MozyHome is unable to successfully back up. Click the "start backup" button to try again.
I've clicked the "start backup" button a dozen times. I still get the same results. What would Einstein say?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Does anything happen when you try starting a backup? Another-words does it try and fail, or does nothing happen? Is the button grayed out? Let us know and we'll be happy to help look into this!
"No successful backups for 7 days.
Files backed up 14988 (3.2GB).
Files awaiting backup 1."
It appears to be backing up. "Start backup" button is not grayed out.
I took a look at your account here and I show that you're receiving a ClientError3 message on your recent backup attempts. This indicates that Mozy is having a hard time connecting securely to the servers and can be caused by a number of things. Please follow the steps in the Knowledge Base Article regarding a ClientError3 to begin troubleshooting this error.
Please let us know how that goes, and if you have any further questions or concerns.
PLEASE DO NOT DELETE THIS MESSAGE. DELETE MY OTHER MESSAGE IF YOU NEED TO.
GIVEN MOZYHOME'S MESSAGE, TO WIT: "NO SUCCESSFUL BACKUPS FOR 8 DAYS. FILES BACKED UP 13153 (2.8GB). FILES AWAITING BACKUP 1. MOZYHOME IS UNABLE TO SUCCESSFULLY BACK UP. CLICK THE STARTUP BUTTON TO TRY AGAIN."
I THINK THE PROBLEM MAY BE A CORRUPT FILE SINCE ONLY 1 FILES IS AWAITING BACKUP.
1. TIME ZONE HASN'T CHANGED. PROBLEM STARTED 8 DAYS AGO.
2. DO I NEED TO KEEP MY SECURITY SOFTWARE OFF AT ALL TIME SO THAT MOZY CAN BACKUP?
3. SEE MY NOTES BELOW.
CAN YOU DETERMINE WHAT'S WRONG AT YOUR END????
I'm sorry this is frustrating. A clienterror3 usually means that there is problem with your computer making a secure connection with our servers, so if a single file is not backing up then go to step 5.(The step you mentioned that you didn't get to yet)
To check your time zone settings open Windows Control Panel and look for "Date and Time" and make sure your time and time zone is set correctly.
To check if the port 443 is missing the locate the folder "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\" and open the "services" file with note pad and look for the following lines:
https 443/tcp MCom #HTTP over TLS/SSL
https 443/udp MCom #HTTP over TLS/SSL
If you find these lines don't exist in the file then add them and save the file.
Step 5 is:
If you are on a Windows client:
Open Mozy Settings, then go to the history tab. Click on one of the dates showing the error, and down below it will populate info about the backup. Now click on the "other details" column header down below. This will sort the info so that anything with "more details" is all together (you may need to scroll down to see this). This will show you if there are any potentially offending files that, due to either size or corruption of file, might be causing the MozyClientError3. Look for details like "Backup Interrupted," and see if you can determine something about why the file(s) could have kept you from a 100 % successful backup.
By sorting "other details" you can locate the offending file (possibly a corrupt file) and where it's located in the backup so you can either un-check it from the backup selection, delete the file from your computer, or move the file out of a folder that's backing up.
This last option is most likely the case here since there is one file not backing up.
Please post any other questions or comments.
Date is okay.
