November 25, 2013, 1:03 PM — Here's a terrific deal for anyone who's ever been concerned about losing all their important files. For three days, Backblaze is just $25 for a year of unlimited backup. That's half off the regular price.
The deal is available exclusively on AppSumo. It's good for unlimited backup for one computer, but you can buy multiple subscriptions to back up a whole family of computers.
Backblaze was already a pretty good deal--just $5 a month to automatically back up all your files. It takes just a minute to set up, runs efficiently in the background, and also backs up attached hard drives. It's really effortless.
The clock is ticking. If you don't already have an offsite backup solution, here you go. For about the cost of a cup of coffee every day, you can have the peace of mind that your data is safe just in case your hard drive dies (it happens! a lot!), your laptop gets stolen, or some other PC nightmare happens.
