Right now, you can get lifetime service on the 1TB plan for just $39.99 via the PopSci Shop.

There are many different cloud storage services to choose from nowadays. While some only mirror the data on your device, Polar Backup offers a true backup solution.

Available on Windows and Mac, the app lets you upload your entire hard drive with a click. Your files are protected by AES-256 encryption, and stored on secure servers.

Once your files are online, you can access them via any web browser (mobile apps coming later this year). The system runs on reliable Amazon Web Services technology, with redundancy to ensure the safety of your files.
