MozyHome is an online backup service. It keeps a backup copy of your files in one of our data centers. If you lose your original files, you can get a copy of them from Mozy.

Mozy is not a file sharing or archiving service. Other people will not be able to download your files. If you delete an original file on your computer, Mozy assumes that you no longer need a backup copy and will remove it from our servers after 30 days.

Mozy is smart about uploading files. It only uploads new files and the parts of an existing file that have changed.

Mozy Home is free for 2 GB of storage. 50 GB additional storage more...

False promises. There's nothing that can annoy me more than that. Speed sucks, backup isn't entirely reliable, the cost is unreasonable. Good luck guys. My Mac is better off without you.

Good grief, is this sucker still in business? And just wow, a whole TWO GIGS free! How can they afford that with all the other el cheapo cloud backup sites around giving away 3, 4, oven 5+ free GB (like Sugarsync, Skydrive, ZipCloud...).

oops! ZipCloud is Windoze only. I meant iCloud. :-( Give me a frownie.

Mozy was my first cloud backup solution, but I have just abandoned it for Backblaze due to their switch from the unlimited plan. Even though I am not backing up a huge amount (200-300 GB of mostly photos and some movies) the new plan would more than double my current cost. Backblaze, however, will let me do this for $4 per month with a two year subscription.

Mozy offers a few more features, file "sharing" access, and a mobile app, but I have never used any of those features. I just want an inexpensive, fast, and reliable backup solution. If you have less than 125GB to backup then Mozy is still an excellent choice, but not if you have a lot more.

I've also found the Mozy application/prefpane to be a little slower at uploading than Backblaze, and a little more buggy. It tends to stop backing up a little more often than Backblaze, which on my network (3MBit/s) chomped through about 30GBytes per day!

Generally not bad as a backup solution, but after Mozy has abandoned the unlimited data plan it became way too expensive. I cancelled my account when they changed their pricing and I was supposed to pay FIVE TIMES the amount I paid for the unlimited plan before (for less than 200GB). This is also around FIVE TIMES more than I pay now to a competitor. And, I have to add, the competitor has an excellent customer support (which Mozy traditionally lacks).
I can only advise everyone who has to work for his/her money: stay clear of Mozy unless they go back to a competitive pricing!

Support can be much better! I asked them to stop the automatic renewal of the subscription! They simply answered they cannot! On my further question why they cannot they didn't even answer!

I would be telling them "I can no longer continue to use your service, then."


They do say on their web page that if you do not want auto renewal, you should cancel your subscription. I think it is reasonable because they do not want the expense of bugging people who do not pay on time, or dealing with people who complain when their backup is deleted for not paying. That, however, does not excuse them for ignoring your emails.

I noticed this in the readme file:

"Mozy may protect you from a zombie invasion in a post-apocalyptic environment."

Can someone elaborate on this feature? I come across zombies all the time in the workplace, while I'm out shopping, and on Facebook, and I'm wondering if this might also be useful in dealing with them?

There is only one solution for zombies and that is to put plants around your house that kill zombies!

great concept - using it to back up 2 Macs (MBP & Mac MIni - including the full itunes lib) and one Windows machine.

The initial backup takes quite a while; but once done you don't feel the thing is running.

Backup's and transfer is encrypted.

Strongly recommend

1 - all given links here are dead, no immediate download, mozy.com asks to register first.

2 - I used mozy after very positive reviews in german c't – over a year, but ended in zero support (stability issues). My account has vanished. Actually mozy.com attempts to trick the user in a payed model – I got an ad-mail a few days ago saying 'why don't you come to backup all your data for a monthly 6$' - that doesn't exist at all (no flat).

3 - https://mozy.de/home/download gives links for downloads, but not for the version announced here...

-> Stay away.

PS: Rating (stars) here in MU was much simpler before...

I've been using Mozy for over a year, and it was generally working very well. My subscription is good for another years, but I will certainly not extend it now after the new prices came out. In my case, I backup a modest 160GB, and the new price would be more than three times higher than now.
One other thing I noticed a few days ago, and which I suspect to have happened "on purpose": I got an error that a required file was missing, and after Mozy resumed it showed me that it had to upload many GB of Data. I was suspicious, looked into what happened, and saw that the backup set now EXcluded my folders with photos and videos. Which for me was around 100GB of important information that was now EXcluded from backup. Basically exactly the data why I have bought an online backup solution.
I have heard that at least one other person had exactly the same "problem". So, guys, check your backup sets in the Mozy home program, and manually INclude your important data again.

I cannot go into details but someone gave me informations that mozy one lost a complete set of customers backups. And they never gave that information out to the affected customers. So everyone thought to be a single case. Clever.. but not very honest.


what can I say, I am not surprised.

Well, I've used Mozy for about 3 years and I've been happy with it. Now, with the new pricing scheme, it's going to cost me about $220 per year and that doesn't include any room for expansion. With Carbonite bing $56 a month, and with the performance, features, and ease being very equal between the two services, I certainly won't be staying. Honestly, I don't know why anyone would stay. True, uploading all of your data again will suck, but not as much as paying 4 or 5 times as much each month.

Mozy, you've been good, but now you're even better... for Carbonite!
