Arq 4.1.7 ($40) - Arq is a backup utility that will make incremental backups to an online storage account.

An issue that caused Arq Agent’s helper program to crash when a backup error occurred and no information was available has been fixed with this update. Developers have also removed an unreliable “multi-threading processing” option. [Download - 15.5MB]
