"As of 3 October 2023, prices for new purchases and renewals will increase to $9 per month, $99 per year, or $189 for 2 years. Existing licenses will be honored for their duration." I advise people to avoid Backblaze in any case. What's the point of backing up if you can't restore? And these dopes tell you to shove off if your restore doesn't work. Aren't they nice. :-P

WARNING: the latest release 8.5.0.634 uses new security libraries that only run on 10.14 or later. Their installer does not check the OS version which is a major flaw. I backreved to 8.5.0.628 which they don't have available on their site. You'll have to contact support if you install this version on a 10.9-10.13 system.

Ok, backing up actually works, but that's it. You better NEVER have to restore anything. After a HD crash I had to restore several TB of data. This is not possible at once, you have to split up the data to actually be possible to download anything. Downloading with a browser is WAY too slow, downloading of one chunk of 300 GB lasts for 2 days, which sucks because of the forced connection restart of internet providers here, so downloading is so slow that it is actually not possible with the browser. Ok, there is "Backblaze downloader" which should be able to reconnect and resume downloading. The problem is, this app does not even start to do anything. Starting to download? Nah, not with this app. So actually you pay for backing up your files but you will not be possible to re-download and restore them if it is more than some GB. Backblaze is a joke. NOT RECOMMENDED!

Incompetent and rude, with no apologies. Look elsewhere.

I was a huge propionate of this service until somewhere in the middle of the night they changed their backup policy to store things for a limited time. Like mentioned in other interviews 30-days as a default. Well 30-days is an insult to the very concept of "backing up" your files. Yet again, another greedy company trying to deceive their customers however they can. Even if you pay the extra money for one-year, which I did, what other choice do I have? The software hobbles your computer 100% when it's running. It also ignores your directives for when and how to backup. Very easy to fix, but even after reporting these issues to the developers, I discovered they are the type of humans who work 12 hours a day to blame it on you instead of eight to fix the problem.
