Why Online Backup?
It's not a question of will you lose your data—it's when. Whether it's a
catastrophic event, such as an earthquake, fire, flood, or a mad panda
that destroys your computer, or the more common virus, hard-drive crash,
laptop left in a taxi, or coffee spill, your PC will eventually lose
your photos, music, and documents.
Can't I Recover Data From a Dead Hard Drive?
Sometimes, but it will be very expensive. Data recovery companies will
charge up to $3,000 to attempt to recover your data with no guarantee
that you'll glean anything from it. For the price of one attempted
$3,000 recovery, Backblaze can backup your computer for 50 years at $5
OK, But I Bought an External USB Hard Drive. Am I Safe?
It's a good start, but as our vice president of design says, "better
safe than sorta safe." Do you back up your data every day? Or do you
sometimes forget? Are you sure you're backing up the right files? Are
your computer and USB drive stored in the same place, making both
susceptible to the same risks? What if you go on a trip and leave the
drive at home? You can't backup or restore files while you're gone. And
if you take it with you? Then you're more likely to lose both your
laptop and USB drive at the same time!
So, How Am I Backed Up with Backblaze?
You download a tiny application that installs in three clicks and
doesn't require a credit card or any information to start using it. The
application automatically finds all your photos, music, documents, and
other irreplaceable data files—no matter where they are on your hard
drive. Then when you’re not using your computer, the application makes a
copy of the files, compresses and securely encrypts them and sends them
over the Internet to the remote Backblaze datacenters.
