About Archiviste

Archiviste exists because I wanted to create an online backup of the family photos, videos and music files that were stored on external drives, NAS & CD/DVD. I didn't need those files to be constantly kept in sync on my various devices and I did not want to go through the process of copying everything to my computer's Dropbox folder. The only way to do it would have been to use Dropbox web interface but I found it ill-suited to manage the upload of hundreds of files. So in the end, I created Archiviste, a small upload manager built upon the Dropbox API. I hope you'll like it !

License : Archiviste is honorware. You're allowed to use this software for free until you're able to decide if it fits your needs. If it does and you want to keep using it, you are required to pay for a license. If you have a low or no income (ex : full-time student, etc), you can keep using the software without a license until you're able to pay for it. The honor-based virtual license is only $5 USD.

Download Archiviste 1.0.7 for Windows
Note : When downloading using the Chrome browser, some users get a "setup.exe is not commonly downloaded and could be dangerous" warning (this is because it is a ClickOnce installer). To proceed with the download, you have to click on the pulldown menu button on the right-side of the warning and select "Keep".
