I’m trying to love Arq Backup, but it’s fighting me all the way. CrashPlan is pretty bad so I’d really like it if Arq was the solution for my backup needs. It’s trying hard not to be. For a version 5.7 program, it’s still pretty rough.
Sorry for the clickbait headline, but this is important. As of this writing, I’m watching in horrified fascination as Arq Backup validates an 8.8 TB backup set on Amazon Cloud Drive. It started on March 6th at 02:00 and is not close to being finished. Arq has been validating for over 4 days(!) and probably won’t finish until the 7th day, when it will rest. 😏
