Backblaze doesn't backup Time Machine

To avoid duplicating data, Backblaze will not back up any drive that contains Time Machine data on it, just like Time Machine won't back up any data that's located on the Time Machine drive itself. The drive will be listed in Backblaze's "Select Hard Drives to Backup" as Time Machine and will not be selectable.




If you'd like to back up that drive to Backblaze, you have two options:

1. Turn off Time Machine, delete the Time Machine data from the drive, and select the drive for backup in Backblaze.

2. Split the drive in to two partitions, one for Time Machine, the other for data. The data drive can be backed up to Backblaze.
