Your files are in good hands

Before we take documents, photos, music and other valuable data to the cloud, we encrypt it all with a strong, military-grade algorithm. This way, you can be sure your private files remain... private.

Combine cloud and local backup

If you don’t want to rely on your Internet connection, back up your files to an external hard drive. Or, do both cloud and local backup, for a double protection and convenient access to your files.

Manage your backups online

Of course, there’s an online interface allowing you to manage your backups from anywhere – or to restore older versions of your files, if there are any. You can access it by clicking here ›

Why BackUp?

Hardware eventually fails.

Hard drives, flash drives, and DVDs don’t last forever. And when they crash, it’s already too late.

Some people are mean.

Not everyone, of course. But how else would you describe a person that steals your laptop, along with all your data?

Even you have weaker moments

When did you last delete a file you later needed? Or spilled your coffee onto a laptop keyboard? Or does this happen just to us?

System requirements

You’ll run BackUp on Windows 8, 7, Vista or XP, with at least a 1 GHz Pentium 4 processor, 512MB RAM, and 1 GB of free hard drive space. Your Internet connection allows at least 128 kbit/s upload speed.


Try avast! BackUp free for 30 days. During that time, you’ll get 25 GB for your files.

Your browser is obsolete.

1. On 8 April 2014, Microsoft stops support for Internet Explorer browsers running on Windows XP. This will put your computer and data, such as credit card and online banking details, at greater risk to hackers and malware.

2. Several browser alternatives exist, but we at AVAST use and recommend Chrome, as we find it to be the most-secure option available.
