      Duplicati vs BackBlaze opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Duplicati is still a legitimate alternative to BackBlaze, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

      JohnFastman Duplicati is software that monitors changes in your files and creates backups to whatever destination you choose. It is not a service that provides storage, like Backblaze. But it does offer strong encryption, is free and open source. If it's storage online you want to buy for backup, try Backblaze with the encryption option on or go for Spideroak.

      Spideroak One Backup vs BackBlaze opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Spideroak One Backup is a great alternative to BackBlaze.
      robcollins SpiderOak appears to be the most secure commercially available alternative to Backblaze. The only downside is that its rigorous "zero-knowledge" policy can place a more noticeable processing burden on low-end computers. It's also somewhat less intuitive to set up.

      JohnFastman Spideroak offers a "zero-knowledge" policy by default (they can't look at your files even if they wanted to) - which is great. Backblaze has this only as an option. Spideroak works on Linux, Backblaze has no Linux client. Backblaze is cheaper, but is for backups exclusively whereas with Spideroak you can also sync files between computers.

    3. Easy: Doing backups should be a frictionless process, otherwise you are tempted to skip it. Restic should be easy to configure and use, so that in the unlikely event of a data loss you can just restore it. Likewise, restoring data should not be complicated.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman Sync is a brilliant alternative to Dropbox rather than Backblaze. It does everything Dropbox does for Syncing but with the added privacy and security of end-to-end encryption. However, it for syncing, and not really for backups. For backups try Backblaze with encryption on, Spideroak or iDrive (both have end-to-end crypto by default).

    5. Déjà Dup is a simple backup tool. It hides the complexity of doing backups the Right Way (encrypted, off-site, and regularly) and uses Duplicity as the backend.
