Re: How to delete files from Mozy

Hi npereira,


Do you want to decrease the amount of files selected for backup in order to reduce your quota?


If you un-select files from your backup set or file system set within the settings window of the client this

will mark the files for deletion and reduce your quota that is being used.


Let me know if you need further assistance

Re: How to delete files from Mozy

I deselected from the backup set the file (music) that I want to stop mozy backup a couple of days ago but mozy continues to back up the file.  I need this allocated space for a new computer I have set up.


I deselected by unchecking the backup set file.  Is the correct thing to do is just right click the set and remove?
