You never know when disaster is going to strike. Everything could be working great before lunch, come back from lunch and your computer hard drive might have died. Of course in a perfect world you will have a local backup to restore from the day before. That will restore all of your files except for the files you were working on that morning. All is not lost though because Backblaze runs continuously in the background the files from the morning should be backed up online. Previously it was not really possible to select the most recently files from your Backblaze backup to restore, but they have recently announced that you can select files from within a date range to restore. With this feature you can easily select all the most recent files that were backed up that morning from our example. A great new feature to see added to Backblaze.

Backblaze has made a new release available and all users are scheduled to be automatically upgraded over the next couple of weeks. Below are the enhancements in this release:
