How do I remove my old computer from my Mozy list?

I changed computers last winter. The old computer still shows on my Mozy list and does not need to be backed up. It is never used. But it contains many of the photos and files I have on the new computer, and I don't want to lose those if they are deleted when the old computer is removed from the Mozy list. Should I remove the old computer from the Mozy list and how do I do this?

Login into your account of mozy at https://secure.mozy.com/account then go to "My comupters there" at https://secure.mozy.com/account/machines and click "Delete" next to a computer you want to remove.

Re: How do I remove my old computer from my Mozy list?

This doesn't answer my question about the security of all the files which are now on both the old and the new computer. If I delete the backup from the old computer in my list (this backup does not take place any longer), does it also delete my files on the new computer?

No, why would it? It only deleteds computer with its files which you select to delete

Re: How do I remove my old computer from my Mozy list?

When I try to delete an unused computer it is requesting a password from that computer which I no longer know. I am not interested in saving what is in there but how do I delete the machine if I don't know the password?

If you are talking about a MozyHome account, then the password being asked for is the same password that you used to log into to Mozy . In other words, they just want you to repeat the account password.
