Backblaze VS. Cloud Sync Services

Backup services run automatically in the background, capturing all new and updated data and backing them up to the cloud. Sync services provide a quick way to sync data across multiple devices, and often include a sharing component as well. However, they rely on the user putting files into specific (folders). As such, they are not very effective backup solutions. On our blog you can find a great write-up about the differences between Backup, Sync, and Storage.
