A secure, reliable, set-it-and-forget-it backup solution

TRY SPIDEROAK ONE

SpiderOak One is like my grandpa: It's old and lacks sophistication, but it's a dependable workhorse that'll help you out of a jam when you need it most. Sometimes the best solution is something simple running in the background that's easy to ignore until you need it. That's SpiderOak One; the set-it-and-forget-it backup solution.

Endorsed by professionals like Edward Snowden, SpiderOak has proven itself as the go-to solution for file sync and backup for over a decade. What they lack in features, SpiderOak more than makes up for with their impressive end-to-end crypto and their industry experience. They've seen it all, and it's made them really good at what they do. If you're looking for an easy way to keep an encrypted backup of your machine, keep SpiderOak near the top of your list.
