If you are not running an Operating System supported by Backblaze your backups can either not function properly, or not back up altogether. Backblaze recommends that you always update to the most current supported version of your operating system. You can find information on what Operating Systems are supported by Backblaze here.
Expected behavior when using an unsupported OS
- The Backblaze App will notify you that you must upgrade your Operating System and the Backblaze software.
- Automatic updates to the Backblaze software may no longer work depending on the Operating System and Backblaze software version number.
- In some cases, where the Operating System and Backblaze App version are not compatible or severely out-of-date, backups will no longer occur and pop-up dialogs will guide the user what to do next.
