@arqbackup Right. Since the file keeps changing it goes around and around. Backup never completes and also blocks other backups.

@dnanian Interesting! FYI, the hard-linked file is /Applications/Xcode-beta.app/Contents/Applications/Accessibility Inspector.app/Contents/Frame…

@dnanian Interesting. I wonder why this was never an issue for me in the interim.

@ozaed Oddly, I got the iTunes update first thing this morning. Updates since then have worked from 10.11 but not 10.12.

Full CPU use for minutes to unarchive a fresh copy of Xcode since problem doesn’t seem to be on destination volume (reformatted it).

Main system: can’t update to 10.11.6 because clone keeps failing to copy a hard link in Xcode-beta.app.

Sierra system: stuck with Mac App Store at 0 bytes downloaded of Developer Beta 3.

@arqbackup I have e-mailed about that. Basically, the backup never completes. It keeps going back and uploading new changed pieces.

@dafacto Yes, that was necessary for it to work with the number of files that I have.

@Gryzor @arqbackup Presumably the CPU use is about the same for each Arq cloud provider?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to Gryzor

@steipete @arqbackup Yeah, I should investigate Nearline as well.

Is anyone using Amazon Cloud Drive with @arqbackup? Seems cheaper and faster than Glacier, but maybe a catch? arqbackup.com/features/

via Tweetbot for Mac

@arqbackup Most are fixed as of 5.1.8. Still problems with validation/enforcement and large files that change during upload.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to arqbackup

@steipete @arqbackup I use Arq as well. Second choice for restores due to Glacier delay. Great overall, but tons of issues with 5.x.

@bump Never liked CrashPlan’s client, just the service. Backblaze has (had?) issues with large numbers of files, external drives, xattrs.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bump

Restoring from CrashPlan. Mac client has been stuck loading the file list for an hour. Took about 30 seconds to get file from Web interface.
