Latest from the Blog: Thinking About Signing Up for MozyPro? Are you a new customer looking to protect your business data? Or maybe you're a MozyHome user who needs to make sure their work-related documents are protected and are thinking of upgrading to MozyPro? See why you should and how to do it in today's post.
So people have been complaining about and suggesting that the lack of e-mail notices for no backups in x number of days for Mozy Home is something that needs changed. Mozy keeps suggesting that people pay the extortion fees for Mozy Pro but they clearly don't realize that for $5/mo ANYONE can get an Office 365 Business Essentials account that gives you 1TB of storage via One Drive for Business. Granted, it doesn't give you notices either, but hey, if there are no notices then why pay for Mozy when you can have 8x the storage for FAR LESS $???
Come on Mozy, stop being so arrogant. Stop telling users to upgrade to the way overpriced Pro version. Since I can't get the 125GB I need in Pro, the 250GB version is $855/year compared to my 3 computers for $120/year with Mozy Home. Mozy is just way too proud (and arrogant pride never bodes well for long term success of a company, just ask IBM's PC business) and overcharged and deliberately keeps basic features from Home users.
Needless to say, I'm very unlikely to renew my Mozy services and I'm more than happy to share my experiences with friends and family.
