For years, I used an external hard drive and Time Machine to back up my MacBook Air. I knew that it wasn’t a very good solution. I only did it about once a week, meaning that I would lose up to a week of work if something happened – unless that something would cause me to lose both my laptop and my external hard drive. A burglary, for instance.

Backblaze solved that for me. For only 3 USD each month, Backblaze uploads my hard drive to a server with THE MAGIC OF THE CLOUD. No matter what happens to my computer, I’ll have every single file (excluding the ones I feel uncomfortable uploading) a download away. Backblaze has saved my bacon more than once this year.
