Pros
It's easy to use, automatically backs up and gives you the most important data about it. I even like that they email you if your computer hasn't connected to their cloud in a while.

Backblaze has been a lifesaver. I downloaded the software and it backs up my documents.

Backup solution is robust and simple. I really like that because a control panel and configure should be as simple as possible.

Cons
The benefit of knowing that my data is securely stored if my computer and my first line of backups fail. Lets face it, external hard drives can fail as easily as an internal hard drive.

That's more limited by the bandwidth you pay for.

Easy hassle free unlimited backup system

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall I'm very happy to have Backblaze keeping my files safe.

Pros

What I like most about this software is that the backup is unlimited, as a photographer I have a lot of files that are fairly large that I need to backup. Being able to access my files easily is super helpful and has already come in handy during a hardware malfunction a few months ago.

Cons

The only downside is that you pay per computer so if I have a portable drive I have to plug it into the same computer anytime I want to back it up so I can't just log in to my Backblaze account from a shared computer to backup my portable drive.

Backblaze Back Up for Nonprofit

Reviewed 3 years ago

The biggest problem Backblaze solved was that when we had previously used another company for backing up files (which was a more cloud based system) we lost files when a staff member deleted files thinking our main account was linked to them. When in fact the files were lost because they were the original author. This was a huge loss of time having to rewrite manuals and operating documents. ...

Pros

First of all you just can't beat their price for this type of automatic back up system. Most platforms I had researched either had size limits or cost much more. For a small non-profit we were so happy (and able to sleep better at night) knowing if our computer crashed we would be safe and able to keep going.

Cons

We have had a slight issue w/ backing up our harddrive because we travel to different venues and use that same harddrive for our video footage. We just have to set really good reminders so we don't forget to plug it back in.

Rock Solid Cloud Backup

Reviewed 9 days ago

I spend approximately 1 hour a year managing backups for my organization. Most of that is making sure that I have enough licenses to cover my users and renewing our subscriptions. Backblaze takes care of the rest with hardly any effort on my part.

Pros

I like that I don't have to think about Backblaze; I set it up, it backups my data on the terms I set, and I can move on to other tasks. It just works, and gives me the confidence I need to dive head-first into the work that really matters.

Cons

The UI of the Mac client is a little clunky and integrates with System Preferences in a way that isn't totally intuitive to me, but because I have to change settings so infrequently, it doesn't really matter to me.
