Cannot Login due to "Error"

 

I just downloaded Mozy on my new computer.

 

I deleted my old computer from my account, and just want to start backing up on my new computer. 

 

After installing the software on my new computer, when I try to log in (on my computer), it says "Error"

 

Extra information: 

I have a free account. I have not used Mozy for a while -- did they freeze my account? 

 

Thanks.

Re: Cannot Login due to "Error"

Hi @af it appears that you were able to successfully back up this new computer. But @username_issues is correct, if you leave your free account inactive for some time it will automatically close.

Re: Cannot Login due to "Error"

Hi @Tyler_W@username_issues

 

Thank you both for replying. 

 

I kept getting the error message, and then a couple hours later, while doing unrelated things on my computer, a window popped up and said 'please configure Mozy settings' and it worked fine. Now it's working great.

 

Thanks!
