Arq cloud backup app debuts on Windows

Popular Mac cloud backup app Arq is now available on Windows 7 and later. The program makes it easy to back up your chosen folders to Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive/ Nearline, Amazon S3 and Glacier.

If you’re more used to Windows backup tools then Arq’s Mac heritage is obvious right away. There’s no big Explorer pane, button-packed ribbon or dense dialogs to navigate: all we had to do was choose a backup destination and the program was immediately ready to back up our user profile.

Despite that, there’s plenty of functionality here. You can set multiple backup destinations for the same job, schedule them to run automatically, and select and restore whatever you need (including previous versions of modified files) from within Arq.

The Preferences dialog offers more options to limit the total size of your backup, to throttle bandwidth use automatically (slow down uploads when other processes are using the network), and to send email alerts when backups finish or have errors.

30 day trial builds of Arq are available now for Windows 7+ and OS X 10.7+.
