Simply share your referral link with at least 3 people per year! For each paying customer you refer, you will get $20 off your subscription (and they will, too). Keep referring new customers and your subscription will be perpetually free. Extra referral bonuses roll over.
Your membership is billed annually at the beginning of the period, and any cloud storage is billed monthly at the end of the period based on actual usage.
The 30-day free trial is given to all new members. No credit card is required until the end of your trial! At 30 days, you will be billed for your first year of membership and for your first month of cloud storage used during that month (if any). If you cancel your membership before the trial ends, you will not be charged, even if you used cloud storage or already added a payment card to your account.
With a Relica membership, you get unlimited backups to your own computers and friends' computers from up to 10 different computers. Unlike most other backup software, our unlimited offering includes network-attached storage (NAS) devices.
There is a $1/mo. minimum for cloud storage (if enabled). This only applies to accounts that have a Relica Cloud destination. It ensures that we cover credit card and other transactional fees related to accessing and maintaining cloud storage.
The biggest factor in your monthly cloud storage bill is how many clouds you choose to back up to. All cloud storage is optionally added on at your discretion, so there's no surprises. We recommend backing up to at least 2 cloud storage providers for a good balance of cost and availability.
You can then set a retention period to delete old backups automatically. That will help keep your space usage (and thus your bill) under control.
The cloud storage pricing shown on this page is for the managed Relica Cloud, which we recommend for most customers. However, there is no extra charge for backing up to your own cloud storage but you will have to set up and maintain it yourself.
