Okay, I bet most of the users of CloudBacko would like to know the backup speed performance of cloud storage that CloudBacko supports. So, we’ve done a simple test by backing up 100,000 small files to the 6 most popular storage, including Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage, Amazon S3, Dropbox (free), Google Drive (free), Microsoft OneDrive (free).
Here’s the result:
6 min 58 sec
Google Cloud Storage
7 min 41 sec
8 min 20 sec
9 min 47 sec
Google Drive (free)
14 min 15 sec
Microsoft OneDrive (free)
47 min 21 sec*
This test result is for reference only. It may vary upon geographical location, bandwidth available, machine specification, hard drive speed, and other factors. If you want to do the test with the same 100,000 files, you can download the zipped file by clicking here. Unzip it to a local hard drive, and then create an individual backup set for each cloud storage. Run a full backup to each cloud storage to test the speed.
*Due to the limitation of Microsoft OneDrive free account, backup to Microsoft OneDrive took much longer.

Most home users have Dropbox and Google Drive for syncing documents across different machines, as well as sharing documents to friends and colleagues. However, CloudBacko lets you make use of Dropbox for another similar yet different purpose, backup. Why use CloudBacko for backing data to Dropbox while users can directly backup to there. Well, first of all, CloudBacko will encrypt all the data on your local machine before transmitting the data to Dropbox. And we’ll encrypt all the Filenames and Contents so that no one from Dropbox will be able to know what you have backed up. Another different is that we allow you to group unlimited Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive accounts into one, so that you can essentially get “unlimited free cloud storage” for backup. Multiple accounts from Dropbox can also be grouped. This is a feature you won’t get from a single Dropbox account.
Okay, this video shows you how you can use Dropbox as a backup destination.
