You must also manually select all the files and folders to back up. And although the company says it no longer throttles your connection after your backups reach a certain total size, and offers "upload speeds of up to 10 Mbps" (which is to say, the speed is artificially restricted on the server side), the maximum throughput I saw in my tests was only half that at 4.
64 Mbps. The Windows version of Carbonite lets you use a personal encryption key; you can select the option during setup or after the fact (as shown here). Mac users don't have this option. I had a hard time getting past Zoolz Home's awkward and unintuitive user interface. Once I figured it out and manually added the folders I wanted to back up, I tested throughput at a respectable 16.
83 Mbps. However, none of the settings I tried that were supposed to improve throughput-including Turbo mode and multithreaded uploads-improved that figure. Zoolz backs up your files a maximum of once every 12 hours, which is far too infrequent. And the restoration process is by far the most confusing I've ever seen: You have to launch a separate app to restore files, and although you can restore them in place, finding the ones you want is unreasonably hard.
The display doesn't even distinguish files from folders except by color, and it doesn't offer a hierarchical or tree display-you must double-click folders endlessly to drill down to the file you want, and repeat for each additional thing you want to restore.
Zoolz offers 1 TB of storage for 80 per year or 4 TB for 300 per year, which is pricy, though multiple computers can share that space. We also tested SOS Online Backup for a previous update to this guide; at the time, it met our criteria for inclusion. Since then, the company has changed its pricing, and the service no longer comes close to offering at least 1 terabyte of storage for less than 10 per month.
(We tested it only as a Windows option, as the service has no personal-key option for Mac. ) Finally, a few words about some well-known online backup services I didn't test because they failed to make my cut for one reason or another: Acronis True Image 2015: Although this service lets you back up every single file on your disk and do a "bare metal" restore if you wish, that's a process I wouldn't attempt using a broadband connection with a data cap.
And storage prices start at 50 per year for only 250 GB-plus another 50 for the software.
