This software is amazing. Versioned, appropriately aged backups. It's like having an Infinite Time Machine, or at least as infinite as your resources and budget allow.

My photographs and anything else I've painstakingly worked on are backed up regularly using Amazon S3's Glacier storage class, and nearly 600GB is costing me about USD$4/month. Using the more readily available S3 storage class is a bit more expensive, but my current working catalogs for Lightroom and Documents live there.

I know that I can now use my local Time Machine volume for convenience and, in case of emergency, recover with Arq. This software has already saved hundreds of hours of my spouse's dissertation research once, which not only makes it a bargain at twice the price, but it enabled me to be the conquering hero which I can't even put a pricetag on. I should mention I recovered this research using the Arq mobile app. o/

The addition of other storage providers including/especially *any existing sftp server* is fantastic.

Downloaded the "demo" and it demands a license key or exits. Interesting demo.

Still no X-Trans sensor support? Really?

There is a non-trivial number of us. Even Apple figured that out.

Truecrypt is more rigorously audited.

no argument here, it's a nice gesture, but until it has been the recipient of peer review I don't know that I'd recommend it over alternatives.

I also think it's monumentally bad advice for the developer to suggest not using FileVault.

There is nothing better than Arq on any platform. Heard an interview with the developer on the hellyeah! show and haven't looked back.

$75 is a lot of money for something Apple's OS X Server does a lot better for $19.
