How to add new computer to computer list

 I added a 2nd computer to my account and want to do a restore of my files to the new computer, but cannot figure out how to add the second computer to the list - only the old one shows up. Articles re restoring to a new computer just say to click on the computer from the list - but I can't get it on the list!!! Help!

Re: How to add new computer to computer list

@amghislop   Are you looking to replace the computer on the account, or add the new computer to the account so both computers can be backed up?

 

If you are looking to restore your files from the old computer to the new computer, you would perform the restore steps while on the new computer.  You would select the old computer name since that is where the files are currently associated.  As per http://support.mozy.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/Create-Web-Restore-MozyHome

 

After your files have downloaded to the new computer, then you can install Mozy and either replace the computer on the account or add it to the account.  As per http://support.mozy.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/MozyHome-How-do-I-replace-a-computer-on-my-account or http://support.mozy.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/How-do-I-install-Mozy
