Polarbackup (opens in a new tab) launched a new ultra-affordable cloud storage service, offering the lowest prices with no compromise on reliability or security – and TechRadar readers get an exclusive 92% discount.
At $ 79.99 / £ 66.75 (about $ 125) for the 5 TB lifetime subscription, Polarbackup is less expensive than purchasing a hard drive of equivalent capacity. Lower capacities are available, but the 5TB version remains the cheapest and costs less than $ 16 per TB.
Your data is never deleted (as your subscription never expires), you can back up unlimited external devices – from USB drives to CCTV systems – and Polarbackup even supports file versioning.
Polarbackup supports both Windows and Mac systems and uses 256-bit zero-knowledge encryption to keep your files safe. The service is also powered by Zoolz (one of the best cloud storage out there (opens in a new tab) suppliers on the market), so you can be sure that your data is safe in the long term.

Just remember that this is a cold storage service, which means you won’t be able to recover your files immediately. You may have to wait up to 12 hours (but probably less) to access your files, which may be a problem for some.
