Re: error 16 message, reset backups from program file and backup sets, now backing up redundantly

@rushhome

 

Mozy may appear as if each file is being backed up.  However, if the file has previously been backed up, and remains unchanged, Mozy will not need to back up that file again.  Mozy must check all files selected for backup to see if they have been backed up, but if they have, Mozy will skip backing up an exact copy of a file it has already backed up.

 

Therefore, your continued backups shouldn't take nearly as long as an initial backup.  

 

Thank You,

The backups now show backup successful, but 0 bytes backed up.
