The numbers are pretty staggering. Every week, 140,000 hard drives crash in the U.S. with the average drive living about 5 to 10 years. That’s why you back things up, right? 

Of course, backups are often a pretty inexact science as well. Less than 10 percent of businesses back up their data every day. Over 20 percent of files aren’t protected at all. And even when there are backup files saved, 75 percent of IT managers say they couldn’t restore all of their lost data, because 60 percent of backups are incomplete and about half of all the data restore efforts fail.

Kinda makes you feel a little anxious about all that data and other precious files that you couldn’t bear to lose, doesn’t it?

Since you can’t depend on physical drives to keep everything safe, most individual and business users are now turning to the cloud to protect all their vital data — and with a lifetime of protection from a Polar Backup Cloud Storage account, users can rest assured that all their files are secure…even if they haven’t thought about them in months.

For a one-time $39.99 fee, users can stake out a 1TB patch of Polar Backup cloud storage space, set up their protocols, then basically not have to worry about losing an important file ever again.

Polar Backup runs on Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) state-of-the-art cloud platform, which guarantees smooth backups conducted whenever you need them. Users can set their own times to effectively update every file they want saved on their Windows or Mac OS system.

With those automatic “set it and forget it” updates, that archive of prized photos, videos, important documents, and other irreplaceable data will be backed up in the cloud forever. Polar Backup even knows when you’ve made changes to a file and will update the new version to storage during the next scheduled backup.

As for security, Polar is GDPR-compliant with full military-grade 256-Bit AES encryption that encrypts your data on your machine before transferring to the AWS servers, where they’re encrypted again. That process ensures that no one except you can ever access the data you save in your backup space.

And if you should need a file you’ve saved? Just retrieve it from your backup and after it’s thawed out of cold storage (a process that usually only takes a couple of hours), your file will be back from the digital dead.

A lifetime of access to 1TB of Polar Backup Cloud Storage space is a nearly $400 value, but with this deal, you can save hundreds and get it now for only $39.99.
