I used Backblaze for several years before closing out my account in 2012. Initial backup took a long time. There was no easy way to prioritize, for example, my photos over system files. I ended up manually prioritizing by disallowing pretty much my entire filesystem, and gradually allowing folders to sync. I felt like Backblaze was going out of their way to make it hard for me in order to sell me that hard drive of my data. I felt angry about that and stubbornly downloaded my data one miserable zipfile at a time until I had everything. Once I was reasonably sure I had everything I cared about, I closed my account and haven't looked back.

I've been using it for a few years, and absolutely love it. And yes, I've had to use it for restores. Worked great!

I've used Backblaze for three years. The only problem with the system is their speed: they throttle large uploads, even though they say they don't. The desktop client is a fairly simple interface. Backblaze assumes you want to back up all of your data. Most backup services ask you what you want to back up, but Backblaze asks you if there's anything you want to exclude. Backblaze might be slightly easier for people who don't want to have to think about or plan what they're protecting.

I have peace of mind that my important files are backed up in the cloud.
