Re: Backblaze?

You really should be looking at their documentation—all of this is explained there, and this really isn’t the kind of thing the JAWS list is meant for.

You do have to tell it which drives to back up. But I think it backs up your c: drive automatically.

Hi,

 

Do I have to connect a drive to my computer in order to use backblaze?

Or will it just backup to backblaze itself without a hard-drive?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

You can download a zip file of any size for free. It’ll just take longer if it’s a large one, which is why they recommend the hard drive. It’ll let you download a 4 TB zip file, but I wouldn’t want to be the one downloading it.

Hi,

How big are the zip files you can download for free?

 

I’m thinking of trying it.

 

Thanks,

They don't have a phone number. They do have about 45000000000000 pages of

documentation online, including prices for drive shipments. As I don't have

exact figures handy just at the moment, you might start at their website.

Hi,

I didn't know that you were allowed to keep the drive.

What would you do with it, since it has your data on it?

How much does it cost to receive a drive?

 

Thanks,

Jessica
