@backblaze the accessibility of your app is a bit broken in windows 11. Using NVDA, a free and open source screen reader. I know your app somewhat works in Windows 10. Any plans to fix this soon?

@shapednoise @backblaze I'm not sure how @backblaze would help with this. Do they have some way to backup from iCloud directly to their servers? The issue is that the originals may not exist on my computer, but only in iCloud.

@duluca @backblaze The problem with backups for me is that I dont ever know how far to go back. Often the issue is truly unknown, so its faster and more stable to reinstall the OS.

@ComComPod I use Backblaze for good value cloud backup. It is not an archive system but if my house burns down, all my data is accessible to put on my next computer.

@ashleylynch Niiice!! I really want to invest in an LTO solution one day.
I have like ~25 tb of project data to backup, and while Backblaze/Google Workspaces technically work, I need something on site as well as off site. Pulling down 25 tb in a reasonable time is not possible.

Following-up on this, I found a simple solution to pay the problem away (for awhile), @backblaze offers "forever" versioning for a fee. It's easier to enable this than to add complexity to my existing workflow, though I will start retaining the old hard disks that I replace.

@backblaze As it turns out, it wasn't as dramatic as it looked. Seems like an issue with the UI requesting a dir listing while the listing was still being built. After the tree was built, it worked okay. It got me worried that the bucket was broken. Glad it's ok!

@killerb77 @backblaze I’m not implying that. I’m implying sending emails to thousands and thousands of customers takes time and it would probably be more sensible to deal with the issue and communicate via faster a medium. E-mails aren’t instant - people still would have received them after the outage

@bootlesshacker @backblaze You missed my point. You are implying they could only fix the problem and then communicate. I am grateful they mitigated the problem promptly. They didn’t inform the customers promptly. Email campaigns can be done by 3rd party providers simultaneously as they apply the patches.
