aboylikedave: This all sounds good. As an aside I've just done a Speedtest at work and it has upload of 65Mbps. Does that mean if I sneaked (!) my iMac to work it would be 60 times faster to Backup? Would it cause any major tech problems?
A) Well done on backing up your stuff
B) Well done on choosing Backblaze - I've used it for years and it's been great
C) Apart from the business concerns others have raised, NO, it won't be 60 times faster. Backblaze uploads aren't blistering fast. On a VDSL connection with about 10mbps up, I get about 3-4mbps upstream when I have backups happening.
D) What everyone else said about limiting your upload to 80ish percent is spot on.
I also find that if I want to DL something I just hit pause on teh BB client - it automatically restarts in a couple of hours.
