Did Tarsnap disappear from AUR? I cannot find it any more and old links are dead.

What's wrong with the one in the [community] repo?

Re: Online Backup?

I use a cloud storage site www.file1.info that has 50GB free storage. Actually, I have four accounts, so 200GB of free storage. There used to be a limit on the amount of registrations per email address but not anymore. I just encrypt my backups with truecrypt, upload the files and at the settings page I've set everything to private by default. Besides that I also have a backup on an HDD, updated once a month and kept at another location, just to be sure.

Re: Online Backup?

It says 5GB on the upload page but that is the maximum per upload you can do at once, at the login page you can see you get 50GB

Re: Online Backup?

Free Dropbox account with a few MB bonuses from friends. For sensitive data there's a TrueCrypt container (it only uploads the bits that are changed, not the whole file). Good enough for me.

Re: Online Backup?

This one looks good: SpiderOak.

- 2GB free storage (can be more)
- fully encrypted, incremental backups, sync, multiple machines on one account
- gui client for multiple platforms

The only downside I can see is that the client takes up 60-70MB ram even when idle and minimised to tray. But it does look very pleasing and functional.

Re: Online Backup?

Another vote here for tarsnap! Easy to use and encrypted at Amazon S3 makes me feel safe wink Also, the pricing is really good explained on their site.

Re: Online Backup?

I just started using Tarsnap also.

Cost is very cheap that is for sure.

However, I wonder if I have missed some config because whether I am creating an archive, or restoring a small file, it seems to take a while. This is on a reasonably fast broadband connection and a decent box.

Anyone have anything they can share about general performance on tarsnap?

thanks a bunch
steve.

Re: Online Backup?

Jungle Disk looks a bit expensive though. What are you paying roughly each month?

Re: Online Backup?

Well so far I have payed ~$5 per month !!! according to my calculations it should be about $57 though ($0.15 per GB + $5 per month suscription) big_smile no idea of the pricing scheme they are using, but it works for me. Even if it is $57 per month I dont find that expensive for the amount of data I am backing up.

Maybe the pricing is incremental or something, but all my files are there (I triple checked) and still the invoice comes like that big_smile

With tarsnap having 350gb of data would result on a monthly price of $105 + bandwidth (0.30 per GB + 0.30 GB bandwidth) (jungle disk doesnt charge for bandwidth), more than double the price.

Also please note I am talking about the Server Edition (which is what I use), desktop editions have the same pricing I think, the only change is the subscription amount ($3 per month for desktop)

hope it helped you!
