No RAW updates????? Why is Adobe so far ahead of the curve here? I will be forced to switch to Lightroom. My Sony camera has been out for 2 months now and I can't edit my photos.

I switched from Mozy and overall like Backblaze. However, despite it being an application that according to developers cannot crash my Mac, it somehow is causing freezes on a regular basis that require forced rebooting via the power button. This happens fairly regularly when I click on the backblaze pref pane or on the icon in the menu bar. None of my other pref frames or menu bar items do this. Today I force rebooted and the menu bar item for backblaze didn't even show up (which may be a good thing as for now it is working. I have as directed made sure there are no firewalls etc.. interfering, I have even turned off Default Folder. The problem keeps recurring. I'd like to delete every trace of BB and reinstall but that gives a warning that all data previously uploaded will be deleted.

Value is great, specifically compared to Mozy, which I will drop as soon as I am sure BB will work for me. Features are OK, simplicity is great but I'd like more control over what is backed up and the exclusion process sued is a bit cumbersome. Ease of use is great if into simplicity but average if you want more control over backup. I'd also like some indication of upload rate.

So great promise but somehow with my current system (10.6.7 and latest BB) Backblaze is introducing considerable stability issues.

I unchecked the "show backblaze icon in the menu bar. This is why the icon now longer shows up and this seems to have fixed my crashing problems with backblaze.
