Backblaze Online Backup Service

Thanks to this Frank Chimero blog article, I signed up for a free 15-day trial of the online backup service about ten days ago.

I’ve been hesitant to back my files up to an online service. I still have my privacy reservations, but I’ve decided to err on the side of pragmatism now. And if I start to get creeped out again, I can re-upload everything encrypted with my own private key.

Some Google searching of comparative backup service reviews, I decided the only good fit for me from what I’d found available was Backblaze.

Today, before my 15-day free trial was up, I decided to order a year of service. With the coupon code BYEMOZY, I got a year of Backblaze service for $45.00 ($3.75/month). That is a compelling price to pay.
