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?

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 should be done with any online backup.

WARNING: Try uninstalling on imac running osx 10.8.3 and left with self replicating trojan like file called bzbmenu that keeps self replicating after every uninstall and deletion attempt I've made in last 7 days. deleted plist file and it keeps coming back. Process can't be terminated and it attempts to access internet every hour when online!
Tech Help from company is good but after three emails they haven't been able to help me get rid of this malware. Don't download this program if you plan to uninstall it!

Update: Backblaze happens to have the some of the best customer service tech help I've ever received and they did help me uninstall and rid my mac of the bzbmenu problem after all. I wish I could delete my earlier post and give Backblaze 4 stars because they deserve it.

With all the positive reviews I was looking forward to giving Backblaze a try, unfortunately I cannot afford to prepay at this time and as a rule I do not give any commercial entities authorization to make withdrawals from my account. I've heard too many horror stories of people having to close their account just to stop auto-withdrawals so it's going to have to wait.

It keeps out of my way and backs me up. It's simple, and the cost can't be beat.

It would be nice if the app had some more features, like browsing online files, viewing status and progress, but then again the bare-bones-ness of it is nice. CrashPlan was much more sluggish, by comparison.

Backblaze works great. Been using it for about a year for two Macs in our house. I love it. No errors, no churn, no hassle.

Way to go guys... I got a new Mac a few months ago and transfered my backup easily so I didn't have to re-upload everything.

Use Backblaze along with a local backup using Carbon Copy Cloner for the perfect disaster proof solution!

I wanted to give BackBlaze five stars across the board - ease of use, great value! problem is, at least for those of us with LOTS of data to back up, BackBlaze's team acknowledged a tech bug that made it impossible for me to continue to use it - after a certain amount of files are uploaded, the database file controlling BackBlaze simply hits its maximum - and no more backups can take place. I have almost 3TB of data (including lots of graphics files, html files and mp3 files) and I was unable to complete backing up these drives in several tries. BackBlaze has acknowledged the problem, said they were working on it, and sadly I haven't heard back that they've solved it.

Olivier_herrbach had trouble on 05 Apr 2011
Hello to all,

I'm just wondering, because I've downloaded an .exe file …

I wrote somewhere that Mac OS X could open
Windows Self Extracting Archives,
BUT :
I don't want to use CrossOver, Parallels or VMWare Fusion,
and I'll reinstall soon Windows 7 Enterprise in BOOTCAMP.

Can somebody help me to understand why it's on MacUpdate,
or what mistake I've done ?

Thank you very much in advance !

Best regards

No quarrels with the service, but I am noticing that the "bztransmit" program in the latest version (1.0.1.190) is suddenly consuming hundreds of megs of memory more than the previous release (build 162?). Right now it's at 350MB and climbing. Using Snow Leopard on an iMac5,1.

I found a copy of the old build 162 and reinstalled that. Maximum memory usage: 110MB after running for eight hours. Build 190 went as high as 520MB at one point after running the same amount of time.

In theory it looks great, and you cant beat the price. However I have noticed a troubling quirk... my Macbook Pro (circa 2008) hangs every few minutes when this app is backing up! Whats more disturbing is the fact that, after changing the backup to run only when I manually initiate them, I still had hangs throughout the day. Upon further investigation I discovered that the service was initiating backups on its own even set to "manual" backup only!!!
