I replaced my old PC w/ a new one. I can see my latest BU from days ago logged, but Mozy restore tells me there are "no files for this device" I also get a '# devices exceeded' msg and when I try to delete an old one using the Mozy support guidance I am never offered a 'delete' option on the computer listing screen, nor does the Account management menu offer the 'list machines' option. I am a MOZYfree user but I am willing to upgrade to solve the problem. I seriously need assistance now.
UPDATE: I'm not sure how, but I have managed to delete an old, unused computer ID. I still get a 'No files found for this folder' message when I try to restore and still need guidance. Thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
Were you able to follow Scott's instructions to find the restore options?
Please post any questions or comments.
Yes. As I said - when I attempt to restore my most recent BU to my new machine I get the "No files" message. I can see the last BU listed, I just can't get MOZY to restore it to this new PC.
Did not. See my reply to Scott. Sorry for the delay... flu. I have another suggestion to try:
To restore your files from that machine, complete the following steps:
I'll let you know.
Okay folks, I tried the last suggestion. It failed because Now there are NO backup sets listed for my old computer though they were visibly logged three days ago, and are supposed to be available to restore for a month. MOZY shows only the latest BU set for the new machine. I DID NOT delete my Newuser machine or backup sets and can't understand why my old data set has disappeared. I reloaded Open Office and thank heaven my text files are still there. I'll continue to peruse my system to see what else I have managed to retain, but I'm sure my links, bookmarks, and anything else not tied to Open Office is gone. Someone tell me I'm mistaken, please.
Update: MOZY, which I naturally downloaded to my new PC to do my intended restore, has activated it's automatic backup function for this new PC which it has labeled "Dualmonitor", and I am wondering if my old "Newuser" data is no longer associated with this new ID. Am I contending with two unique data sets, only one of which is now associated with my (unchanged) Sign-on / Password? Dualmonitor is the ONLY backup data set listed for me now.
On 1/1/18 you were backing up 1 User folder. You are currently backing up 2 User folders. I suspect that you chose to restore to your original location, and if you looked in C:\Users, you would find your old data in whatever your User folder used to be called and you'd find your new User data in whatever your User folder is currently called.
Let us know if that's the case.
You are correct! I find my Open Office data files there both under Newuser and User folders. BUT... I never got any notification that a restore had been either started or concluded. The only info I ever received when I attempted to do my restore originally was the "No files for this folder" msg. I realize I was attributing my saved data to some arcane OpenOffice function which does not exist, and I am content that my data files were restored by MOZY, thank you. I am; however, uncomfortable with "how" they were restored, and wonder if I will have future problems. You are a techy... have you ever tried everything to solve a problem one small change at a time only to be unsuccessful, and suddenly find everything working normally without your further involvement?... it's that feeling. Thanks for your help.
