Hi,

I am trying to get a cloud backup app that works with Mac OS 10.7.5 (Lion). I was using Dropbox and Google Drive, but they have stopped working on my OS. iCloud Drive does not work either -- it requires Yosemite as a minimum. I can't upgrade my OS beyond 10.7.5 because my compute (white 2007 Macbook) does not support any newer version.

I can still use any of the above services via a web browser, but that is very inconvenient, since I have a lot of files to backup that I constantly update.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I am using Arq Backup, which is working very well. However it is a paid software (worth the money IMHO) and I cannot tell about the performance on 10.7.5. Used it with Yosemite without problems before and I am running Sierra now (on a 2012 Mac Mini)

UPGRADE. I have a macbook pro Mid 2012 and it works like a charm with the latest OS (High Sierra). I am sure you can get one on CraigsList or Ebay for less than $500.
