"Often has errors, requires manual updates."
Version: MozyHome 188.8.131.52
Great when it works.
I have to manually download and install updates. An option for automatic updates ALWAYS crashes. When update is available, program will give error. That's how I know it's time to manually update.
"Cost increase of Mozy home"
Version: MozyHome 184.108.40.206
It was simple to use and worked nicely in the background. Also could access my Windows backup files from my iPad... very nice feature
I had a two year agreement for unlimited storage and used close to 500 gigs. I paid somewhere around $80 for two years. Now it's up for renewal and they want about $1,100 for the storage over two years. This is worse than Netfix. I tried contacting sales support on IM and they just asked me "well what do you want me to do about it?" Not even an explanation of why the cost went up 10 fold. So I started a free trial with Carbonite which has a similar deal for two years and a reasonable cost.
Cannot afford Mozy. Did not like the "don't care" attitude from their sales instant messaging. Maybe the company doesn't care???
