How do you download and extract data from a B2 snapshot?

Download

To download your snapshot, please sign in to Backblaze at:
https://secure.backblaze.com/user_signin.htm?&hopto=b2_snapshots.htm

Click on the “Download” button adjacent to the snapshot you want to download.

 

Unzip for Windows

If you are running Windows, please note that if your zip file contains non-english file names or is larger than 2GB in size, it may not be able to open using the built-in Windows zip utility. For best results we recommend using 7-zip, which can be found here: http://www.7-zip.org/. An alternative to 7-zip, WinRar can be found here: http://www.rarlab.com/.

 

Unzip for Mac

You do not need to install any third-party utility on the Mac. Just double-click the .zip file in the Finder to launch Apple’s built-in Archive Utility. If you are having difficulties using Archive Utility, we recommend using Betterzip, which can be found here: http://macitbetter.com/.

 

Unzip for Non-Mac OS X or Windows Operating Systems

For operating systems other than Mac OS X or Windows, you can use an Info-ZIP 6.00 compliant unzip tool, like the one found here: http://www.info-zip.org/UnZip.html.

 

USB Hard Drive

You can order a USB hard drive or flash key that contains the data from your snapshot. The files inside the USB restore will already be unzipped.

To order a USB snapshot restore, please sign into Backblaze at: https://secure.backblaze.com/user_signin.htm?&hopto=b2_snapshots.htm. Make sure you at the 'Snapshots' page. 

You can order either a USB Flash Drive ($99 and up to 110 GB of data) or a USB Hard Drive ($189 and up to 3.5 TB of data).

 

Please note that our Restore Return Refund program does NOT apply for B2 snapshots restores.
