  • What is this red exclamation mark in my Mac preferences view?
    I've been seeing this red exclamation mark in my Backblaze preferences view on my Mac. When I click it, it only takes me to my account view on Obviously, it's intended to indicate that something isn't right, but I get no information. I recently deleted my existing backup and am starting fresh with my personal machine and two external drives. I'm running (20230127194041) on Ventura 13.1.1 (a). Source: 11 months ago
  • Unable to login
    What seems to be happening here is that the OP's ISP is blocking (where the API servers and all the files are), but allowing (where the login page is). Source: 11 months ago
  • Best Cloud Storage for 4 TB data (EU - IT) MAC
    For more than that or for more fractioned billing, I'd suggest using Backblaze (neat price comparison They charge for data retrievals like 2 cents per GB. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Collaborative image-storage solution
    I was going to mention Backblaze or Wasabi first. Yet I can see that this is the question about both data organization and storage. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Cheap SSDs from Aliexpress for long term storage of photos and videos?
    For redundancy, why don't you look at one more copy of your data or what you believe to be important in cloud? Wasabi or Backblaze look like perfect candidates to me. You could sync data to cloud and backup NAS with rclone. Yes, it looks like a deviation of 3-2-1 backup rule. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Downloading and storing 80TB
    80 TB for 1K is near to impossible. You can try it with cloud like Backblaze or Wasabi . Yet, in the long run you will end up paying more than 1K. I'd suggest you just look for a DIY NAS. Check these builds:. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Just got my first LTO library!
    We were about to use tapes as a part of 3-2-1 backup rule ( to back up off-site.

  • Best Backup for your Nextcloud - suggestions please
    Maybe Backblaze. They do have an EU region (I missed that on signup, Note to self: remember to transfer...). For the us (not sure uf eu costs the same) it's 5$/TB/Month and you only pay what you use (I currently pay less than one cent per day (-70GB) and you can set limits on how much you want to spend per day. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Backblaze Personal Backup Pegs SSD at 100%
    I also logged in on and the file is explicitly not in the backup. If I click "Backup Now" (even thought it is set to "Continuously" it says "All files are backed up." Will this file every be backed up, will I get a message that it won't be backed up, and/or is there a way to get it to be backed up? Source: over 1 year ago
  • File Grouping and Selection
    We built a "free" backup system out of an old server and leftovers of our infrastructure update (5 HDDs). Veeam Backup and Replication Community Edition ( + StarWind VTL Free ( to extend backups to Backblaze ( + Backblaze (actually, that's the only thing we've been paying... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Using AWS Storage Gateway appliance for backups/archiving with vSANs?
    We were facing the same challenge so we decided to go with StarWind VTL ( + Veeam Community Edition ( + Backblaze ( Source: over 1 year ago
  • Is there a cloudstorage that allows me to rollback an entire folder?
    I'd really consider Wasabi ( neat price comparison or Backblaze ( if you plan moving beyond 1 TB of storage. You could even sync between cloud storage providers and local storage (check this out Source: over 1 year ago
  • Best casual cloud storage per TB? it's like 6 or 7 bucks a month for unlimited storage. Can't revert back to earlier versions though. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Self-build NAS array solution for different size drives + cache
    Speaking of backups, I was also thinking cloud backups. We use Backblaze ( for our production as it is one of the cheapest offerings out there ( ) together with Wasabi ( Source: over 1 year ago
  • website error 500
    Was just trying to look up something on the static sites at and it just wasn't loading or taking forever. Now I'm getting 500 Internal Server Error from nginx and sometimes Cloudflare's connection timed out error. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Recommendations for S3 compatible cold storage provider with ultra low price tag?
    Another + for Backblaze B2 ( Here's a neat price comparison ( They do charge for data retrievals (not much but still). We use it as the off-site repository for ~10 TB of backups. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Looking for temporary cloud storage
    We are using Backblaze ( as the off-site repository (~8 TB). No complaints. Source: over 1 year ago
  • a guide of chomk from "smol" to "o lawd he coming"
    Yes, building NAS at another location makes you closer to 3-2-1 backup rule ( We use Backblaze ( for that very purpose. Source: over 1 year ago
  • What is the best cloud storage to use for files/documents/etc? And which is best for photos/videos etc (if not the same for both)?
    If you go TB+ scale, consider something like Wasabi ( or Backblaze ( See price comparisons:. Source: over 1 year ago

External sources with reviews and comparisons of Backblaze

Wasabi, Storj, Backblaze et al, are promising 80%+ savings compared to Amazon S3... What's the catch?
When you use a Big 3 provider, like Azure Blob Storage or Amazon S3, you’re often paying for reliable storage that a vast swath of enterprises with low-risk tolerance can bet the farm on. Azure has a wide range of options for replication (which has a considerable impact on the reliability of your storage), including LRS (Low Redundancy Storage) if you want to save some cost. Amazon S3, by default, replicates that...
Raising Prices is Hard
Every time a person leaves Backblaze we send one final email thanking them for their time with us, wishing them well, and asking if they have any feedback. Those emails go directly into our ticketing system where I read all of them every month to get a picture of why people are leaving Backblaze. Sometimes they are reasons we cannot address, but if we can, they go on our roadmap. After the price increase we’ve...

Thus if you have some sensitive files, you can choose not to upload them to the cloud. Once you set up the service, everything happens automatically without you having to do anything.
