Each customer needs to Create Account ID in order to purchase and login to NetDrive3 software. Unlike our previous versions, NetDrive3 does not use license number anymore and it always needs to be connected to the Internet while using.
A trial version is available in Bdrive website (https://www.netdrive.net/store) and it is recommended to check our software prior to the purchase.
‘License’ is defined as the number of software that can be used concurrently in any device, and each customer can purchase as many licenses as needed.
Once the license purchase is successfully completed, no-reply confirmation email is immediately sent to user account ID along with the invoice link. Useful license information can also be found in Account Site (https://accounts.bdrive.com).
Note each account ID can purchase only one license type.
Plans In General
NetDrive3 has two kinds of plans, Personal and Team, which can be found in Bdrive website (https://www.netdrive.net/store).
‘Personal Plan’ is generally for personal use which allows only a single account ID whether customer purchases one or multiple licenses. In case of multiple Personal licenses, same drive items are used among the devices and mounted drives/contents are accessible to other Windows users on the same device.
‘Team Plan’ can have respective account ID for each Team member. After the purchase, Team admin must Add Team Member in Account Site (https://accounts.bdrive.com). Unlike Personal plan, each Team member has their own drive items and mounted drives are not visible to other Windows users on the same devices.
Two types of NetDrive3 licenses are available, subscription based and onetime purchase.
‘Yearly Subscription’ can use the license during subscription period along with customer support and update. It is very important to know about Subscription Auto-Renewal which will be auto-charged on the initial purchased day of next year, using the same payment method.
‘Lifetime License’ literally can be used during product lifetime with selection of ‘support and update’ period, either 1 year or lifetime.
In case of ‘1 year’ support and update option, the license can be used for product lifetime with limited support and update of 1 year. For the customers who further need support and update after 1 year expired, additional Lifetime Support Option is available. Detailed information can be found in the article ‘What happens to my one-time license (prior product name of current Lifetime license with 1 year support) after 1 year?’.
In case of ‘lifetime’ support and update option, the license will last during product lifetime along with support and update.
Note Personal plan offers both 1 year and lifetime support option whereas Team plan offers lifetime option only.
License can be added to initial purchase order at ‘add license’ price. The purchase can be proceeded in License category in Account Site (https://accounts.bdrive.com/plans_products/NetDrive3).
When placing an add license order, the followings will be proceeded for each plan below:
‘Yearly Subscription’ will first cancel current (initial or the most recent) purchase order by partial refunding applying ‘prorate’, counting from initial or the most recent purchase day. Then a new Yearly Subscription purchase order (for 1 year) will be issued for total license quantities at adjusted total price. It is important to know that this order will be auto-renewed on this day, annually, as explained in Subscription Auto-Renewal.
‘Lifetime License’ will issue individual purchase order for each add license request at corresponding add license price.
Note Yearly Subscription allows both add and remove license option whereas Lifetime License limits to add license only.
Note support and update period of added licenses of Lifetime license for 1 year will comply with the license period of ‘initial’ purchase order (not add license period). Support and update for Yearly Subscription lasts during subscription period.
_Note remove license is limited one time per day. _
Add Team Member
After the Team license purchase is completed, Team admin is required to add members before using the software.
There are 2 ways to add Team members and it can be proceeded in https://accounts.bdrive.com/plans_products/NetDrive3/team.
The simplest way is to add Team members manually. Within available license quantity, Team admin can add members and assign license quantity per member. It is important that each Team member must Create Account IDs prior to add team member.
For bulk licenses, it is more popular to register the domain. Once the domain is successfully registered, there is no need for Team admin to register each member under corresponding domain manually. Each Team member, however, is required to Create Account IDs before login to NetDrive software. Team account can utilize both ‘domain register’ and ‘Add Team members’ in combination. Maximum 2 domains can be registered.
For unlimited licenses, only domain registering (maximum 2) is available. Note manual add Team members is not able.
License quantity, by default, is set to 1 per user and it can be changed anytime within available quantity. License quantity and Team members can be changed (add/deactivate/remove user, reactivate domain user) in Account Site (https://accounts.bdrive.com) anytime.
We assist to add multiple Team members using CSV file, so write to our Support Site (https://support.bdrive.com) with CSV file and Team admin account ID.
A simple manual to Add Team Member can be downloaded in https://discourse.bdrive.com/t/team-manual-admin-member-control/40947.
_Note our Team manual is emailed to Team admin account ID immediately after the license purchase is completed. _
Each customer needs to Create Account ID prior to purchase and login to NetDrive3 software. Account Site is https://accounts.bdrive.com and includes Login Information, Reset Password, Change Login Method, Invoice Link, Add License, Add Team Member, Support Site, etc.
Yearly Subscription continues yearly base by auto-charging on the initial purchase day of each successive year, using the same payment method. A renewal order will be issued and emailed to user account ID.
User is required to check the expiration date of the credit card before annual auto-charge transaction is proceeded since otherwise it will fail the renewal which eventually leads to the cancellation of the entire subscription immediately. Our customers will receive renewal notification email 7 days prior to the renewal date advising about upcoming auto-charge, so it is important to double check card information including the expiration date. Change Credit Card is available in our payment gateway, BlueSnap.
