Mozy is also very easy to use and anybody can get with the software very quickly and start using it. It helps me secure all my data without having the chance of losing any of it.

What do you dislike?

I have been using mozy since quite a time and I actually seem to have no problems with it nor did I fin any drawbacks in Mozy. However, I only get a limited space for storage and I have to only use it. If the developer had given us the full advantage of using as much space as we want, it would b very helpful.

For those of you who are looking for some serious applications for back up, then i would personally suggest you to use Mozy not only because of its user friendly interface but also because of how efficiently the software works.

"Mozy has saved me - and my files - on multiple occasions!"

What do you like best?

I can "set and forget it" - but if a backup hasn't been able to complete, I get a notice about that so I can always make sure my files and data is protected. The ability to get to my files and data anywhere that I have an internet connection is invaluable, and one that I've used several times. I don't dread replacing my computer now that I have Mozy - it's very simple to move from one device to another. I also like being able to have my husband's computer on my plan, so I have piece of mind that both devices are being regularly backed up.

What do you dislike?

In the event that you have to restore your files, it can be very time consuming - but considering how much data is being saved, it's a small price to pay.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There have been several times that I've used my Mozy backups to retrieve files that were accidentally deleted. I've also used it to seamlessly move from one computing device to another. I've also recommended Mozy to family and friends and they have been thankful for peace of mind it has provided.

"Quality Back Up Service For A Good Price"

What do you like best?

The syncing process of uploading your files to the cloud is very easy. I never had any trouble figuring out what files were backed up and which files weren't. Also the process of downloading saved files after a crash was very easy. It's s service I sued moer than once.

What do you dislike?

While the software provided is powerful, I think they could do better with the amount of space they give you for the money you are paying for. Ultimately I discontinued using Mozy because I needed more space. The features I traded from mozy for more space were worth the money.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are just getting started backing things up online into the cloud, Mozy is a great place to start. Very user friendly sfotware.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The recovery of my lost data was the biggest problem I solved with mozy. While I didn't settle on this software overall, I would certainly recommend it to someone who was curious to try it out.

"Great backup software with automated replication to the cloud"

What do you like best?

Ease of use, install and backup data to the cloud.

What do you dislike?

Not great for backing up databases, such as Exchange or SQL. Best fit for smaller environments (1-2 servers).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you require a backup software for data, Mozy charges based on space. This is not a great solution if you have a very large set of data as you will pay for it to upload to the cloud. That being said, if you're a small shop with "average" data, this tool will automatically backup all data effortlessly.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The software is great for backing up data and replicating it in real time to the cloud. It does not do a great job with databases or bare metal restoration of servers. Best fit for smaller companies but is very easy to implement and administer.

That it is fairly cheap for an online backup system, it's very easy to setup, it's easy to add more space when needed, and it's VERY easy that it just does it's "thing" behind the scenes and I will never be put in the situation where I lost all of my important files and photos!

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything I don't like about Mozy. I am only sorry that I had to lose a lot of my files and photos first before I started using Mozy.

"Good to use but makes the system extremely slow"

What do you like best?

Mozy is easy to use. I was able to recover the files very easily once when I lost few files from my system.

- Easy to recover files.

- Not much difficult to configure, although we had some IT help.

- We can schedule the backup's.

- The alternative for poor performance is do not schedule the backup in the office hours.

What do you dislike?

- When mozy is in progress of taking backup, the system becomes drastically slow.

- It's very hard to even pause then mozy is in progress.

- All you have to do it bear with it.

- We had to select the folder manually which has to be added for backup, that process somewhat can improved.

- if your system has antivirus and mozy both running, you can't do anything else, even though my system RAM was 32 GB.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

- Easy to Configure

- Easy to Use

- All I did not like is, it makes the system pathetically slow, rest all is quite good.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had mozy installed in everyone's system. We were using mozy to restore the lost files.

"Easy backup to the cloud"

What do you like best?

Setup is very easy and also the way to select folders/files to backup is extremely easy.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the backups take very long and it is difficult for the client to keep up with the amount of changes. Normally this happens at the beginning of the setup but once that is done there are no problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You need to try it with the trial they offer. I think the best you can do is to test with a sample of your files so the initial setup doesn't take too long and then run tests of restore. You'll find it is very easy to do

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Everything at work we backup with mozy. All of our documents and project files are in the cloud with them.

"It is an effective way to backup pertinent user data even for the consummate traveler."

What do you like best?

What I love best about Mozy is the incremental backup system it does and that it takes advantage of whenever the machine is connected to the internet to initiate the backups in the background. it will do this on a variable you select in upwards of 12 times a day maximum. It's not overly resource intensive either.

What do you dislike?

Honestly the thing I liek least is that the initial implementation is lengthy based on the local data stored for the user. If you have a large OST file in Outlook that you want to backup you feel it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a versatile cloud based backup option that works as well for your stationary and traveling users.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have many users who aren't stationary so this allows them to be in a hotel or client and still safeguard their data to a cloud based managed and secure service.

"simple to use across both mac and pc"

What do you like best?

the auto schedule capabilities keeps you worry free. you know your files are being backed up, even if you don't sense that a process is running.

What do you dislike?

in general i like my machines to be pristine, so admittedly i was not a fan when our outsourced IT team suggested we use mozy. but that was a while back. now it's just on and running without any intervention from me.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

i work on a marketing team where everything is content, content, content. we have many ways that we share files, like dropbox, box, google drive, etc...so i'm constantly syncing or downloading team members locally to work on them. with so many files and revisions, i never know if my stuff is backed up appropriately in case my laptop is stolen or is dropped, etc... that's where mozy comes in. to give me the piece of mind that all my stuff is protected

"Mozy Backup"

What do you like best?

Simple, ease to setup and use. Can control bandwidth up/down so it doesn't kill your other apps.It has version control, file syncing, 50Gb's is a decent amount to start off with. Security encrtyption is minimal at 128 bit. Restoring files is a breeze and simpler than some other services which email you the file back. It looks and feels like a restore in Explorer (Windows)

What do you dislike?

A little expensive for what you get. When you install the program, it tries to do a full backup by default and that can take forever depending on how much data you have. What would be better is the ability to select only the files you want initially.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Crashplan, AWS, Barracuda

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Desktop/Laptop standalone backups for people who do not participate in the domain or network.

"Mazy Pro Backup Office Laptop"

What do you like best?

It doesnt bother the user when backing up. Just runs in the background in specified intervals.

What do you dislike?

If the backup didnt run the user doesnt get any notification of failure. The IT guys dont keep track of whether our data was backed up or not.

Sometimes background running slows the PC down.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Mozy Pro lets you manage backup and restore remotely from admin pc.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy migration of data from one laptop to another in case of hardware failure. The restoring of backup if pretty simple and happens in th ebackground one new hardware has been setup

"Simple and effective backup"

What do you like best?

Mozy is a set-it-and-forget-it backup routine - which is vital to get people to actually keep their data backed up on a consistent, ongoing basis.

What do you dislike?

Interface feels slightly dated, but given how little I interact with it, it doesn't matter all that much.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Easy setup and flawless backup. What more do you need?

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Perpetual, ongoing backup. New files are pushed to the backup cloud whenever there's an idle cycle in my computer use - so really, it's like having perpetual backup. Since I've started using Mozy, I've never suffered data loss that I couldn't easily recover from.

"A quick background backup client that's very unobtrusive"

What do you like best?

The application sits in the background giving you peace of mind that your data will remain safe (through redundancy). You're also able to indicate certain files not be backed up by keeping them in folders, which may be desirable if you're paranoid about security.

What do you dislike?

You have to put files into a specific folder to prevent them from being backed up, instead of selecting specific folders you might not want backed up. Which is fine. This is mainly only an issue in folder hierarchies, as you can always keep info on separate partitions, or drives and not worry about it. Not to mention, it's secure, so why not just backup everything anyway?

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a very unobtrusive software; in fact you might even forget that it's there if you're not looking at your system tray. Set it and forget it, and let your data remain secure!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Maintaining file integrity, in the event of loss. Being cloud-based, it's also possible to 'recover' files that you might have forgotten to bring with you to a business conference or otherwise.

"Mozy - Great Backup Software"

What do you like best?

I love that you can choose what folders or files you need to backup from the desktop app, and you do not have to go online every time to change settings. You can add more devices even after the account is active and setup.

What do you dislike?

I really do not dislike anything, it is really easy to use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Mozy for backups of laptops and servers. There are many benefits like being able to add users immediately, no delay, really easy to download the application on the computer, you can add more devices even after setting up the user with 1 computer.

"Great Backup for Home use"

What do you like best?

I enjoy the easy use for setup and ability to access anywhere after the sync has been established.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the fact that it's not a true network based solution as some have proposed. I tested and was unable to create a backup of my "home share" which carried my documents, desktop, etc.. this was due to setup not being able to recognize my network config.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This was helpful for remote users and creating backups of data in case of downed equipment or laptop swap outs.

"pretty reliable"

What do you like best?

the backups are quick and don't hog up resources

What do you dislike?

the time it takes to load what you're backing up is ridiculous. to get to the LIST of files to restore takes about 10 minutes of just waiting. I know its hundreds of thousands of files but I bet there is a faster way to do this.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

easy to use, easy to get started, the whole allocation of space to individual users is nice, but if you don't need it, it can be confusing

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

its an online backup solution. let's not overcomplicate this.

There is not much I disliked about this site. I wish that you did not have to pay for it but it is understandable.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Benefits I am realizing are that we are able to store more online and cut down having to have so much hard copies of documents.

"MozyPro not all it's cracked up to be"

What do you like best?

MozyPro has some great features; Easy set up, web based management console, rules which allow you to manage an entire organization.

What do you dislike?

The biggest problem with Mozy has been it's reliability. We have had to manually update, stop the service and restart, completely uninstall and reinstall and critical data has been lost by backups. Too unreliable over 60+ workstations to recommend

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you have redundant backups as well to prevent loss of critical data

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were trying to prevent loss of critical data due to intentional espionage, viruses and other unintentional methods. We have had some success in restoring data when situations occurred, but also had several failures.

"Mozy can help you with saving your data"

What do you like best?

Set it and forget it. I don't have to really do anything. Once you set up the parameters for how Mozy will save and backup your data it runs quietly and efficiently in the background. I don't have to do anything else unless I need to retrieve something.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike. You can push it out to multiple workstations if necessary and if you have trouble with a hard drive and need to go back to retrieve a file or a last good save it's very easy

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Whether you have 1-3 or 100-300 workstations, Mozy has a solution

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Outages and down-time happens. Mozy makes sure you don't lose anything that you've done in the past if you need to go find it. Or if you have to rebuild a drive, it's all archived.

"Simple yet effective cloud back-up and restore solution"

What do you like best?

Set it to run and back-up once or twice a day, select files / directories you want to back-up, and it does it all for you.

Super simple to restore files too, e.g. after over-writing

What do you dislike?

running out of space, but then I either buy more space, or remove old directories no longer needing backup

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Start free, but pay if you need it once you can see what it can do

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Back-up, Restore, Resilience, Security

"Easy backup experience!"

What do you like best?

How quick the backups occur, takes almost no time.

What do you dislike?

After the backup is complete, the program won't shut down.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's an easy enough tool to use, I'd suggest giving it a trial run, especially if you are looking for ease of security.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security. Allows us to work from the cloud more often, and in the event of a lost machine, we are not at a loss, and can pick right back up.

Helpful?
