I have an account with Amazon S3 service storage. I also have the Transmit app which allow me to sync any local folder with Amazon S3. It works fine but I want this to be done in a scheduled way (let's say every day at 10PM). As far a I see Transmit can not do this.

I try with Automator + Calendar. I works, but in this way you don't get any notification if the sync fails.

Looking for something similar to Chronosync app.


Highly recommend Arc. Automatic backups from the menubar to A3, whatever and whenever you want.

  • I'm trying it. I does the job. Just a question, as far as see Arc encrypts the files. So, if I access my S3 storage account using a FTP app I can't see the files (because they are encrypted) Am I right? Can I make Arq not to encrypt the files, I mean, just to upload the files? Thanks – chefnelone Mar 15 '13 at 8:30
  • Also, is there any way to preview a remote file before I restore it? – chefnelone Mar 15 '13 at 11:05
  • I restore to the desktop so I can check it out before replacing a file. – Zo219 Mar 16 '13 at 0:46
  • I think it would be nice to have a preview by just clicking in the file. Anyway I see that Arq is best app so far to sync with S3 storage service. – chefnelone Mar 16 '13 at 7:57

I believe this is what Jungle Disk does.
