SpiderOak provides an easy, secure and consolidated free online backup, sync, sharing, access & storage solution for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
- Modernized look and feel of UI on Linux, Windows, and Mac
- New name: SpiderOakONE (We also provide a SpiderOak backup and sync product for Groups and another for Enterprise. This name change was necessary to reduce confusion going forward.)
- New branding consistent with SpiderOak.com (new logo, icons, etc.)
- Mac OS X now uses an installer rather than a drag-and-drop install
- New feature: Clear Upload Queue. In case you change your mind about uploading that Blu-ray disc image
- Automatic recovery from time traveling clients. You probably don't need to worry about this if you don't use SpiderOak inside a virtual machine with snapshots that you restore to. Time travel is the situation when, for example, the client moves "back in
- Updated SpiderOak Hive startup guide
- Improvements to space accounting
- Upgraded toolchain with updates to Qt, PyQT, Python and OpenSSL
- Along with the new name, paths to executables have changed. On Linux systems a symlink is placed in the previous location so cron jobs and such will continue to operate
- Similarly, names of some Windows registry keys have changed
- Application data has moved depending on OS: Mac uses ~/Library/Application Support/SpiderOak if you've been a user prior to 6.0 and ~/Library/Application Support/SpiderOakONE if you started with 6.0. Linux uses ~/.config/SpiderOakONE, and Windows uses %L
- Some under the hood changes paving the way for new features in 6.1
- Fix to Windows MSI installer to disallow installing the 32 bit application alongside a 64 bit application
- Fixed an issue on Linux that would sometimes prevent multiple users of a local machine from using SpiderOak concurrently
- Retired support for Mac OS X Lion (10.7). Current Mac OS X is 10.10, and allegedly only 0.04% of Mac users are currently 3 major OS versions behind

Yunio is a scam... SpiderOak is OK
Backblaze has Unlimited Online Backup $5 a month

Owncloud people, unlimited space for fre! Why do people waste their time paying for cloud services??
Reviewing 5.1.6 (Jul 19, 2014)
I have used SpiderOak reliably for over a year, and my only two complaints about it are that it retains an awful lot of "unknown" files. I suspect those files are files that I have deleted from my computer, but nowhere in SO's help file is this indicated.

Yunio gives away 1TB for free, linux mac and windows clients. Get that, avoid this.
