The time it takes to complete your initial backup with Backblaze Personal Backup depends on your internet connection and bandwidth. You can test your current connection to our Backblaze Personal Backup service using our Speed Test.
We recommend keeping your computer on at night and have it not go to sleep while Backblaze gets through the initial backup. Your first backup may take a little while, but after that Backblaze only uploads new or changed files, so it will be very quick.
