- Dear lazy web. I want to use a Mac Server client to backup a HD to S3 (smartly - so only copying changes). Also on a schedule. Any ideas?
Arq is superb! http://t.co/IN6UChem
I've always liked the look and feel of this one: http://t.co/EdbClEFU
I can only think of setting it up with Chronosync to be honest. Perhaps Retrospect works too, but can't say for sure :)
Depends how secure you'd like it, Arq if super secure and only that computer accesses it. Otherwise I'd use transmit or rsync
I do that and use chronosync for the syncing and Jungledisk to mount the S3 bucket
not sure if it's possible, but rsync would allow you to only copy changes. Unsure if you can rsync direct to S3 though.
We use Arq which seems to work pretty well.
have you tried @crashplan? it backs up to an HD that you can host at home, for free - and you don't even notice it
JungleDisk Backup Vaults do that but you do not have direct file access inside the backups (need to dl and unpack)
'rsync -avz --delete -e ssh /Volumes/HD/ me@s3server:HD' with cron. Slashes are important. Put them just like I did.
Could you have Carbon CC copy only changes to watched folder, then Automator up to S3?
