How to optimize your settings for faster uploads

By changing a few settings on Backblaze and your computer, you can help to optimize your backup speed:


1.  Disable your computer's sleep settings as Backblaze can only upload while your computer is on.  We have a walkthrough on how to do so here:

2.  Increase Backblaze's speed throttle, and the number of threads used.

3.  Set your Backblaze schedule to 'continuous':

4.  Hardwire your internet connection rather than wifi (if possible)

5.  Keep all external drives connected (if applicable)


*Note - please keep in mind that these options will use more bandwidth
