The In's and Out's of Data Backup with Backblaze

We all know we should back up our data, but 91% of people don't do it regularly and risk losing everything. Join us as we show you how easy data backup can be with Backblaze. We'll cover the set-up options and show you how easy it is to recover a single file, multiple files, or all your data whenever you need. We'll also cover how to use the Backblaze Mobile iPhone app to access your data from anywhere.
"We designed Backblaze unlike any other online software.There is no need to pick folders and files.          Easy. Secure. Your computer is going to love it. "

6:00pm to 7pm  Pre-Meeting Activities
7pm to 8:30pm General Meeting

Pre-Meeting: A big surprise for members that bring their laptops.......  Backblaze will be prepared to install the Backblaze program onto your laptop FREE for 3 months. NO credit cards or exchange of money, no obligations. You will have an opportunity for three months to examine and explore this program. All our computers need a secure backup, and there are many to choose from - this is just one but it is an excellent choice and they are giving you a chance to use it for 3 months FREE........ not sure any of the others are allowing the usage of their program for FREE. NOTE: if you have external hard drives that you want backed up bring them with your laptop. It must be plugged into your laptop when they install the program. Just more value for your money ($0)

The installing of the program will be happening between 6:00pm to 7pm. So come early with your laptop and allow them to install the program and then stay for the meeting and their presentation.
NOTE: only will install Backblaze for new Backblaze users/accounts. They can not add to an existing account. If husband and wife each have a laptop that would be two separate installations - not one installation per family but per laptop. The team will stay as long as possible after the meeting ends to try to install all they can. But if any members that brought their laptops that don't get installed that night, they will receive a certificate for three free months of Backblaze and you can do the installation at home.

Backblaze Installer: Yev Pusin Yev is the Social Media Maven at Backblaze. He has presented at multiple events, including being the MC for Backblaze Demo Theater at RootsTech in 2013 and 2014

NOTE: I have had this installed on my laptop & my external drive last year at RootsTech. It was free, quick and painless. It does it's backup thing regularly and if the external drive is not plugged in they will send you a message. It runs in the background and does not interfere with other programs, or the internet. Fortunately, I can't tell you how great it is because my system has not crashed - thank goodness. AND that is a good thing. (knock on wood!)

Pre-Meeting: For those NOT participating in the installation of Backblaze on your laptop and for those that are), we will be having our regular pre-meeting roundtables. Join us for that, meet other members who maybe researching in the same area's as you. It is certainly a small world, you never know who you maybe related too. It will  be held from 6:15pm to 7pm.........
