I love hearing stories about how our online backup service helped someone recover their data. This letter that our support team forwarded to me was an interesting example of a time Backblaze came in handy:
My two year old son likes to listen to the same track from a certain CD every night before bed. It helps him to relax and always ensures he has a good night’s sleep (and therefore we do too). We recently went away on vacation and stupidly forgot to take the CD with us.
After attempting to sing it on the first night he was decidedly unimpressed, then I remembered that Backblaze had probably backed up the mp3 file. From my phone I logged into the Backblaze site, found that the file was indeed there and quickly downloaded it. The quality wasn’t that great when played through my phone’s speaker, but it made a very happy toddler and probably saved us from many miserable nights on holiday. Thanks Backblaze!
Glad to have been of help and thanks for sharing Ste!
