Use Amazon S3 to automatically back up your Mac

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned JungleDisk which does exactly this (plus a whole lot more) and works great on the Mac.

JungleDisk is junk

It mounts your S3 bucket as a WebDAV volume, so every process on the system has read-write access to it. This is practically the same as running everything as root. Avoid, unless you don't care about the integrity of your data.
