Back up your family's important files and memories

Make backups before you wish you had

Relica automatically copies your files to multiple places... just in case.
Relica backs up to three kinds of destinations
Relica backs up to hard drives
Relica backs up to other computers
Relica backs up to the cloud

Hard Drives

Back up to your external hard drives, USB flash drives, or mounted NAS drives whenever they're plugged in. Relica makes on-site backups easy and reliable.

Friends' Computers

Keep copies of your files off-site at no extra cost. Back up to other computers on your own account, or your friends' or family members' computers.

Relica Cloud

The easiest way to back up! The Relica Cloud replicates to up to 5 fully-redundant, independent cloud providers in real time with just a single upload of your data.

Back up to multiple destinations, effortlessly

Having more than one backup is important. For example, if you back up to a USB drive, but then your laptop is stolen along with that flash drive, you're out of luck! We recommend backing up to 2 or more destinations, and Relica makes that as easy as checking a box.

Relica Cloud: Backing up to the cloud puts your data out of harm's way, but it's still a single point of failure. While uploading just one copy of your data, Relica can replicate to up to 5 independent cloud providers in real-time so you can be assured your cloud backups are safe and available.

Local Folders: Back up to your own internal or external hard drives, USB flash drives, mounted NAS folders, etc. with the click of a button.

Friends' Computers: Relica lets you back up over the Internet to your friends' or family members' computers, or to other computers on your own account, for free off-site backup!

Restore lost files with confidence using Relica

Restore files with peace of mind

No one really wants a backup; they want to restore. We understand this better than any file backup company.

Relica's file restoration screen brings you peace of mind and confidence as your files appear nearly instantly in front of you.

Restores happen in the background after you choose where to download your files. As they are downloaded to your computer, they are decrypted and placed into their original folder structure in the location you choose.



Backups are organized by snapshot, which is a consistent view of each file as it was backed up. Snapshots allow you to restore a group of files to an approximate point in time.


Backups can run automatically on a schedule you choose. If your computer isn't on or awake during a scheduled backup, it can be run at the next opportunity.


All your data is encrypted on your computer using a password that only you know: it never leaves your computer, and no one else can read your backups.


Relica works on Windows, macOS, Linux, and BSD, with an intuitive interface that opens right in your web browser and is the same on every operating system.

Multi-cloud backups

Back up to multiple cloud storage providers for greater assurances of availability. Unlike other backup software, with Relica you need only upload your data once.

Relica Cloud

The Relica Cloud is a fully-managed, multi-cloud solution that is entirely automated. You just choose how many clouds to back up to!

Bring your own cloud

You can also back up to your own cloud storage or SFTP or WebDAV servers. Relica supports over a dozen providers!

Sustainable pricing

Unlike some other backup services, our pricing is designed to be affordable and sustainable at the same time. We don't have to rely on investor capital or sell your information to stay in business.

Smart maintenance

Backups need regular maintenance to ensure they're in good health. Relica takes care of this automatically.

Share your storage

Let other Relica users back up to your computer or hard drive for free. It's as easy as typing their email address and clicking a button.

Multiple destinations

Back up any set of files to one or more destinations of your choosing: local folders, friends' computers, or the Relica Cloud.


Backup repositories are stripped of duplicate data to reduce storage size on disk. Careful indexing preserves all your data nonetheless.

Open source restore

Relica backups can be restored with the open source tool restic, alleviating total reliance on Relica in case of emergencies.

Incremental backups

Each snapshot is incremental, meaning the backup operations are fast and storage needs are reduced.

Symlinks and dotfiles

Advanced files such as symbolic links and dotfiles are preserved in the backup, with no default or hidden exclude lists.

Command line interface

Relica has an elegant, cross-platform command line interface that can do everything the web UI does. The CLI is the same on all platforms.

Retention period

You can optionally set a retention period for each destination so that old snapshots are pruned away, freeing up space. By default, snapshots are unlimited.

No dependencies

Relica distributions are completely self-contained, and its binaries do not require any external system libraries (no JRE, no Python, no libc, etc).

Any sized files

Unlike some other backup solutions, Relica supports files of any size -- at no extra cost.

No usage caps

There are no arbitrary limits to the size of backups, the number of files, or the duration to keep snapshots.

Multiple computers

Unlike other consumer backup services, Relica allows you to back up multiple computers, including network storage devices, on a single subscription.

Custom backup sets

You choose what to back up: your entire drive, your home/user folder, or any other specific files. We don't choose for you.

Delete your files and have them, too

A Relica membership gives you unlimited backup to your own storage or other computers, with optional storage in the highly-available Relica Cloud. Try it all, free for 30 days!
