@dnanian Correct. Also tried uninstalling and reinstalling.

@irons Support has been helpful in the past, but no response this time. And lots of downtime. I just gave up.

@dnanian I didn't either, until a few weeks ago I starting using a whole core 24/7 rescanning and rescanning and rescanning.

@irons @marcoarment I used CrashPlan happily for years, but then it just stopped working (both backups and restores). Using Arq now.

via Echofon in reply to irons

So far very impressed with @arqbackup. Excluding some large, infrequently folders/files should keep the S3 fees reasonable.

via Echofon

@dnanian Thought it was longer than 15m. Oh well, still better than nothing.

via Echofon in reply to dnanian

@stevenf And Android lets you just delete an app after trying it and then not be billed for it. Trials without extra UI.

via Echofon in reply to stevenf

@nanther Thanks. The good news is that Arq is looking like a good solution for the most important files.

via Echofon in reply to nanther

@nanther Well, this was precipitated by problems with CrashPlan/CrashPlan Central, so I was kind of looking for something different.

@danielpunkass Many great years with Retrospect. Many years of failure. Maybe it's worth another try. Hmm.

via Echofon in reply to danielpunkass

Would be nice to have an app that can make versioned, compressed, verifiable local backups. Like in the 90s.

via Echofon

Giving @arqbackup another try. I've had "java" at >100% CPU for a week now and CrashPlan's still having trouble backup up and restoring.

via Echofon

CrashPlan: "Unable to restore because destination is offline." Wonderful.

via Echofon

Too bad the Finder's Copy window still moves the Replace button around depending on the length of the filename it's asking you about.

GyazMail 1.5.11 works with Mac OS X 10.1 Puma!

@leebennett Seems sensible to me. Previous policy probably had lots of abuse.

@mhenders WriteRoom's keyboard row doesn't work on iPhone; Notely's does. WriteRoom's search doesn't show the matches within the files.

via Echofon in reply to mhenders

It's nice to see so many of the features that I track become standard across nearly every app in just a matter of months.

via Echofon

@mhenders WriteUp doesn't have the nicest UI, but it's the only one with good search. WriteRoom's UI is nice, but I miss a top navbar.

@ddribin Both FireWire 800 and USB. Caused full system lock-ups, although that may have since been fixed in firmware. Also random unmounts.

via Echofon in reply to ddribin

@ddribin I had problems with the Voyager Q, but the Voyager S3 seems to work really well.

via Echofon in reply to ddribin

@grynspan Maybe it's for foreign functions?

via Echofon in reply to grynspan

@pilky There's lots to like in 4.0, but who's to say they won't throw a radical 5.0 alpha at us before it reaches the quality of 3.2?

via Echofon in reply to pilky

@pilky UI (panes, etc.), build system, compiler, debugger, certificate/signing stuff seem reasonably separate to me.

via Echofon in reply to pilky

@pilky Sure, but why can't they work on one thing (UI or capabilities) at a time to maintain the quality? Always feels like a beta/alpha.

via Echofon in reply to pilky

@marcoarment That's what I'm doing (except that with Aperture you don't have to actually make the symlink). Much faster.

via Echofon in reply to marcoarment

@pilky As I see it, the problem is that PB/Xcode is always about what "will be." Soon as it starts getting mature/reliable they scrap it.

via Echofon in reply to pilky

Thank you, MacDirectory, for e-mailing me with the breaking news about Steve Jobs' love child.

A complete rewrite *and* lifetime free upgrades? Good luck. http://t.co/jJ5ICKy http://t.co/F7m4DFh

@jsnell The Fujitsu ScanSnap is great.
