Memex archives are composed of encrypted segments that can safely be synced among a group of machines and shared with mainstream storage providers such as rsync.net or Google drive. This way, personal files are shared, archived, and backed up without being revealed. Memex archives are not tied to a specific storage provider and are easy to relocate, should the need arise (e.g., lower costs or unreliable infrastructure).

The data layer of the memex tool is provided by sdar, a secure deduplicated archive management tool. Sdar is a generic content-addressed database that stores the data encrypted. Values in an sdar archive can be as large as multiple petabytes. Random access in archives and values is possible and efficient. Getting started
