Back up to HD

How do i back up to an external hard drive.  I have one that shows in windows. 


Re: Back up to HD



Backing up to an external drive, so long as it's assigned a letter is fairly easy. Simply:


- Open Mozy Settings

- Click on Mozy 2x Protect

- Checkmark Enable 2x Protect

- Choose the Destination drive

- Click OK

- Start a backup


At which point the drive you selected will make a copy of your backup onto the external drive. Alternatively...


- If you want to backup the external drive, simply go to Mozy Settings

- Click on File System

- Select contents or the entire drive

- Click OK

- Start a backup


Let me know if this helps!
