This guy speaks way too fast, which is very hard to understand anyway because of his accent. No way can I keep up with what he is saying, and i need help!



If you are trying to collect your log files for Mozy support, hold down the Option key (Alt, if you have a Windows based keyboard) and then click on the Mozy icon in the menu bar. From there, you can now select "Collect log files for Mozy Support". Does this answer your question?



I lost my files and reloaded them with Mozy,but I don't see them under My Documents. Is there something else I need to do?Mozy tells me lthe download is complete. Is there a help line/online I can go to? Their phone number says click on 'need help', but I don't see it. n
