Online backup service.

Overview

Backblaze is an online backup service designed from the ground-up for the Mac. With unlimited storage available for $6 per month, as well as a free 15-day trial, peace of mind is within reach with Backblaze.

  • Easy and automatic. A simple setup process and automatic continuous backups means having safe data is not only for the extremely savvy.
  • Safe and secure. Encrypted data on your computer is transmitted with a secure, encrypted connection and stored encrypted on the Backblaze servers. Never worry about your data's security.
  • Transparent and accessible. Browse and download your files online or have them overnighted to you on a DVD or USB drive for a flexible file or system restoring process.

Note: $6/month for unlimited storage; 15-day trial.

What's new in Backblaze

Version 7.0.2.470:
Performance - a 50% Boost:
  • We’ve increased the maximum upload threads to 30, creating speed increases up to 50% (depending on your computer and upload bandwidth). More threads allow more uploads to run in parallel thereby dramatically increasing backup speeds.
Efficiency:
  • Logging and system resource usage have been streamlined so Backblaze continues to be nearly invisible on your computer.
Network Management:
  • We’re not big fans of data caps here at Backblaze, and one bit of feedback we’ve received over the last year or so was that people were blowing past their ISP’s monthly bandwidth allotment while backing up using their hotspot or mobile device-tethered internet connection. With that in mind, we’ve added a blocklist feature so you can choose to prevent backups from occurring while you are connected to specific Wi-Fi networks of your choosing. Backblaze will still transmit little bits of data (we call them heartbeats) to let us know your computer is still active, but no backups will be transmitted.

This app has a major failing -- it can't restore files by itself, and most importantly, there's no way to restore files to their original location. Why this isn't a priority for Backblaze is beyond me.

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.

Do not trust Backblaze with your data. Maybe you'll be like me and pay for their services for 6 years, finally need it when my laptop was stolen, and then have my data deleted after 30 days because said laptop was no longer in my possession. And the Data Restore experience is terrible - incredibly slow download times and multiple crashes. This business model is like paying insurance premiums every month and then not actually having coverage when you need it. But hey, at least they gave me a protracted refund on my year subscription after I gave them money for 6 years for absolutely nothing. Thanks guys!

Poor customer service. They lost their encryption key from my key pair, stopping my ability to restore files. They offered no assistance apart from blaming me for losing my key, which I still have on hand. They returned money for the unused part of my service, then told me to get lost and not return. Worthless and rude.

WARNING!. This backup service does not back up applications in the /Applications folder and it does not back up aliases anywhere!. This is inexplicable, especially the alias problem. You have to move your applications to another folder and this can mess up some incorrectly-made applications. Also, the search function on their web site as well as in the iOS app sucks, as does navigating through hierarchical file structures.

Hands down still the best remote backup service around. Only 4 ½ stars, though, because you still can't backup /usr/local. A warning: since one update a few months ago—don't know which—bzserv (and therefore Backblaze) is almost unusable on computers with HDDs; maybe it has quietly been optimized for SSD-based systems, but if you still have an HDD, the system (including online page loading speeds) take a heavy hit, whenever bzserv is working in the background. (Reducing Backblaze upload speed doesn't help, because it's what's happening locally on your boot volume that's the problem.) I've been on an SSD for some time, and all is great, but before the switch one to two months of Backblaze on an HDD was a real pita.

Until ISPs in the USA start providing symetrical upload/download (same speed both directions), online backup for the majority of people is not practical. My ISP provides 200 Mbps down, but only 10Mbps up. Even at 10Mbps, a backup of just my data takes over 24 hours, never mind system images. By the time data is backuped, it's already gone through several local update cycles, in other words, the online is never caught up.

Count me in the group that has had NO problems whatsoever with BackBlaze. I've backed up terabytes of date, and have never had any problems with restores. 100% success so far. And $5/month for unlimited storage is unbeatable. Only downside, and this is inherent of all of these services, is that upload speed can be SLOW. This, however, is a problem with your ISP, and not the software.

AVOID BACKBLAZE – As others have noted, test restores of data have been unreliable. Never assume that your data is safe without restoring data and testing results carefully. Backblaze restores were extremely problematic – and 'customer support' was slow, sketchy and unhelpful. I cancelled auto-renew after a year.
