Yes

Backblaze has been around for a long time and has a large user base. It's easy and cheap, and makes backup mindless, which is why it works. I wouldn't overthink it. If you need unlimited backup that just works and runs in the background, I wouldn't overthink it. Just get it.

4) 3 of the 4 computers are in the same residence so are networked via a homegroup.

If it is possible for me to set-up automatic back-ups from 2 of the 3 networked computers to the 3rd networked computer or wirelessly to an external hard drive, then backblaze with 2 devices is likely the best option because it offers more storage space. Otherwise, iDrive seems like the most cost-effective for now.

Can I do the former?
