"Fantastic backup solution"

What do you like best?

I migrated to Arq+Backblaze B2 after Crashplan canceled their consumer service. It’s easy to setup with a variety of cloud services. The ability to configure email notifications gives me piece of mind that my backups are actually happening.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, Arq gets the job done. It didn’t take long to get working. I don’t have any complaints about it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It requires some knowledge of cloud storage options and how to set them up.

Since I've purchased it, Arq offers their own cloud backup solution for only $59.99 / year. Since I purchased the perpetual standalone license, it's still cheaper for me to use it in conjunction with Backblaze B2. However, this may be a solid option for those just wanting turn-key backups.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backing up my personal photo library and projects.

"A secure and awesome backup app"

What do you like best?

In my line of work as an IT consultant I frequently recommend Arq to my clients.What I like about the application is that it is so secure in that it uses advanced encryption standards and that the data only leaves the computer after being encrypted with a password known to the owner. Some other outstanding features are;

1.Backups are stored in your cloud account, NAS or SFTP server protecting your data against theft, ransomware and disaster.

2. Periodic automatic backup.

3. Can be integrated with other cloud storage service providers.

4.Unlimited backup.

5. The app also keeps multiple versions of your files so that if you discover a file is corrupted, go back in time to get an earlier version.

6. Open and transpararent

What do you dislike?

Besides Arq being an awesome application, a linux, Ubuntu and Unix app has not yet been developed disadvantaging users of these platforms.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I strongly recommend Arc to users who would like to securely and remotely backup and store their data in the cloud. The benefits of Arc are immense and people should adopt the app and reap from the immense benefits it ha to offer.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Arq has successfully enabled my clients to securely, store, backup and restore data.

What Backup solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Best backup tool"

What do you like best?

The best thing i like about Arq is that it do not limit you to file sizes, that's why i can store encrypted files on cloud without fear.

second best thing is its Versioning of files it do automatically, So if your new file is not working you can easily get last version of file.

third good thing is it is very inexpensive, so to use it i don't have to think about cost.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that it is Only available for Mac and Windows, Android and linux devices are not supported right now.

It also takes some time to get use to it . Maybe some poor UX issue, but i have not seen any bug yet that is good thing .

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Arq have really good features, but yes it needs some face-lift .Arq do not releases new updates soon , which may be good or bad thing for you . Yes 49$ is good price for these many features .

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using it as my backup tool and mostly use its automatic backup scheduling feature. I see its encryption and versioning as its benefits.

"Complete Backup Solutions"

Arq is a complete backup solution for all your I.T needs. It uses a secure Cloud servers for backups and also utilizes third-party backup services such as a Google Drive Amazon S3 and Dropbox.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much that I dislike although they could offer a free version.

"Arq Backup Review - Windows User"

What do you like best?

Arq provides a spread of versatile and swift backup and recovery management services in an all-in-one package that some other options may not provide. Arq is compatible with your cloud storage accounts like OneDrive and DropBox which is convenient.

What do you dislike?

Arq has features that seem to be out of date, and is not the most appealing to myself. Arq unfortunately falls short when offering storage options and has a lack of image-based backups.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When considering Arq, I would first test to see if the design of the application suits your needs, along with storage and backups for the amount of data you need to backup. Secondly, I would test the software for a bit of time and see if your business has a better data management and storage standards after the use of Arq.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Arq has helped myself and colleagues limit the amount of lost data, and has successfully strengthened our encryption policies, online and local backups and storage capacities.

"Review of Arq"

What do you like best?

Arq Backup does a good job with hourly backups to the cloud inexpensively. I also am glad for their strong encryption processes, which is one less headache I have to worry about.

What do you dislike?

What could be improved is a live sync functionality. It would be nice to experience live syncing of file uploads. There are default settings that I could live without, too. The default settings do not improve the overall quality.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a great cost-effective way of keeping our company's data in a safe and secure location.
