I wish I could write a glowing review about Cloudberry but my experience has been less than satisfactory. Specifically, every backup to Google Drive has errors saying files (2) not found. I have searched for those "missing files" on Google Drive and my computer and I cannot find either one. I have written support and sent them everything they have asked for and the problem persists.
I find it ironic that the Cloudberry response recommends AWS for backups. I am an Amazon Prime Subscriber and I signed up for Amazon cloud storage. However, I have stopped using it because it would never sync with specified folders on my hard drives.
With Cloudberry it is always someone else's fault but, significantly, before you buy their web pages indicates their product works with Google Drive. Now it is Googles problem? I don't think so!
Copied from the Cloudberry web page: Supported cloud storage services:
Google Cloud Storage
Amazon Cloud Drive
vCloud Air (EMC)
vCloud Air (Google)

Very, good backup program. I hope the company will continue to improve their backups software.

It seems like a solid product. I have tested several backup programs so far. Cloudberry seems to have all the features to backup to the cloud and to do complete local backups.

I have been manually uploading files from my NAS to Google Drive, because I don't have the NAS connected to my computer. I am doing my initial upload, and everything is working great so far.

Great option for multiple backups - using Backblaze (first 10gb free). Switched from Crashplan (closed for home users) and Acronis (didn't work properly). Very flexible.

Provides a good DIY cloud backup solution. Supports dozens of cloud service providers, file versioning, encryption, and does not leak meta data by encrypting file names (that last one is possible on some but not all clouds). The software is robust and easy to use. I have tested a half-dozen backup solutions and CloudBerry Backup is the most reliable, flexible and easy to use (compared to Duplicati and Arq for example).

I was having trouble connecting the CloudBerry to my mapped network drive to back it up to a B2 Storage on Backblaze. I replied to the introductory email from CloudBerry and a very knowledgeable technician responded, with relevant information within a day! The problem ended up being something very specific to my setup, and I was able to figure it out, but the fact that they were so fast to respond and with helpful information was a big plus.
Very fast technical support. Easy to set up with lots of options.
Detailed explanation for connecting to Drobo would be nice.

>1TB backed up to Wasabi. Great speed. Great support when the backup failed (my fault, I had some messed up files)
Review by SuntoryTimes Thottupura1 year ago
Cloudberry backup seems to offer exactly what I'm looking for; utilizing cloud storage without a 3rd party service, remaining in control of my data, advanced options (types of backups, retention policies, a variety of cloud storage options).
Only downside it that you need to spend a fair amount of time figuring out how to tune your backup plans to optimize cost to different use cases

the tool is easy to use, and easy to navigate. It provides an increasingly easy interface into AWS Cloud Management. I've tried using the AWS tools - and this beats them hands down! Do yourself a favor and save tons of time and frustration - BUY THIS TOOL

I've been trying different software options to backup to my Backblaze B2 account with little luck. Most drop their connections and/or don't use all of my available upload speeds. Not the case with Cloudberry Lab Backup. I've been uploading large amounts of data for many days at a time with no connection issues at all. And Cloudberry is utilizing all of my available bandwidth to do so. This thing is rock solid. The interface allows for a lot of control on how and when you upload files. Which is great for someone who appreciates that amount of control. I highly recommend Cloudberry Lab Backup!

I use CloudBerry to backup and restore to and from Amazon Glacier and have found it to be a much better and easier solution than the other backup solutions I've used in the past.

Before I started with CloudBerry, i have been using CrashPlan for many years, however, they discontinued some backup plans recently which make me look for another cloud backup solution. I have tried several solutions, but out of all solutions, CloudBerry seems to suit most of my requirements. I wanted a flexible solution where I could choose the backup software and the cloud service.
CloudBerry desktop pro itself is easy to use, is very flexibel and has many usefull options. Compared to CrashPlan, CloudBerry seems to have a very small memory print which leaves more free memory fot day to day usage.
What I like:
- backup to whatever you want (Local backup, cloud backup, ...)
- image backup
- one time payment
- choice of cloud partner. I'm working with blackblaze B2
- low memory/cpu usage
What I don't like
- artifical storage limit of 5 TB. It may seems a lot of space, but I have more than 5TB to backup (lot of photo's and video's)

It is the ideal product for a Backup to an S3 (Bucket) Storage! I like the many settings such as compression when uploading.

Nice app for Backup
Review by Ebsen1 year ago
I have been evaluating CloudBerry Desktop Backup on a Windows 10 machine and a Linux (Mint 17.1) machine for about a week now. I am uploading to a Backblaze B2 account and have numerous backup plans uploading to a number of Backblaze buckets as well as doing some LAN backups to a local file server on our network. So far, everything has worked really well. I do wish the Linux version's feature set was as robust as the Windows version. With that being said though, both versions are adequately meeting my needs.
For the few minor issues I have had Cloudberry's support has been very responsive and helpful.
