Mozy has been an integral part of my disaster recovery plan for years; I already make periodic disc image backups. If a disc should fail, my plan is (or was) to restore the most recent image, then restore just my Mozy files that are more recent than that.
Although this sounds simple and logical to me, it turns out that with Mozy, this is not possible. Currently, I can either specify a given file, or else download all 125GB (or request it all on disc) - those are my two choices.
This makes Mozy virtually useless to me as part of a comprehensive backup strategy. It seems like a trivial problem to solve (I am a software/database engineer by trade); simply give me a list of all files of mine that are newer than a certain date. Without this enhancement, I am forced to start searching for an alternative to Mozy.
