The answer to this is, sometimes. On a Windows operating, if the drive shows up under removable media and not hard drive drives, we will not back these drives up. If it does appear under hard disk drives, we will backup the thumbdrive.
This area where the drive is added, hard disk drives or removable media, is dictated by the WIndows operating system, the Backblaze client doesn't have any say as to how the drive is mounted, we have to just work with the information that the OS gives us.
