We hate using software that slows down our
computer, 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 start-up 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.
