Turn off status popup on login?

Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 bit

Mozy Home 2.32.4.532

 

With the latest update, Mozy has started displaying the Status dialog window on login. 

 

I'm not really interested (I trust Mozy to be working), and it's caused my wife, who's militantly non-technical, some consternation when she logs in.

 

Looking through the options, I don't see any way to turn this new "feature" off.

 

Any help?

Re: Turn off status popup on login?

If you right click on the Mozy Icon on the bottom right of the screen, you can go to Settings->More Settings, then to the Options Tab. Once there go to Advanced, and un-check 'show status when a backup completes'. That should solve the issue!

Re: Turn off status popup on login?

That option's not set. Pretty sure it never has been. I've gone through the entire set of selectable options and none of them seem to have any relation to this.

 

I have two Windows 7 systems down here, and they both do the same thing.

 

Never happened before the latest update, which was offered to the two machines a few days apart, over the past week if I remember correctly.

 

Certainly not an end-of-the-world problem, and I showed my wife how to dismiss the popup, so that part's been solved.Smiley Happy

You may want to try turning off the Mozy windows status notification. This displays when Mozy starts a backup and if UAC is set too high you will always see the Mozy status window along with the notification.  You can click Customize after clicking the triangle shaped system tray popup (near the time) and set  Mozy Status to "Only show icon". Be warned though that this will disable the Windows Mozy backup notification so you will want to periodically click the Mozy icon and inspect your backup history to ensure things are moving along as expected. If you experience any issues, don't hesitate to contact us here.

Re: Turn off status popup on login?

Well, I think I've accidentally turned a molehill into a mountain here.

 

I mentioned the single appearance of the Mozy status at login time simply because it was something that started happening after a recent update.

 

It's not really a problem for me; it was just something I thought somebody would like to know about.

 

The software works, and has always worked. I use it for off-site backup of the few things I keep on my PC that I actually care about and it does that job perfectly.

 

So, can we please put this to bed, so you guys can get back to doing more important stuff?
