My Friday Favourite this week is BackBlaze – Unlimited Online Backup.
What is it?
BackBlaze is an online backup service that offers low-cost, unlimited online backup.
How can it help me?
Many of us now store our data in cloud services, such as pCloud – All your files with you, anywhere you go.
But many more of us, myself included, have huge amounts of data that they need to store locally on their laptop, desktop or server computer.
Keeping your data safe is very important. I’ve written on how to protect the data on your laptop or mobile device.
BackBlaze has become my preferred service for unlimited online backup. It replaced CrashPlan, which had become clunky and too expensive.
It offers unlimited online backup of your Mac or PC for a monthly flat-fee.
The installation routine is very simple, and you don’t have to select the files you want to backup — BackBlaze backups everything up on your PC or Mac and stores it in the Cloud.
Restoring your backed up data is very simple too. You can download individual files or folders from a web interface.
You can even use BackBlaze to locate your computer if it is lost or stolen.
Plus, if you need to restore all of your data, you can ask BackBlaze to send you a hard drive pr USB flash drive with your data on it.
For Managed Service Providers (MSPs), BackBlaze also offers a business version.
How much does it cost?
BackBlaze personal plans start at $6 per month.
