Simple, fast and unobtrusive. There's a good iOS app too. I replaced Crashplan, deleted Java and since bought a 5 seat license for my team. Very good and highly recommended. Also use Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner for local backups which more...

Um: v2.5.1.750 is from May 22, 2014. Therefore, if you keep BackBlaze up-to-date, you won't find this 'update' is 'new' on July 10, 2014. Do not be alarmed.

Backblaze as a service is quite cool, just the app seems outdated, doesnt auto-update (which drives me crazy) …

The automatic throttle doesn’t always play nice, especially on my slow DSL connection. So I manually hit the Pause button. Otherwise, no issues. After 6 months, my 2.5 TB initial backup is almost complete!

I don't find this service very robust.

First of all, this software does not implement the locale settings of my OSX. It shows the amount of remaining data in a way I'm not used to read, by using a comma instead of a dot. This way I don't have the right feeling about the status of a backup.
I have told the customer service about this problem half a year ago, but they have not solved it yet: very sloppy! Same goes for the settings on the website.

Also, I keep receiving emails that an external drive hasn't been connected in quite some time. That is not true. I've booted with the drive connected and left it running for a complete day. The application was clearly uploading some stuff, but somehow it thinks it had nothing to do with my external drive. As I'm a laptop user this is highly inconvenient. I'm supposed to somehow hope it backups all my data, because there is no way to clearly see what the status is: the "to do log" in the software is bullocks.

I love BackBlaze and recommend it to everyone! It Just Works!

However, to earn the 5 stars BackBlaze need to add support for NAS

I ran into a bizarro bug whereby attempting to install this update resulted in error boxes reading:

"Installation could not complete. Please contact Backblaze support."

So I did contact Backblaze support! And UNLIKE so many typical modern crap companies (Hi Time Warner Cable!), they had EXACTLY the solution. It worked. Great company.

Migrated from iDrive to Backblaze and haven't looked back. The only thing I fault with this app is that when it starts to backup my drives, it slows my whole system down to a crawl, and many times I have to postpone the backup due to working. I have it on Automatic Throttle, which *should* recognize that I'm using the Mac and adjust accordingly, but that's not the case. Other than that, $4.99/month for unlimited backup is very nice.

Does this allow our own storage clouds to be used? For example, I would like to use DreamObjects instead.

Why would you want to do that? This is an unlimited backup service... you already get unlimited storage from them. No it does not allow own storage clouds to be used.

Currently the Download link yields an .exe Windows file. No thanks!
Looks like someone has screwed up and linked to the wrong thing.

The link should adjust automatically based on the platform you're downloading it from. If you're on Windows, it will grab the Windows version. Or perhaps you're using a tool to block your browser's identity and that's confusing things?
