  • SpiderOak is a fantastic choice, especially if you have a number of computers to back up from and you don't have several TBs of data among them.

  • SpiderOak is a good choice if you need to backup small sized files from many devices and if privacy is your main concern. The fact that your data is protected by a private security key by default, makes it a secure option to protect the integrity of your data. However, it is not as simple and complete as other services available for even less. While it provides an effective service and advanced features, it may not be the best solution for users that don’t have much experience with online backup.

  • While the price is a little higher than some other services you are able to backup up multiple computers with one account. You could easily backup your main desktop, the kids computer and your laptop all on one account. Overall SpiderOak is a solid backup service perfect for home and business online backup needs.

  • For the most secure computer backup, users should strongly consider using SpiderOak. With a high-level encryption, users do not have to worry about privacy issues because only the user (and designated friends who have the password to the ShareRooms) will be able to access the data. Users can have 2 GB of free storage space, but if they would like more, they can purchase a subscription that allows unlimited storage space.

  • An impressive, user-friendly backup and sync client is let down by inflexible and expensive paid-for options. If you only have 2GB to back up, however, it’s well worth trying out.

  • If your business needs a truly secure cloud server, our recommendation would be to run an ownCloud server on hardware that you have physical control of. However, if that’s not an option for either space or maintenance reasons, SpiderOak is a competitively-priced and convincingly secure alternative.

  • SpiderOak is a great choice for users who want to make sure their files are kept private, but probably more importantly, it gives you the ability to access all of your files, no matter where you are and what device you are using. It’s also a good online backup for users who only need a small amount of space since the first 2 GB are free.

  • Overall SpiderOak is a great general use secure backup solution which we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending.

    Pros:

    • Free option available
    • “Zero knowledge” privacy, which will be adequate for most
    • Good cross platform capabilities
    • Great documentation

    Cons:

    • Solid but rather unfriendly user interface
    • Privacy compromises when using mobile apps
    • Unexplained crash on first launch of the software

  • SpiderOak online backup provides a protection system that has many positive features and which may make it a good choice for your backup needs, whether for yourself personally or for a small business.

  • Great for more advanced users of cloud storage and online backup, Spideroak's plethora of options can at first glance seem confusing to the cloud novice. Once you get the hang of it though, Spideroak is easy to use and very comprehensive. Its unique syncing and sharing features separate it from the pack, and if used properly, can really help you stay organized.
