SpiderOakOverview

SpiderOak is a multi-platform secure online backup, storage, access, and sharing solution engineered for the consumer and small businesses. You must first sign up to use SpiderOak.

Running natively on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux, SpiderOak allows users to create a central storage repository where they can access data from all their SpiderOak devices within the application, or via Web login at SpiderOak.com.

Using an automated approach, SpiderOak immediately backs up and stores any additions, edits, or changes to the back up set. Historical versions of any document can be identified and downloaded by timestamp.

Any folders within a user's SpiderOak account can be selected for sharing in a password protected setting called a 'ShareRoom', and any changes or additions to the shared folders are automatically seen by visitors to the ShareRoom.

Capabilities at a glance:

  • True privacy via comprehensive "zero knowledge" encryption. Not even the names of your files or folders are revealed.
  • Multi computer, real time: access all files from other machines
  • Retains complete historical content of every folder and file
  • Easily share folders from any device in ShareRooms w/ RSS feeds
  • Massive data de-duplication: extremely space efficient versioning and storage
  • Optional command line interface: batch mode, scheduled/scripted operation
  • Quality by design: near 100% automated test coverage
  • Properly handles OS X resource forks
  • ACID compliant, fault tolerant structure eliminates worry of corrupted backups

New

  • Modernized look and feel of UI on Linux, Windows, and Mac.
  • New name: SpiderOakONE (We also provide a SpiderOak backup and sync product for Groups and another for Enterprise. This name change was necessary to reduce confusion going forward.)
  • New branding consistent with SpiderOak.com (new logo, icons, etc.)
  • Mac OS X now uses an installer rather than a drag-and-drop install.
  • New feature: Clear Upload Queue. In case you change your mind about uploading that Blu-ray disc image
  • Automatic recovery from time traveling clients. You probably don't need to worry about this if you don't use SpiderOak inside a virtual machine with snapshots that you restore to. Time travel is the situation when, for example, the client moves "back in time" relative to the server. For example if you run SpiderOakONE inside a Virtual Machine and then restore that Virtual Machine to an earlier snapshot, then continue using the earlier snapshot. In this case, the server is now "ahead" of the client. The client has already backed up newer versions of things that it now no longer knows about. The client will detect this situation and wait up to 24-36 hours in case the user soon returns to the later snapshot. If the time travel situation persists, the client will automatically re-sync with the server and continue the backup without interruption. In this scenario, files that were created exclusively in the "future" VM snapshot would be preserved by SpiderOak as deleted items.
  • Updated SpiderOak Hive startup guide.
  • Improvements to space accounting.
  • Upgraded toolchain with updates to Qt, PyQT, Python and OpenSSL.
  • Along with the new name, paths to executables have changed. On Linux systems a symlink is placed in the previous location so cron jobs and such will continue to operate.
  • Similarly, names of some Windows registry keys have changed.
  • Application data has moved depending on OS: Mac uses ~/Library/Application Support/SpiderOak if you've been a user prior to 6.0 and ~/Library/Application Support/SpiderOakONE if you started with 6.0. Linux uses ~/.config/SpiderOakONE, and Windows uses %LOCALAPPDATA%SpiderOakSpiderOakONE.
  • Some under the hood changes paving the way for new features in 6.1.
  • Fix to Windows MSI installer to disallow installing the 32 bit application alongside a 64 bit application.
  • Fixed an issue on Linux that would sometimes prevent multiple users of a local machine from using SpiderOak concurrently.
  • Retired support for Mac OS X Lion (10.7). Current Mac OS X is 10.10, and allegedly only 0.04% of Mac users are currently 3 major OS versions behind.
