Pros: I use Mozy as a backup service for all my design files on my work computer as well as my personal files on my home computer. The plan I'm on lets me have up to 3 computers connected for backup, so I have my parents' laptop being backed up as well.

Business wise, this tool is invaluable. My computer crashed a few years ago completely. To the point where I had to do a factory reset. If it hadn't been for Mozy, I would have lost everything. Fortunately I had Mozy and lost almost nothing. It's also great for transferring computers. You can do a final backup on the old machine and do a full restore on the new machine and everything will be restored in the same way as it was on the old machine, file folder structures included.

Cons: With Google and Microsoft offering tons of storage very cheaply, Mozy is kind of expensive. But it does have automatic incremental backup and one click restore which neither Drive or OneDrive have, so I suppose that's the trade off.

Pros: Reliable - great peace of mind that all documents are backed up.

Set it and forget it

Cons: The only thing that is a negative is how long it takes to do the initial backup and when downloading all of the files to a new PC, but i'm not sure there is anything they can do to speed this up.

Overall: Use it to back up all documents on our laptops so if we have any issues, we have them available. Also makes rebuilding laptops very easy when getting a new one.

Comments: I don't know how you gave this app 4 stars. It is dreadful. I paid for a 2-year backup service and downloaded this app so I could access my files anywhere at any time, just as they claim. But the one time, the one single time I needed the app to work for me it let me down miserably. A total and utter failure of an app. When trying to access my files through the app it just sat there spinning until it eventually crashed. So I never got to access my files like they claimed I would!!! I don't put up with that kind of crap so I cancelled my membership and asked for pro-rated refund. Only problem is that won't refund any of your money after 90 days!! A total rip off organization if there ever was one. A miserable, total, and utter failure of an application. Must have been designed, coded, and tested by monkeys. No wait, that's an insult to monkeys...

Pros: Backed up off of my Mac though slow as molasses in winter

Cons: So many it would take too long to mention here. But suffice it to say that the application failed miserable when I needed it to work for me, as I've noted in the review.

Recommendations to other buyers: Stay as far away from this application as you can

Pros: This software is fantastic. Very little you need to do to have files backed up and the restoration process was amazingly simple. My computer died and I couldn't access any of the files. When I purchased a replacement, the restore process was so easy and super fast! I was really impressed.

Cons: I kept running out of space. Had to go up to the next level. Due to money issues I had to stay on a lower plan which started to not meet my needs. I also had wished you could preview files a little easier on the web version l. I ended up accidentally downloading the files a bunch of times.

Overall: Easy way to backup and restore files.

This has been excellent as an automatic backup for my computer.

Pros: What I like most about this software is how effortless it makes backing up the important files on my computer.

Cons: What I like least about this software is the amount of space that comes with the initial set up. I quickly met the max amount of space and would need to upgrade for a fee.

I feel safe with Mozy. I know my files are backed up.

Pros: Mozy is great to have for the office. Files are backed up across the network safely and securely. They are also easily accessible.

Cons: The only problem I have run into is storage limits. I have had to delete things quite a few times to make more room.

Good alternative to an external hard drive

Comments: Mozy is a great remote backup software that carries out the backup automatically. The automatic backups are carried out even when your computer is not in use. You don't have to worry about doing a backup yourself and you can request Mozy to send you DVD backups. With the mobile app the users can securely access the files protected with Mozy. It is an excellent alternative to my old external hard drive. I am very happy with this software.

Pros: The is no extra hardware to buy and no setup fees Mozy is really easy to use Mozy allows you to select a folder or individual files you wish to have backed up You can schedule the backups

Cons: The software not be suitable for very large files

Pros: That it's on the cloud and one of the plans is free. The ease of being able to sync files across multiple computers is VERY nice for small home office in which I use different computers

Cons: Free version is very limited space. Still, it is free and the paid plans are affordable and comparable with similar cloud backup programs

One of the best back up software out there
