Mozy Online Back-Up Problems
« on: August 27, 2009, 12:44:39 pm »

I installed MOZY FREE Backup software on my computer by following their instructions.

After installation, my computer kept freezing and then I got the Windows Blue Screen of Death!

Basically, MOZY FREE Backup CRASHED my computer.  I could not even do a system restore. I had to restore my computer from scratch.  I am still in the process of putting back all my programs and files, this is very time consuming.

Furthermore, after I backed up my files, I could not retrieve them using another computer. It kept telling me that I had to register and install MOZY Backup, it just would not retrieve my previous registration.

I am still not able to retrieve my files.  Luckily, I kept local backups on some DVD's. MOZY may be free, but there is always a catch.  Please be aware Mozy free backup could crash your computer?
 Maybe that's how they get you; then they tell you have to purchase one of their plans???

FYI:  I have 2GB of RAM and a 2.0 GHz AMD processor and it still CRASHED it!

   Did you back up your files to a Buffalo NAS unit?  I've never heard of Mozy crashing a computer before.  Good thing the files were backed up in multiple places.  Had you tried the Memeo software also?  It was pretty easy to configure, altho at times it would tie up system resources.  It tries to only do backups during idle cycles but sometimes it freaks out
