If you've ever logged into the Mozy Support page, you probably have noticed that there are a LOT of options. Let's try and simplify things and teach you what each one does, so you can better utilize the Mozy Support page in the future.
Navigating the Mozy Support Page
When you first access support.mozy.com the screen above is what you'll be presented with. Here's a run down of what your navigation options are from there, and why you'd need each one. Let's start at the top and work our way down.

If you want a jump-start on that information, make sure to take a look at last week's webinar, in which Niall went over some of the basic things you need to know about checking your backups, troubleshooting common issues, and accessing Support.
