Everything except the self-extracting installer
What does not
Self-extracting installer won't show a window.
To get around the self-extracting installer issue, you can extract and run the installer manually. To do this, unzip the installer executable (with unzip). You'll be left with a bunch of install files. To execute the install, run wine bzdoinstall.exe -doinstall '/path/to/extracted/install/files'
What was not tested
Use Wine drive mounts to control what's backed up. You can manually create a world read/write folder called .bzvol at the root of a Wine mount in order to enable that drive to be backed up. This works at the fs root as well (usually mounted under Z:), enabling the entire system to be backed up.
Consider adding exceptions for at least the /tmp, /run, and /snap folders, otherwise BackBlaze will waste time and bandwidth on transient files.
The main BackBlaze program name is bzbui.exe.
