Happy customers!

I recently used @arqbackup to recover a photo of Sara and our oldest dog, Raghleigh, who died back in January. I backup to Google Cloud and Amazon, and just received my monthly bill for $2.28. Arq is one of my must have apps that I hardly have to think about. Highly recommend.

Thanks to @arqbackup for their help getting my backups working again after a Windows update messed up multiple installed applications, even though the root problem wasn't to do with Arq.
