Polarbackup (opens in a new tab) has introduced a new ultra-affordable cloud storage service, offering rock-bottom prices on reliability or security, and TechRadar readers get an exclusive 92% discount.
At $79.99 / £66.75 (about AU$125) for a 5TB lifetime subscription, Polarbackup is cheaper than buying an equivalent capacity hard drive. Lower capacities are available, but the 5TB version is still the cheapest at less than €16 per TB.
Your data is never deleted (because the subscription never expires), you can back up an unlimited number of external devices, from USB drives to CCTV systems, and Polarbackup even supports file versioning.
Polarbackup is compatible with Windows and Mac and uses 256-bit zero-knowledge encryption to protect your files. The service is also operated by Zoolz (one of the best cloud storage providers (opens in a new tab) on the market) so you can be sure that your data will be safe and secure for the long term.

Remember that this is a cold storage service, which means you won't be able to recover files instantly. You may have to wait up to 12 hours (but probably less) to access your files, which could cause problems for some.
