It’s important to understand the differences in cloud-based file sync and backup services, so you can make sure your data is as safe as possible. In my latest blog post on Backblaze, I take a look at one of the most popular sync services, Dropbox: How Dropbox works with Backblaze cloud backup. While you can back up files after a fashion with Dropbox, there are limitations you need to be aware of.
After we posted this, Ben McCarthy responded with a pithy tweet that I thought really framed the issue well.
@flargh Dropbox is great for the stuff you know you should back up. Backblaze is great for the stuff you’ve no idea you should be backing up
