Thanks to Backblaze for sponsoring this week. I’ve been a user of both the Backblaze cloud backup and their B2 storage service for years, and it’s the best solution I’ve found for complementing my local Time Machine and drive clone backups. I’ve even been through the restore process, which is the true test of a backup service, and they passed with flying colors. Great to have them this week!

Don’t lose your work. Back up all your data with Backblaze Cloud Backup. It’s unlimited, unthrottled, uncomplicated, and at $6/month per computer, it’s a no-brainer.

What Backblaze Does

Backblaze natively backs up your music, movies, photos, and whatever you’re working on or editing for just $6/month. Backblaze continuously and securely backs up all the data on your computer and external hard drives. We keep things simple.

The Must Haves

The backup is automatic, so you don’t have to worry about remembering where your files are or picking and choosing which locations to back up. Backblaze does the work for you. Don’t want to back up a certain folder? Simply exclude it from your backup. Easy.

Accessing files is easy. Get your files back via any web browser. Log in to your account, preview the files you want to download, and download them one at a time, or group them together to download a ZIP. Mobile access is easy with iOS and Android apps that let you browse your files and download them directly to your phone.

The Nice to Haves

Have a lot of data? Backblaze can FedEx you a flash key or USB hard drive with all your data on it. Don’t need the drive that they ship to you? Return it to Backblaze within 30 days for a refund.

Want to archive some of your files off to B2 Cloud Storage? Backblaze recently launched a Save Files to B2 feature which allows you to copy your files your backup into B2 Cloud Storage ($0.005/GB). It’s a great way to save off chunks of data or create snapshots of your entire backup.
