Before we commit to our deep dive into this article, let’s take a minute to figure out how it’s setup and what it is exactly.
Firstly, this is not a review of each backup service. Instead, we’ve setup this article as a summary of each service, what it has to offer and why we liked it.
And every service ends with a pros and cons list.
Of course, we firmly encourage you to click the “Read review” button so that you can access our full, in-depth reviews of each service.
Lastly, none of the cloud backup services here provide unlimited backup for free; they just have generous (yet limited) free plans.
IDrive has one of the neatest interfaces we’ve ever seen, but that is not the only reason it’s on the top of the list. It comes with 5GB of free storage, file syncing, IDrive Express and private encryption.
SpiderOak offers file-sharing and cloud backup services — based upon a bedrock of tight security. It’s greatest selling point is the ability to sync files while continuously logging changes online.
Of course, the main reason it’s on our list is the top notch privacy on offer. Because of this fact, the company’s employees do not have access to a client’s data. Better yet, neither do the NSA and other unsavory types.
But that’s not all; SpiderOak can backup unlimited computers using only one online account.
This feature is useful for people who want to make a backup across multiple operating systems.
Though SpiderOak isn’t very user-friendly towards new users, it’s still your best bet for a secure, private and easy-to-use cloud backup service.
As you can see, there are many free cloud backup companies ready to offer you their services; some provide a lot of storage space, while others provide only a little, but make up for the deficit via unique features.

So, in the end, which service to choose obviously depends on you and your requirements.
We recommend reading our full reviews of the free cloud backup services mentioned on today’s list, before making any decisions.
Better yet, try using the free GBs each company gives, to test drive the service first, before putting down hard cash.
Thanks for sticking till the end, if you have any opinions or ideas to share with us, the comments section below is all yours.
