I have a backup drive that then gets backed up to Backblaze by the software agent. I exclude everything on main C:\. Works great.
I don't know who needs to hear this, back up your data. The external hard drive holding every picture and video you hold dear is going to get dropped or just die.

How did you swing that? My WD MyCloud won't connect to BB.

Same, private key in Backblaze, test restores of a few files about once a month.

Yes. Extremely set-and-forget.

So you backup your non-C:\ drives to the external backup drive, and then back that drive to Backblaze? What do you use to backup initially to the external drive?

I wish there was a better option if you run a home NAS device. I currently sync to a consumer cloud storage service but Backblaze on desktop offers a lot of storage for very little. B2 by comparison is quite expensive, especially if you ever need to download your data.

Would this work with a Synology NAS?

No as far as I am aware you need a B2 bucket for a Synology NAS and then you can use the Synology CloudSync app. Happy to be corrected on that though if anyone knows a way!
