Tomorrow is World Backup Day!
Don’t be an April Fool!
(I would never call you that, but it helps remember the date.)
Edit: The website seems to have crashed (probably due to volume), hopefully they have a backup.
This should get you started with the 3-2-1 backup strategy that comes up frequently on MPU.
I’m trying Backblaze for 15 day free trial. So, let’s see how that goes.
My backup strategy just saved my ass. My 2011 MBP just died, likely the GPU went bad. I had a day old CCC backup I cloned to my wife’s old iMac and was backup and running. Time was of the essence as I still need to get my taxes done.
So, it turns out that my so-called Backblaze backup is just under 2GB (I didn’t back up any of those iTunes movies or music, because I can stream them these days, or even games) and so they are just my photos (which is already in iCloud) and tons of word documents from work. I don’t think it’s worth paying $6/month for just 2GB of backup and I think it makes more sense for me to put these into iCloud, which I am already paying for the 200GB option. How can I delete what I have in Backblaze or should I let the trial expire and it will be auto-delete?
