Offsite daily encrypted backup via Dropbox
Authored by: bcamp1973 on Nov 23, '10 08:03:27AM

Anyone have an idea of how to do this with amazon S3? That would provide a MUCH cheaper solution for larger backups. Currently, I'm using Arq (http://www.haystacksoftware.com/arq/) I'm backing up my 50Gb iphoto library for around $5 a month. I use dropbox too, but don't feel it's monthly cost is worth upgrade at this point (for me anyway)...

I don't have an S3 account to test with, but I imagine it would be very similar, as Dropbox actually uses S3 as its storage. That's why Dropbox is more expensive--they give away 2GB free to anyone who wants it, so therefore they have to up-sell the higher-end storage.
