Can I back up a external hard drive with mozy??

It's WAY to hard to back up to an external HDD. I've been fighting it for years. Sometimes i succeed; sometimes (like now) not. We don't need work arounds or troubleshooting. We need an easy-to-use interface.

@drgalvin - Did you still need help with your external backup?

Looks like the issue was resolved in a case. Should you have any suggestions about improving the local backup/2xProtect feature in the Mozy software, feel free to leave it in the comments below. Your feedback is much appreciated!

 

Thank you for using the Mozy forum!
