Mozy documentation is also available in:
When restoring files, allow the user to choose whether existing files are:Overwritten no matter what,Overwritten only if the one that already exists is older,Added as a new file with a digit added after it.Currently, existing files are always overwritten without any warning. That is NOT user friendly.Tech support said currently the only solution is to restore files to a second location and manually merge them.That is a very poor, inefficient solution.

I wanted to reach out to you for a little further clarification and understanding on your idea. As it stands right now, both the web restore and the in-client restores allow you to choose whether or not to overwrite the file, it does not overwrite by default.
With the Web Restore, if you check the box for Overwrite existing files it will choose to overwrite any files that are the same. If you do not check that box, it will rename the files (by adding a character) so that both the old and new are saved.
In the In-Client Restore, you have radial buttons at the bottom where you can select either Overwrite existing files or Rename copy if original file exists. Whichever you select there is what will occur when you run the restore.
As for your request, do those not fit your needs or just not know about them? Or are you just hoping for some added functionality? We'd love a little clarification to know where to better point your recommendation.
Thanks so much!

Definitely need more information since as @angelag demonstrated, there is no 'Overwrite' option enabled by default.

I spent time clarifying an answer yesterday, but it was a waste of time because of a bug in your website. Here is the bug:
My answer disappeared into the bit bucket. It should have been conserved after login.

I tried it again just now. This time a new error occurred. When I clicked “Return to my original page”, it displayed the community page. My entry was gone.
Please wait a few seconds and try again
This time the message dated **Removed**:02 PM was posted.
Why did the error occur?
Anyway, what I was trying to post yesterday was this:
My recommendation is to split the Overwrite option into two options:
Also, it would be great if the font size of the choices were a little larger.
