Photographer’s Portfolio Saved by Backblaze

Thousands of photographers use Backblaze to protect their digital photos, in part due to the recommendation of some great photo sites such as Photojojo, Stuck in Customs,
Digital Composting, TWIP, NSLog(); and many others.

This week one of our customers sent us a note to show some of the 400GB of photos recovered from Backblaze and a reminder that it doesn’t have to be a catastrophic event to cause data loss:

I can’t thank you enough for the quick responses yesterday and the work your team has done to help me and my wife out with restoring this hard drive.

I have to say that the story behind the E drive isn’t anything to write home about, but it wasn’t until we needed something on this drive that we realized it was no longer being recognized by our computer.

This is when the panic set in, as my wife is a well known photographer out here in the Philadelphia area and a good bit of her portfolio work is on this E drive.

To say the least, she is so thankful to know that her work wasn’t deleted.
