iTunes restore guide for the Mac

Restoring for:

Mac iTunes



Sign into the site

Click the "Sign in to Restore" link and enter your Backblaze account email address and password.


Select the Computer you want to Restore

Click the "Restore File" link next to the computer's name you want to restore.


Select the iTunes Files to Restore

On the 'View/Restore Files' page click the folders: 
Macintosh HD > Users > YOURNAME > Music > iTunes
Select the iTunes Music folder and click the button 'Continue with Restore'

Note: This is where most users have their iTunes music stored. Some people may have their music located elsewhere or on an external drive.


Download the restore zip file

Backblaze will email you when your restore file has been prepared. It can take anywhere from a minute to a few hours depending on the size to prepare the download file. You can then click on the 'My Restores' page and download the zip restore. Usually your web browser (Safari, Firefox) will download the restore file to your 'Downloads' folder. Wait for the download to complete and then double click the zip file to uncompress the files. 



Copy Restores to the Correct Folder

Once you have unzipped the restore file, you can open it up and view the files. Open up your Main Identity folder on your local computer found in Macintosh HD > Users > YOURNAME > Music > iTunes
We recommend creating a new folder called 'old' and put your local copy of the iTunes files inside. Then select and move your restored files from the Downloads folder to the local iTunes folder. 

Open iTunes and make sure your music was restored succesfully.
