Arq 1.5.5

Creating backups is not a task that anyone undertakes with a sense of joy, but it is an important part of computer ownership if you want to protect your valuable files. Creating copies of files on a local hard drive is one solution, but the risk of hardware failure means that opting for an online solution may be a better option.

This is where Arq can help. Making use of your Amazon S3 account, Arq provides completely secure online backup complete with 256-bit AES encryption. A simple drag and drop interface means that folders can be included in your backup with ease, and file restoration is equally simple.

Providing you have an internet connection available, Arq can be used to backup your important files no matter where you may be, without the need to transport an external hard drive with you.

Arq maintains backups of different versions of files as well, automatically creating a new backup of updated files on an hourly basis. To prevent the application from hogging your internet connection, it is possible to place restrictions on upload speeds so other network traffic is not slowed down.
