Data transfer is performed by CloudBerry Backup with a backup plan that uses the Fireball as the S3-compatible storage target.</p> <p>Once the backup is complete, you should transfer the Fireball back to BackBlaze and they will transfer the data from the device into your B2 bucket. Then you need to change the target storage in your backup plan from the Fireball to your regular B2 account (with the exact same bucket). Synchronize the repository so that CloudBerry Backup will match the local files with the files in the cloud and from then on you can proceed to continue backing up your data the regular way.</p>
