When the only free restore method offers can't restore all your files... How annoying. I can work around by doing it in chunks, but that's not a great UX. I guess I might be looking for new offsite backup service when I'm done with this HDD recovery.

Ugh. Sorry to hear that. Restoring from offsite backups isn’t how anyone wants to spend the holidays. I, too, have often wished that Backblaze would improve their restoration process. It seems to have been unchanged / unimproved for a long time. Maybe checkout ?

Oh, and as for Arq: I don’t have any Macs any more.

😳 Well, Arq works with Windows, too: (although their “hosted backup” says Windows support is coming).

It’s not a huge deal. The HDD is failing SMART but still working. I’m dragging this down from offsite because in theory that’s easier than salvaging the half-dead drive.
