Mozy Original Backups are Complete

The original Mozy backups are complete!

To review:

  1. I had Carbonite first and went through the long original backup. But Carbonite did not permit External Drives, so I had to consider other options.
  2. I switched to Mozy and started to backup my laptop and external drive. Most of the data was on the external drive.
  3. I started the backups on my laptop before I got my new desktop. When I set up the desktop, I checked with Mozy and had to start over, but Mozy recognized the existing backups so all was not lost.
  4. The desktop is much faster, so I gave Mozy more cycles and it finished quickly.

So now the original backups are complete, the incremental schedule is set, and all is well.

I will test the restore later this week.
