Backblaze constantly scans for new or changed files and automatically backs them up. No need to pick files or folders: We back up everything automatically.
Some of the Backblaze team members worked at Apple building great products, so we know how to make great software for the Mac. Making high-quality products is in our DNA.
Every online backup program says they are easy to use. It's almost become a cliche. But at Backblaze we really wanted that to be true from start to finish. An example is the install experience. By taking a similar approach as Time Machine and backing up all user data, Backblaze doesn't have to ask the user to pick a bunch of file types and go looking for folders they want to back up.
Most users don't know where iMovie keeps their projects or where their email is stored. Also, we didn't want users to have to remember to go back and edit their backup list every time they create a new folder. Sure, some extra stuff is going to get backed up, but the ease of use and peace of mind is worth it. We wanted a user to download and install Backblaze and be backing up data in less than a minute. Mac backup truly has never been easier or better.
We hate using software that slows down our computers, so we wanted to be sensitive to the performance hit on the computer. We did a bunch of amazing magic to optimize the software, including reading data once, slowly scanning the drive, and waiting a few minutes before backing up at startup time.
The result is that Backblaze uses less than 1% of your CPU and memory on average. Backblaze doesn't install any drivers and opens any files it backs up as read-only so your computer is kept stable. Backblaze also works great running side-by-side with Apple Time Machine for added security.
We didn't take a shortcut and create a Java app that can run on many platforms. Instead, we wanted to create a product that integrated well with Macs. Our macOS app has been completely redesigned from the ground up using SwiftUI, while keeping the same system efficiency.
