  • Mozy Online Back-Up Problems

    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!

      Please note that their Online backup service is not free. Are you entirely sure you have configured it the right way?
      On a side note You seemed to have posted on quite a few forums, why? : http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...problems&meta=
