Though perhaps not in the usual way.
Despite today being the first day of a month of unpaid leave as part of transitioning to a new career, I got a text from my boss. When I’d sent him a document earlier in the week I’d sent the old version, before all of my edits.
I’m a six hour drive away from home already, but I brought plenty of gear, so this should be no problem, right? Firing up the laptop I fairly quickly realized that rather than iCloud or OneDrive, the working version of this document had been in my Downloads folder on my Mac Studio, which doesn’t get synced to the cloud anywhere. While I’d left my Mac mini home server on in case I needed remote access to anything, I’d turned the Mac Studio off before I left. I started thinking about how long it would take to recreate the work that I’d done when I remembered Backblaze.
Sure enough, I was able to log in to the website, enter my encryption key, and download a copy of the document from their backup of my Downloads folder. Sent it off, easy peasy.
