Arq Backup and Amazon Cloud Drive – a Perfect Match There’s a new sheriff in town when it comes to my online backups, and that’s Arq Backup. For several years, I’ve been using Crashplan for all the Macs in my house.
A local back up is literally taking a the data on your Mac and copying it to another drive in your home or office. Both copies are in the same place, so you can easily get to the back up when and if you need it, and either keep it up-to-date or restore from it if something bad happens to the original.
Description EASY ONLINE BACKUP Arq makes it simple to back up all the files on your Mac, just add your folders to Arq, and it backs them up to your own Amazon Glacier account ($.01/GB per month storage), or your SFTP server. It even backs up and restores all the special metadata that other products don't, including resource forks, ACLs, and creator codes.
Following the initial backup, Arq automatically makes incremental backups every hour, every day, only uploading the files that have changed since your last backup (similar to Time Machine). Take control of your Mac's backups with Arq!
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT It's easy to set up, and it just works. More importantly, you'll never have to worry about overpaying for cloud storage. Arq automatically drops the oldest backups to keep within the budget you set for your Amazon Glacier account. Plus, it encrypts all your backups with a password that never leaves your computer, so no one can read your cloud backups. TOP FEATURES. Automatic online backup (at customizable intervals).

Arq is super-easy online backup for the Mac. Back up to your own Google Drive storage (15GB free storage), your own Amazon Glacier ($.01/GB per month storage) or S3, or any SFTP server. Arq backs up and faithfully restores all the special metadata of Mac files that other products don't, including resource forks, ACLs, and creator codes. Arq works like Time Machine, except you don't have to remember to plug in your external hard drive. Following the initial backup, Arq automatically makes incremental backups every hour, every day, uploading just the files that have changed since your last backup.
Arq keeps hourly backups for the past 24 hours, daily backups for the past month, and weekly backups for everything older than a month. Arq lets you set a budget for storage, and it automatically drops the oldest backups to keep within the budget. Arq backs up everything with no limits. It backs up files of any size, external drives, and network drives. Arq compresses and 'de-duplicates' your backups, never storing the same file twice in the cloud. Arq encrypts all your backups with a password that never leaves your computer, so no one can read your cloud backups. You can back up to multiple 'targets'.
Back up some files to Glacier, some to S3, some to an SFTP server, etc. You can also back up to Amazon, GreenQloud, DreamObjects, Google Cloud Storage, or any other S3-compatible service. WHAT’S NEW Version 5.7.8: Fixed Issues.
Switched back to Dropbox V1 API for getting quota information because the V2 API returns incorrect results for some users, resulting in 'not enough space' errors from Arq. Fixed an issue with calculating free space at Dropbox. Fixed an issue which could object-not-found errors when restoring from Glacier. Added a workaround for a date-parsing problem with Dropbox.
If Google Drive returns the error 'download quota for this file has been exceeded', wait and retry. Fixed an issue that could cause an email report to say '0 errors' when in fact there were errors. Release Notes for Arq Backup Version 5.7.7.
