How do I know when my backup is finished?

This article has moved to our new Help Center and will no longer be updated on this page. Please see the Help Center for the newest version.

You can determine if your backup is complete by looking at the Home tab, which gives you an estimate of how much of your backup has completed and what remains.

  • The Overview button shows how many items you have already uploaded and how many remain.

  • The Activity button shows you what files are in line to be encrypted and uploaded to the SpiderOak servers and how much progress has been made on each.

  • The Actions button lists all actions that SpiderOak is taking: uploading, scanning, syncing, etc.

  • The Completed button shows you which files have been uploaded to SpiderOak.

Note that this information resets each time you close SpiderOak, so it only displays files which were uploaded since the last time you opened SpiderOak.

The information above is based on the current version of our application. If you are running an older version, download and install our current version, then follow the instructions above.
