Re: Folder organization

Hi @philcamp1762,

 

Mozy actually by default keeps the exact same folder structure/organization as your machine, so you don't even have to do anything. Just make sure you select your files for backup and back them up. Then when you go to restore, you'll see the exact same folder paths and structure as your machine had.

 

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Re: Folder organization

actually that's not exactly true... with Windows 10 it obliges you to save your files on One Drive, even when I created a shortcut for my files at This PC/Documents/My Documents the backup on Mozy makes me jump through many steps to get to my files on One Drive.

Re: Folder organization

Hi @philcamp1762,

 

Programs like Office 365 (and possibly other Microsoft programs) do default to One Drive as the save location, but they do not require it to be the save location. You can change that and choose any location on your hard drive to save the files to. You an also download the files from One Drive back to the actual hard drive if you'd like.

 

One Drive is a sort of backup/sharing folder that is stored offsite, and for that reason Mozy does not support backing up files from that folder. Mozy only supports backing up files from the actual hard drive on the machine and not from any offsite or other backup programs/folders. You'll want to save the files you want backed to the actual hard drive, and select it from that location in Mozy to backup properly and keep the appropriate file structure.
