The plugin reports the following items:

  • Whether Backblaze is installed
  • When the backup has not been performed as expected
  • Frozen backup state Learn more...
  • Which volumes are being backed up
  • Which volumes have gone missing from the backup set
  • When the Backblaze license is expired or about to expire (useful for those who are Backblaze partners so you can capture the referral revenue from a license renewal)
  • If .bzvol folder is missing or damaged (useful regarding this issue involving Adobe Creative Cloud)

Note: Be aware of default file and folder exclusions for Mac and WIndows. Watchman Monitoring reports file type exclusions including iso, dmg and sparseimage.
