I am talking about any service out there (BackBlaze, Carbonite, etc...). Consider the following scenario that actually happened last week.
Power went out and my NTFS drive (connected to a NAS of sorts, RT-N56 Asus Router) got corrupted. And by corrupted I mean it lost the last month worth of changes. Other than that the hard continued working fine as if nothing happened. And of course, I didn't know it at the time because it just sits behind the NAS and I didn't think to check.
My question is this. If the last month of hard drive changes simply disappeared, the online backup software would have simply backed up what it sees. Would I be able to go back in time (with the online backup provider) prior to the power loss and retrieve the lost data?
