The following charts compare each of the leading online backup services based on eight essential features.
Backblaze is the leader in online backup with a reputation of being reliable and easy to use. We specialize in making sure all user data is backed up by default so you don't need to worry about making sure you remembered to drag a file from your desktop into a designated folder. If you need all your data back, we are the only service that offers you Rapid Restore options.
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.
