Backblaze also announced that they have developed a Restore Downloader app for Windows and Mac to help people download larger restore files using their web browser. This is a welcome feature to help people with downloading their restores. Browsers have never been very good at downloading large files so this will definitely help people that need to restore a large number of files after a hard drive failure or other problem. Of course if you need to download hundreds of GB’s you might want to order a USB hard drive or DVD restore. It costs a little more but it will be much faster to restore from in the event you do not have a local backup.
