Backblaze backup is extremely inefficient. On purpose? : backblaze
(On getting Backblaze to upload an initial batch of files quickly:)
“Global Observation #1: make sure your Backblaze backup schedule is set to ‘Continuously’ and turn off all power savings modes on your computer so it does not go to sleep, and go to the ‘Performance’ tab and set it to at least 4 threads (turn off automatic throttling and slide the performance slider all the way to the right), then leave your computer on all night long. DO NOT TOUCH IT - ideally YOU (the human) go to sleep and let it backup all night long (best is 12 hour stretches). Seriously, with one night of this hopefully you’ll upload several hundred thousand files and start relaxing and knowing that Backblaze works.”

Do Helium-Filled Hard Drives Perform Better Than Air-Filled Drives?
My hypothesis is that after normalizing the data so that the helium and air-filled drives have the same (or similar) usage (Drive Days), the helium-filled drives we use will continue to have a lower Annualized Failure Rate versus the air-filled drives we use.
