Use Amazon S3 to automatically back up your Mac
Authored by: nekomatic on Feb 12, '08 02:15:18AM

Last time I checked, the Mozy Mac client didn't back up the resource forks of files - to me that makes it worse than useless. I'm trying out Jungledisk at the moment but haven't yet got round to checking it with Backup Bouncer to see what metadata it does or doesn't store. One comment is that I've just had my first bill from Amazon and the biggest charge was not for the storage or transfer but for the list/put requests - it's still very cheap though.

Anyone have any comments on the read/write access criticism? Seems to me this is just the same as backing up to a normal disk. If you only mount Jungledisk while running the backup, and quit other apps first, this shouldn't be a problem should it?

Actually, as of version 0.9, we support
resource forks, symbolic links and bundles correctly.
