    Looking for replacement for "JungleDisk"

    JungleDisk recently raised price from $1.00 per month to $8.00, so I'm looking for a replacement. I use it with Amazon S3.

    Anyone else here in the same predicament that has found a replacement.

    I would like to continue using Amazon S3 storage.

    I hope this is posted in the correct sub forum.

    It's an automated backup program that backs up files to Amazon S3. I think it also works with RackSpace.

    Almost definitely, it was owned by Rackspace for quite a while until last year.

    Wiki has a Comparison of online backup services which might help.

    This WS thread Mozy vs. IDrive - Can anyone give me some insight deals with the issue, but there's no W3-specific info.

    Some S3 services [haven't used, so can't vouch]:

    DragonDisk free

    S3 Backup $35 once-off

    Duplicity free

    CloudBerry $30 once-off

    Duplicati free

    AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) Amazon's scripting

    Minio free

    Superuser discussion: Is it possible to automatically sync or schedule backup from windows desktop to Amazon cloud drive?

    Thanks for this. Hopefully I'll find something to replace Jungle disk. I've tried some S3 browsers, but apparently Jungle Disk uses its own naming convention for user files to you can't really find your stuff easily.

    Well I've looked at some reviews of other cloud backup systems, such as CrashPlan, Carbonite, Backblaze, Spideroak1. I haven't seen any that come close to JungleDisk in ease of use, especially for restoring files.

    I guess I'll keep looking.

    Decided to Trial CloudBerry. Has almost all the features of JungleDisk except for mapping backup buckets as a local drive, although CloudBerry have another product for that if I decide its required.

    I recently started with Cloudberry and like it. The fact that I choose where to store and can do so via Amazon AWS is a plus for me. So far it does everything I need for the backup of data. I don't use it for backup of system images or really large databases.

    So far Cloudberry is working as advertised. I think I'll get the Cloudberry drive product which maps the backup buckets as a Network drive as well.

    There is a small saving if you get both. BTW there is an annual maintenance fee.

    I've had a couple of issues but their support folk have been very responsive. I've closed my Jungle disk account and deleted all the Jungle Disk backups. That was the only bummer, having to do new backups.
