Black Friday Deal 7 of 12: Backblaze

Backblaze will back-up ALL of your data to make sure you’re safe

The deal will be available from 12P.M. - 2P.M. CST

Black Friday Deal #7: View the rest of the Black Friday schedule here

Backblaze has been one of our most successful products ever on AppSumo, and we only had it up for two days!

I wrote about my love for Backblaze and why I was so excited to share it with y'all here.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I've been able to get Backblaze BACK on AppSumo for the next two hours.

Okay, so what exactly is Backblaze?

Backblaze backs up all of your data (yes, we're talking unlimited), all the time. No worrying about plugging in your hard-drive and syncing your data. No moving files to a specific Dropbox folder while worrying about space. You simply download and it takes care of everything for you. It just works.

I had to make this Black Friday as amazing as possible for y'all, which is why I knew I had to bring back Backblaze for you.

We won't have this back for a long time, so get it before it's gone for good (I'm serious).

Here's what one sumo-ling had to say after buying Backblaze from us a couple weeks ago:

Backblaze = Awesome

A simple no work way to back up my computer? Yes please!

If you are like me and have spent your time "backing up" your important files to Dropbox then this deal is a DEAL. Save time and let Backblaze take care of backing up everything for you.

This deal is currently sold out, probably because everyone else who got here first bought it. That's okay because this program is worth the full price so send the SUMO crew a nasty email telling them you really, really, want this offer again or just head over to their site and pay full price. It is worth way more than $50 so either way you are getting a steal!

Well good news, our old deal is back for a year of Backblaze for $25, but only for the next two hours, and then it's gone.

I've been using Backblaze happily ever since we last promoted it and I LOVE it. Join me and get it now!

Very important: This is for new customers or existing trial customers only. If you're already paying for Backblaze, this offer isn't for you, unfortunately.

If you're looking for simplicity, Backblaze is the way to go. Just download and it takes care of everything. I love it :-)

Thanks boys for bringing this back, I totally regretted missing it the first time around - so busy hustling.

Do I need more than 1 subscription if I want to back up all my computers, or can I fit it under 1?

Keep hustling Bakus!

It's 1 subscription per computer, so if you'd like to back up 2 computers, you'll need to buy two.

I would have loved to have this deal but im an exsisting customer :( DAMMIT :D

I wish I could buy it as well... I JUST started a monthly subscription last week. :(

Just bought 3 of the BackBlaze 1 year subscriptions, whoops, meant to only buy 1. Thought it was for 3 years, not 3 different computers :(
How do I get the other two refunded?

I thought so too, until I read the email. It will say 'sold out' until 12:00 PM Central today...AppSumo is having 2 hour sales all day. This one has not started. Both BEFORE and AFTER the sale, it will say 'sold out' on the sales page.

Come back in 45 minutes.

It's not noon *yet*, Central Time.

You have 43 minutes to wait. As the covering email said, all the deals will say "Sold Out" except for the 2 hours they're valid.

Stalked this deal because it was so awesome!!

This was the answer to all my file backup worries. Couldn't have been easier. Thanks for bringing it back!!

Great product, pretty easy to use. Was sorry I missed it the first time around so set an alarm for Black Friday. Only quibble isn't w/AppSumo. But for BB, you have to register on the PC you installed the software on, and after you installed it. I'm sure their workflow is rational on their end, but could be a tad more customer friendly.

Grabbed the deal in a rush, but not sure whether restore operation is automatic or manual

Product seems good stuff but I bought it a bit in a rush and have some doubt now after reading the restore section about the restore operation : I thought it was handled automatically by the software as usually is when you restore from windows backup for instance, but in backblase it seems that you have to download a zip file and replace and copy all files manually in the appropriate directories which can be a bit of a pain because Backblaze saves some application and system data mixed up with unsaved data within the same directories. Backblaze guidelines give no other indication about the restore operation than to download the zip file..... More explanations on the restore operation would have been welcome since it is the most crucial point in buying such a product (in case of a failure with data loss, we want to be pretty sure to recover a running computer within 1 or two days at most!).

Backblaze is an amazing company

Seriously, if you haven't done any research about Backblaze and even if you missed this deal, they are amazing and you should use them as your backup.

Here's an article from back when they first got rolling and how they serve up petabytes of storage on the cheap (cheap for them means cheaper for you to purchase storage!):
http://blog.backblaze.com/2009/09/01/petabytes-on-a-budget-how-to-build-cheap-cloud-storage/

They provide details and schematics of their storage pods and have encouraged others to follow their model. This is the kind of company I like supporting with my slightly butt-warmed moolah.

Awesome Security

Unbelievably simple to set up and easy to access specific files when disaster or idiocy strikes.

Great timing!

In the jungle of Costa Rica for three months and forgot my back up drive. Now thousands of blurry monkey pictures are safe. Thanks!
