CLARENCE, N.Y. – MacSolutions Plus – the area’s leading independent Apple Premier Partner store – is suggesting Mac owners register for a new online backup system, Backblaze.

“You may think you don’t have enough valuable information on your computer to need a backup service, but like the saying goes- you don’t know what you have until it’s gone,” said Garret Cleversley, owner and president of MacSolutions Plus. “Backblaze is the best backup option out there due to the fact that it is simple, easy and affordable – plus it was developed by former Apple employees. For just $5 a month there’s no reason for any Mac to be without backup software.”

Backblaze, a new online backup system for Mac, automatically finds all photos, music, documents, and other irreplaceable files and compresses and securely encrypts them. This new backup software allows users to download and install Backblaze and be backing up data in under a minute. A great feature of online backups is that if a Mac suffers from water damage, a dead hard drive, or even if it’s stolen, all files can easily be recovered online without the use of an external device. Backblaze is available starting at just $5 per month for customers of MacSolutions Plus.
