mac default iconArq For Mac Publisher's description

Arq backs up the critical files on your Mac to the Internet.

Arq backs up the critical files on your Mac to the Internet.

Your backups are stored at Amazon S3 ("Simple Storage Service"), the gold standard of reliable online storage in the industry, backed by Amazon.com, a large stable company.

Backups of your Mac are complete and accurate, including all "metadata" -- something that many other online backup offerings can't claim (see results).

Super Easy
Drag and drop a folder into Arq to add it for automatic backup.

Drag and drop from a backup to immediately start restoring.

You're In Control
Arq stores your backup data in your own Amazon S3 account, encrypted with your own password -- neither Amazon nor Haystack Software has access.

Arq encrypts your data before it leaves your computer using AES-256, a government and industry standard.

Your backups are stored in an open, documented format. We've also delivered an open-source command-line utility called arq_restore that's hosted at github, so you can read your data anytime without depending on Haystack Software (although we're in this for the long haul, so we'll be around for a long, long time!)

Perfect Complement to Time Machine
Time Machine works well and provides fast restore, but you have to remember to plug in your backup device (unless you have a Time Capsule), and it doesn't cover all scenarios:

* theft of computer and backup device
* backup while traveling (unless you bring your backup drive)

Arq backs up whenever/wherever there's an Internet connection.

Arq restores all your data correctly, unlike some other online backup offerings. Backup Bouncer is a test suite independently developed by Nathaniel Gray (author of HexaLex) to verify the accuracy of backup products restoring Mac file data and metadata -- in his words, to "keep the ugly backup tools out of the club." I tested Arq and some other leading online backup offerings and the results are presented here:

What's New in This Release:

В· Fixed another issue where various network errors could cause the backup to fail instead of retrying.

System Requirements:

PPC / Intel, Mac OS X 10.5 or later
Program Release Status: Minor Update
