Start a backup remotely

Is there a way to start a backup remotely instead of having the user open the Mozy icon and click the Start Backup button?

Re: Start a backup remotely

Not built in, no, but if you can run a cmd command remotely you can start it that way.


%Install_path_for_mozy%\mozy[pro]backup.exe /backup

Re: Start a backup remotely



Just to clarify.  Is this still a valid command and does it apply to Mozy Pro?  In the command its self it appears that it does but just wanting to verify.
