Just tried this new version after having it not installed for a couple months (and totally non-functional for a couple before that!). Still _KILLS_ the performance on your computer. I have mine throttled as far as upload, but that didn't stop it from immediately attempting a backup process. After examining files for a half hour, it showed that it was starting a backup, which involved another ten minutes of "Communicating with server." MozyHome.app crashed the first time I tried to open it. The Console.app shows the following error multiple times: CoreEndianFlipData: error -4940 returned for rsrc type FREF (id 129, length 7, native = no)
Whatever that means.
In short, still the same slow, bloated mess. Find something else would be my recommendation - it's clear to me that whoever is developing this software cannot build a product that runs well on Macs.
Oh, when I clicked Stop it took several minutes to do so. And, my fans kicked into gear once it showed that it HAD stopped. I opened Activity Monitor and found that the MozyHomeBackup process was using about 100% CPU (maxing out one of my MacBook Pro's dual cores), heating up my Mac when it was supposed to be doing nothing! Force Quit that. Uninstalling again.
Don't tell me to contact Support - last time I tried to work with them was a nightmare. I clearly described a problem with the Mac OS X version and they responded with Windows troubleshooting steps. Once I finally got through to a "Mac" support person, the troubleshooting advice was to wipe out everything and start from a clean install. Did so, it worked for less than a week before the same problems came back. Of course, if you have more than 10 or 20 GB of backup data, that week-long window of functionality is less time than it takes to make a successful full backup.
