When launched, Jungle Disk automatically mounts as a volume named "Jungle Disk". To connect to your Jungle Disk manually, use the Finder Go > Connect to server menu. For the address, type: http://localhost:2667/ and then click on Connect.
Working with files
Once you're connected, working with files is very simple. It's basically just like working with files on your machine. The only bottleneck is the speed of your Internet connection.
You can make secure backups when needed or schedule them. In case you have a connection that needs to be used for other things beside backup, Jungle Disk allows you to limit the upload speed of your backups. Furthermore, you can automatically backup your entire hard drive or just certain folders.
Jungle Disk is shareware and has a free trial. If you like the software, a license will cost you $20 but it comes with free upgrades forever, it includes all three platforms (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and you're allowed to install it on as many machines as you want with a single S3 account.
