After years of secretly watching the annual ‘Oprah’s Favorite Things’ special, I finally get to have my own Oprah moment. Today µTorrent is giving away free licenses for Digital Lifeboat.
Yup. Free. Digital Lifeboat is a file backup service that securely stores (and restores) your digital content. That includes your photos, music, important documents, home videos and more.
Did we mention free? We mean it. No purchase necessary, no credit card and no upsells. Scouts honor. All we are asking for is your feedback in the comment section below.
This is a limited offer. We only have 1000 free licenses available so act fast.
UPDATE: All the free lifetime licenses we had are now gone, but you can still get 10 GB free with the following installer:

The interface looks straightforward to work with and it appears to be a safe way of inexpensively outsource your data, and thus be prepared for an unexpected disaster. Great product!
Gotta luv Free thx guyz
Thanks, i needed some good cluod backup service
Got to love more backup options for those rare files
Looking good 😀
I love utorrent! it does what it is supposed to and doesnt eat up a ton of memory in my computer
is a mac version?
Very cool, thanks!
This thing seems great. Commenting just to get the free license 😛
Very interesting. Thank you for offering me this facility. It’s sth that a netbook user really needs!
Thank you so much for this! uTorrent is amazing!
Hey, this looks pretty nice – I like the UI, it’s very clean and intuitive, and it’s very easy to get started. Thanks for showing this to us!
I’ll tell you what I think once I use it. I’m just posting to let you know that I am Downloading
I’m always looking for a good cloud backup service, uTorrent has been great as client so I’m more than happy to give Digital Lifeboat a try.
If it works half as good as uTorrent I will be very happy.
Haven’t looked much into it, but it looks like a great programs and if I could get one of the licenses it would awesome!
been using utorrent for years and have never had a issue with it
This is just awesome, just the other day filled up my external drives, perfect timing!
And Utorrent is definitely the best BitTorrent client on the market, and for free(except premium)!
Been using it for years now, and it´s so easy to use in comparison to other clients (:
Really cool offer. I’ve been using uTorrent since before the BitTorrent acquisition, and it’s great to see a company doing this.
Wow, this is awesome! Keep up the good work, guys, this is the light tower of free speech and freedom on the internet. Such an awesome idea 🙂
Hello I signed up and it says i have the free for lifetime…. does this include all the benefits of a premium membership? or is it a limited premium?
its really awesome how could i get free license?
Just downloaded… Seems good!!
Backing up files now, I’ve heard good things about you guys! Thanks uTorrent!
Once again you guys are great, keep it 7p and thank you.
Wow, thanks for this! I’ve been looking for an easy, no brainer backup solution for my pc for sometime now and this definitely fits the bill!
Excellent giveaway! Now to see if I’m one of the lucky 1000!!
the utorrent is cool
This is awesome, i’ve been wanting a good backup program. Thank you very much! 🙂
You guys are awesome for doing this. Its great! ive been paying for different backup service but free would be amazing!!!
Is that it? I downloaded it and installed it. I’ll try adding some things to it.
pretty effin sweet , tghis may be very handy
So just install and thats that? Is the free license is in the installer?
Looks great so far thanks, for letting me know about it.
THANKS GUYS! I downloaded the installer from the link posted and it worked like a charm! Quick, fast installation, and I automatically became a Member for Life. I have unlimited memory now 😀
This is Great! thank you so much! Now I can free up a little space from less important files that i dont constantly need! THANKS!!!!!
Defintely love using utorrent. Yup.
After now installing the software it is very easy to use and default install just runs in the background.
but for more advance use it’s easy to choose which files to backup
Thank you very much, always looking for extra storage
Thanks. Will test it out. Is there a way to limit the upload?
the premium package is free, or what is? i don;t get it.
I’m in. It’s free. There’s no downside. But is it just the 10gb offer or unlimited?
Thanks guys! This is just what I needed! Already backing up!
thanks guys much apreciated
I dont belive it , nothing good is ever free
I love the new features of uTorrent such as the automatic transcoding for consoles, but the ads cheapen the experience. I have always used uTorrent but the ads put you in the same boat as clients such as Vuze.
Always loved what you guys have done. Keep up the good work.
Great service with unlimited storage, no limitations, and it works fine!
Downloaded, registered and now my account says “Status: Free for life” 😀
Thanks for the offer! You guys have always been my favorite!
This programme has helped me launch myself in my digital career in a country with small data caps. People can download my content at controlled rates and get it all without having to do it over and over again. Makes it so much easier to get more clients
This free give away is awesome !
So I installed it, and registered through the program, now what? How do I know if I got the unlimited lifetime licence?
I was able to check it through the website, this is very cool. 🙂
Is there an approximate date set for a mac release? Or was that never in the picture?
How long does it take to complete the scan I downloaded the app and says its scanning but nothing has been backed up
Amazingly easy install. I use Mozy Home right now but only get 2 GB with it for free and they don’t have an unlimited option. This is the cheapest unlimited I’ve ever seen. But I can’t figure out how to refer friends for that extra 1 GB for each friend. I could be wrong but the beta looks like it’s prepared to backup all 233 GB of my files. At my upload speed that will probably take several weeks.
Anyway, appreciate the chance to try it out.
I really would love this program
hmm, not mac version available.. 🙁
I feel obliged to give feedback.
Couldn’t register with an alias email (like firstname.lastname@example.org). I’ve selected a (large) folder to back-up but nothing has been transferred yet (it’s scanning GBs). It lacks a minimize-to-tray option. The default menu is separate from the files menu (of what to back-up). The selection GUI is straight-forward, showing an expandable directories trees and a checkbox next to them. The installation was quick. The default menu tab does the same job as the tabs themselves, providing buttons to the other menus. It sounds easy to use as the tutorial (automatic) instructs, operating as a shell extension ( via the context menu of documents (right-click)). The back-up tab menu has three delay options (pause backup for…) that I don’t know if I’ll ever use, but actually seems likely since I do a similar thing with Dropbox but deactivate it altogether. The FAQ informs me back-up files are stored invisibly on other members’ computers and it can only be hoped that this is handled smoothly and even with utilitarianism such that natural limits will grow as the user-base grows. I haven’t hit a file-size limit.
These are my first impressions.
r3tro i would love your job man, working for best site on the planet FACT, hope im posting comment in right place for giveaway,
I don’t have any feedback because I just downloaded it but so far, so good!
And btw, THANKS!
Awesome product just as good if not better than the competition! Would recommend to frends!
P2P back up? so the back up is located in a lot of other people’s computer?
would not let me install it. said the following: we’re sorry. we’ve encountered a problem we cannot resolve. please contact support at “insert email address”.
Go uTorrent team. I really want to get in the beta team. Thx.
awesome offer guyzzz…. way to go 🙂
Thanks for the lifetime offer!!
Thanks for giving this link, we all appreciate being able to save files online.
So we just install that and we get unlimited storage?
Oh ok i get it, just logged onto by account and saw Free For Life, thanks!
Got my piece of cake 🙂
Thank you so much 🙂 🙂 🙂
I would definitely like to get that. Love utorrent
It’s a good idea to keep some sort of backup and Digital Lifeboat is a good choice. Easy to use
Does it not support proxy with authentication?
the program looks okay .but there should be a way to automatically compress the files to save time uploading it? still free is free .i would love to have it for free 😛
Hey torrent kings,
First of all, thanks heaps, cool offer. Appreciate it muchly. Cloud backup is where it’s at.
Now. I downloaded this software, but I am wondering since you say it’s a limited offer and all, where will i find a serial key/license file for this software so they know I downloaded this through you?
I’m currently away from my PC but i downloaded the .EXE to my mac, to transfer it over when I’m at my pc. Perhaps an e-mail answer would be better since I may not come back to this page. Although I’m sure the public would love to see the reply too since I’m guessing this may be a question on others’ minds.
Thank you so much!
-Shane of Australia
seems too good to be true but i’m uploading now and will review the service once i’ve got to know how good it is
Took the bait and trying to get my files “back-up’d”
Seems quite slow at the moment : /
Not sure if it will work.
Gonna try it out. Looks like a decent service.
OK, I installed the software from the above link and setup a DLB account, but how can I verify that I have the free licence and what exactly does that mean anyhow?
I asked a question, which has not been published, never mind answered – is there any good reason for this?
great service but why no mac app
i love the service u guys are offering shows how much u really care about your users and the community thank you very much
Thumbs up for your Optrah moment 😉
utorrent has been my best friend since 2006! its the fastest P2P software I’ve used and trust me I’ve tried out almost every single one available!!! torrent is by far the best! keep it up guys 🙂
digitallifeboat rulez! Thanks R3tr0
This will actually get me into exploring online backup solution! Thanks µTorrent for bringing this offer 🙂
vir gratis?kostenlos? Is there anything in this world that is free? There must be a trick here somewhere;);)! Thanks in advance anyways!
Great way to keep an updated backup!
Absolutely awesome! I’ve been looking for this type of service for the longest time; who knew uTorrent would? Well, thank you so much people at uTorrent, you’ve made me a happy camper lol.
Daily uTorrent user, would love to see this Lifeboat in action.
Wow…10GB free for life? Not a bad way to go!!
wow…10GB free for life? nice!!
Love uTorrent and now this makes me love you guys even more!
easiest way to keep your files from being lost. saved all my pics and music when i had to rebuild my laptop. so thankful to have Lifeboat
Free-For-Life backup! That is awesome!
well, thanks for it
and i will try out :/
Great service! Thanks!
Hey thanks ! Looks like a great service!
You guys made my day 🙂
This is pretty cool 🙂 definitely outranks carbonite by a long shot hope to get the license key!
I like the idea that my stuff is automagically backed up. I’ve been using a few services recently but many of them can’t offer me more than a token of 2GBof space. Looks like Digital Lifeboat has the space I so sorely need!
Cool offer. Thanks.
Seems to take quite a while in scanning the files I selected, it makes me wonder what exactly it is looking for. For it too take so long in scanning the files I have selected. Thx for the free gift though…
You guys just don’t stop blowing our mind. The installer is very small and doesn’t seem to add any load on the system. I just had to select a few folders and that was it. Now the files will always be backed up 😀
Well lets get to the bugs. Firstly I am on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 operating system. As soon as I installed the software I started the control center. It had scanned and detected my files. Just to try out the file selector I just decided to add a random folder. The software successfully scanned it too but for some reason has been stuck on 0% upload. I have waited for like 30 mins and its still on 0%. I have an upload speed of 60kbps so it may take sometime. If the files start uploading or not, I will let you know.
In these times of hard drive shortage its really more economical to buy the premium (Unlimited) version of Digital Lifeboat then pay hundreds for a backup drive.
Hi again, I hope you have read my previous comment. I just wanted to inform that the upload is still stuck at 0% and its been more then an hour 🙁
Nice product. Low memory footprint which is good for my old pc. However, it doesnt have file sharing features like that of sugarsync and dropbox. But it does it’s job anyway, so it’s still good. 😀
I’m not too crazy about how this Windows service won’t stop on command. There is no reason why I shouldn’t be able to stop a service.
This is a dog. A clunky interface with no stop or start for the Windows service… a service that does not stop properly and finally a frozen interfaced requiring a manual process kill. While I liked the idea of a distributed P2P cloud technology, this is not ready for prime time.
One other concern I have is of their TOS. It looks like it was written by a lawyer who has never read the Company’s mission statement.
Example, while your data is encrypted and ‘safe from prying eyes’ there is a content disclaimer and all kinds of rubbish about copyrights etc etc etc. The also say they reserve the right to remove such content … but how would anyone but myself , know of such a violation unless OTHERS including themselves are some how mining the data for information??? Huh?
Another item which tells me I can’t rely on this service is a disclaimer for taking down the service. So I’m supposed to rely on a backup solution through a service provider that clearly states they can shutdown any day of the week and I’m SOL? Nice but not for me =)
introducing Bit Torrent Torque
Ashok on introducing Bit Torrent torque
Installed DL on friday afternoon, it scanned my laptop easy enough, but when it came to backing up my 515Gb of data it got to 42Mb on saturday morning and has been stuck at that level since then. I am now trying only backing up one folder at a time, but having no joy with that as it just re scanned the folder i chose but as yet has uploaded precisely zilch
Hi Chris I had a similar issue. If you are also on windows 7 just end the process from task manager and then restart the Control center with “Run as Administrator”. Let me know if this solves the issue.
I had the same problem once it got to 42.5 MB it just stopped, however it is doing the arrows indicating it is backing up, but it still stays at 42.5 MB. I tried ending the process and restarting it as an administrator but have had no luck. 🙁
Not bad, but better to have a progress bar, some clear info of how many data you could upload and maybe a click to view list of things that are chosen to upload
really cools service is being provided free by the coolest p2p software “uTorrent” wow thanks !!!
Love the program, just downloaded and installed. Seems safe and legit. Looks simple, quick and easy. Thanks for the share Utorrent, love it! Can’t wait to see where it goes when it is out of beta 😀 Thanks for informing me of this awesome, simple way to backup my files online safely 😀
great product saves alot of worry
didn’t receive my license? 🙁
I would try using a different Email and trying again because I just got mine last night. Let me know if it works! 🙂

OMG! This is amazing! Just what I need. Thank you.
Very interesting product
I used to use Windows, and uTorrent was hands-down my favorite torrenting program. I have a couple of things to submit though:
You should make uTorrent support multiple connections like Vuze does; it’s really a boon when you have a slow wired connection and the neighbor’s slow wireless and you combine it into 500kb/s.
Also, pay attention to some of us Linux people! It wouldn’t be too much to make a .deb for uTorrent end-user, instead of the .tar of the server! You could even add it to the repositories for easier access by people trying linux for the first time who don’t like Transmission. Otherwise, we’re all stuck with Deluge…
Wow looks like a great idea. About to try it. Where do I get the license???
Thank you so much for this offer! uTorrent is great app!
Seems to do the job. Not a fan though of the fact that the software cant be stopped/started on demand, or the fact that it continues to scan a folder, even after excluding it from the backups.
Coo, will check out the backup service.
Huh, this seems promising. Bless your hearts. You are all gentlemen and scholars.
This thing is spoke amazing! Gonna be using it daily
just downloaded and its pretty simple and easy to use. i like it…
This is very nice of you. Thank you.
This is very generous of you. Thank you.
This is such a great offer! I’m quite flattered, thank you. 😀
Are you kidding me?!?!?!? WTF UNLIMITED DATA FOR 39.95/YR??? I have 7TB to get out…. is that a problem??? 😀
It’s wonderful, intuitive design, easy to use. What else more do I need!!
I like it, it gives 10 gb of free storage and an easy windows explorer menu for management.
Heya, this looks pretty neat. Have been needing to find a decent backup service that’s free. Just curious if this uses the bittorrent protocol to transfer files or how it works. I know that you get a free account but it doesn’t seem to be working for me, not sure if you have to send me something for it to work or what but according to the site it’s supposed to be free anyway so not sure what’s up.
Bah, thought I responded already but I guess NoScript blocked it the first time around. Just checking in. I grabbed the app, seems like it’s alright. File selection area is kinda buggy and by buggy I mean slow and messes up if you check things quickly in succession or click then unclick and click again (same stuff or clicking a parent folder of a sub folder). I’m down to test the crap out of it if I can get it to work. The free version isn’t even backing up anything so not real sure if it’s just down right now or what’s going on. I know it’s in a test version so error logs etc. probably aren’t available but it’d be nice if there was a way to view that kinda stuff even if it was just a text file. At any rate, do I need to do something to get access to the version mentioned here or is this just the “free” version already offered?
Hmm.. My comment post dont show.
Maybe this one will?
The app seems good.
Hi, I had installed the software and had been using it for a while, then due to an hard drive error I had to reinstall Windows 7 operating system. As soon as my pc was up and running I installed digital lifeboat but my account recognized this pc as a dfifferent one and I don’t have unlimited storage in this one. Can I replace or change my pc’s, if yes then how???
Great to share and download large files that otherwise take just too long to download from the internet.
utorrent is the SH*T ive tried MANY MANY others, and Utorrent is the most reliable, and it never changes! what a great offer..OOHH I HOPE I GET A FREE DLB LICENSE!!!
