2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade arq -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade arq -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)

Product Features

Everything you wanted in a backup app

True privacy and control

Arq encrypts your file data before it leaves your computer, so your files are never sent on the network in the clear.
You choose the encryption password. We have no access to your files. All transmission over the network is through SSL/TLS.

Totally transparent

Your backups are stored in an open, documented format. We've published an open-source command-line utility so you can see
for yourself your backups and directly restore your files from cloud storage. Other users have also contributed
Arq-compatible utilities like arqinator.

Awesome Support

We're obsessive about getting solutions to customers' problems, so we strive to fix issues in Arq quickly. We often
deliver patches within days or even hours of first report of a software problem.

Native apps

Both Arq for Mac and Arq for Windows are native apps built for maximum device fidelity and maximum performance.
No Java means no Java-related upgrade headaches or performance problems.


Arq does all it can to minimize uploads: Compression reduces upload sizes. Client-side de-duplication ensures Arq
never uploads the same content twice. Rsync-style "rolling checksum" ensures only the changed parts of files are uploaded.

Cloud Choice

You can back up to your own Amazon Cloud Drive, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Storage, Google Drive, Dropbox,
or OneDrive accounts, or your SFTP server or NAS. Use that extra space in your existing cloud account to store your
encrypted backups.

Unlimited in every way

  • Arq backs up everything or just the files you choose.
  • Arq doesn't skip videos or ignore certain file types
  • Arq backs up files of any size -- 4GB, 40GB, it doesn't matter
  • Arq backs up your external drives
  • Arq backs up your network drives
  • Arq doesn't delete backups of your external drives just because you haven't plugged them in lately
  • Arq doesn't forcibly delete old backup records (unless you tell it to).
  • Arq restores your files onto any computer.

System Requirements - Windows: Windows 7 or later, with .NET 4.5.1 or later

30-day free trial. $49.99 to purchase v5 or $79.98 for lifetime upgrades.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
