Scheduled Maintenance

Backblaze performs regular maintenance every Thursday from 11:30 am to 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time with the aim to consistently improve our systems and services. 

Most customers will not be affected during this maintenance due to the distributed nature of the systems being serviced. For example, Computer Backup uploads and most B2 Cloud Storage operations (i.e., uploads, downloads, listing, key creation) will function normally. Within the maintenance window, some customers may experience interruptions of five to 15 minutes in the following areas:

Web Interface

  • Website sign-on
  • New account creation

Computer Backup

  • Data restore and recovery
  • Backups may sleep temporarily
  • Sign-in via installers and apps

B2 Cloud Storage

  • Bucket creation, deletion, and API update
  • B2 Snapshot creation
