SOS Online Backup: Top Security and Archiving

SOS Online Backup

$4.99 per month or $44.99 per year


PROS Robust security options. Archival features. Can back up external and network drives. Local backup.

CONS Outdated desktop and mobile interfaces. Continuous protection limited to individual files. No File Explorer integration. No free or unlimited storage accounts.

SOS Online Backup offers more advanced security options than most other online backup services, as well as some special features, including the ability to back up concurrently to a local folder and to truly archive your files. We also like that a single license is good for several computers and unlimited mobile devices, but its storage rates are expensive. Beyond price, our only complaint with this otherwise excellent service is that its desktop and mobile apps are in need of a design refresh.


SOS is one of the most expensive online backup options we’ve reviewed: For $4.99 per month or $44.99 per year, you get only 50GB of storage. Paying $7.99 per month or $79.99 per year bumps the limit up to 100GB. Plans are available all the way up to a whopping 10TB for $299.99 per month or $2,999.99 per year. Interested users can sign up for a 15-day free trial account, which doesn’t require a credit card.

By comparison, IDrive gives you 2TB of space for an unlimited number of computers at $69.50 per year. Backblaze offers an unlimited storage plan
