I’m a relatively new user of Backblaze—perhaps over the last 3-4 months. I keep noticing a strange problem. I don’t run BB continuously, instead, I have a reminder to run BB at preset times. Eight out of ten times when I launch BB it says it is backing up but nothing is happening. It just sits there. Closing and restarting the app does not resolve the problem. I usually have to reboot the MBP to get BB to function correctly.
I’m running a new M1 MBP with the latest version of Big Sur.
I’m seriously considering cancelling my subscription and just relying on my two external drive backups. As stated above, I have a reminder several times a week to backup to those drives. I have an external disk at two different locations. In addition, nearly all of my files are in the cloud. While cloud storage and syncing is not a backup, I feel comfortable with two external backups plus the iCloud storage.
Has anyone else experience this with BB?
