Files I am am selecting are not being saved

I very recently got a new computer and one of the 1st things I did was to download Mozy Home & Sync.

I checked on the Mozy Home page and my new machine was showing.

I then moved to settings as I have done many times over the years of using Mozy.

I selected the files that I wanted saving which showed as 124GB and hit the OK button.

I then ran a manual backup and got the result as being successful but only showed 6.7GB backed up.

I went back into setting to find that the files I had selected were no longer selected but other files that I hadn't chosen were.

I retried the process numerous time but on each occasion I got the same result.

 

I am running Win 10 1709

i7700 4.2 GHZ

 

I would appreciate some help with small but far reaching problem.

@Pete_Lawrence

 

It sounds like there is something impeding the full feature set of Mozy from functioning. Typically this points to antivirus. Let me walk you through some steps to try:

 

  1. Add antivirus exclusions to your current antivirus application: http://mozy.com/product/download/backup/mozyhome
  2. Reboot your machine
  3. Try adding files and click "OK" after validating your selection
  4. Click on "Start Backup"
  5. After a successful backup, let us know if your settings have sticked
  6. If the problem persists, consider uninstalling MozyHome and reinstalling here: http://mozy.com/product/download/backup/mozyhome
  7. Try again

Let us know what you find. If that fails, we may have to generate a case for you and reach out. But kindly respond with the results from the checklist above.

I agree with Scott, it sounds like antivirus might be interfering with Mozy. 

 

Though your initial post was about six days ago, I do see one of the two computers on your account is backing up, and the other computer that isn't backing up only reports one attempt to backup on 10/27/17 08:54 am MST (UTC−07).

 

Please post any questions or comments.

 


Thank you,

Were you able to add exclusions to your antivirus? 

 

We haven't heard from you since you initial post 8 days ago.  Please update this thread and mark the appropriate post as a resolution.
