Jungle Disk is an application that lets you store files and backup data securely to Amazon.com's S3 Storage Service. You can store an unlimited amount of data for only 15¢ per gigabyte with no monthly subscription fee, startup fee, or commitment.

Do not install Jungle Disk on your computer. It leaves a lot of junk behind that it impossible to remove. The little icons on your folders are impossible to remove. I've made several attempts to get this issue resolved with tech support but no one has been able to resolve the problem. This is junk. I can't believe Jungle Disk has this poor of customer service and technical support. I repeat. Save yourself a lot of headaches and do not install their junk software.

By default restores every file and every folder ever deleted or renamed. Jungle Disk simply does not have the option to age deletions so they get purged out eventually. Instead either restore way more files than actually got deleted by mistake, or never get the chance to recover from deletions. Strangely they do handle versioning, so it baffles me why they could not implement deletion aging. You should also know that files restored lose their creation date, which is reset to the restore date, so it’s harder to recuperate from the problem. Support was just awful and since I did not loose data, they were very insensitive to the hours lost and major mess caused. Took 3 weeks to diagnose problem and some 30 back and forths. 4 weeks for resolution. Did give $20 software price refund.

I was surfing around and found this site on Jungle Disk. I listened to Leo Laporte's podcast talking about Jungle Disk and gave it a try. So far I love it, especially the peace of mind it provides. I also wrote my thoughts on it at www.macnwinblog.com. See what you think.

@ Don Juan: JungleDisk != Amazon. JungleDisk won't bill anything except for the one time price of their software.
And btw.. You should read the pricing details. Storage and traffic are not bundled. You only pay for what you really use. Say you already have uploaded 100 MB and do not change anything, there is *no* traffic being billed, just the storage fee for the 100 MB (0,02 USD / mo.).
I think this is really fair. I use Amazon S3 for all my personal backup needs. And I use JungleDisk as the most flexible and reliable software client for Amazon S3.
