Never lose a file with the world's easiest computer backup.
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.
Every online backup program says they are easy to use. It's almost become a cliché. But at Backblaze we really wanted that to be true from start to finish. An example is the install experience. 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 all their files are kept on their PC. 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. And that's what we built: The best PC backup software in the world.
We hate using software that slows down our PC, 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 and slowly scanning the drive.
The result is that Backblaze uses less than 1% of your PC's 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.
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 felt integrated and responsive with your PC. Therefore, we built the Backblaze core engine using C++ code.
