Backup Software for Windows®reg; and Mac®reg; will back up, a maximum of 10 computers automatically to your CloudBox. Even more simply, you can drag and drop your files to your CloudBox. Your files are safe because the CloudBox is password-protected, so no one in your local network can access your data.
Restore Your Files If you mistakenly deleted some files on your computer or on your CloudBox, you can restore them to any place where you have an Internet connection. The CloudBox Restore Application allows you to browse your online backup and restore up to 10 previous backup versions.

Thanks to AES 128-bit encryption, every file is encrypted before it leaves your home or your company. Your online backup is also secure, as access is password-restricted. No one, not even LaCie, can access your files because you are the only one who knows the password.
Eco-Friendly As soon as you finish copying your most important files to your CloudBox, you can shut down your computer to save energy. Unlike other online backup services, the CloudBox doesn’t need your computer to be on to secure your files online. LaCie CloudBox works independently of any computer.
