Backups failing with ConnectionError3

My backups, which run after 1am daily, have been working with no problem through Sept 2.

 

Backup on Sept 3 (early morning) failed with ConnectionError3. I tried a manual backup that evening, which also failed. Backup early this morning, Sept 4 had ConnectionError3 as well.

 

Help!

 

Thanks.

Re: Backups failing with ConnectionError3

I am having the exact same problem. Worked perfectly on 9/2 (scheduled at 2:30 am) until 9/3. I cannot get a manual backup to work and the one scheduled for 9/4 did not work.

 

I have already tried reinstalling Mozy and still no go.

Re: Backups failing with ConnectionError3

Great to know that i'm not the only one having an issue. Thanks for corroborating it, birdmom. 

 

Hopefully the Mozy experts will be able to triangulate the issue from these two reports.

Re: Backups failing with ConnectionError3

I'm having exactly the same problem. In addition, when I look for my files online it searches and searches but never finds anything.

Re: Backups failing with ConnectionError3

Thank you for this report! We've been seeing lots of people with the issue. My plan is to make a case for each of you, and have our engineers look at the over-arching problem.

Re: Backups failing with ConnectionError3

I have no idea what changed, but the 2:30 am scheduled back-up actually worked! I didn't do anything different on my end.

Re: Backups failing with ConnectionError3

Yes, mine worked as well. Can we get confirmation from the Mozy team that something was corrected on the cloud storage side to correct this so that we can mark this issue as resolved?

Re: Backups failing with ConnectionError3

As of 9/5 at 10:22am mine worked when I tried a manual backup. Also, my web access to my files now works.

 

Whatever you did, thanks.
