Re: new computer



If are moving to a new computer and you install Mozy again, you will be asked if you want to add or replace your computer.  If you choose replace then you can finish the setup wizard and open the Mozy settings and select your files for backup and Mozy will resume backing up where it left off.  Make sure you move your data from your old computer to your new computer.


The data will not be erased from your old backup unless you delete the computer from off your account or you start backing up your new computer without the data from your old computer backing up on the new computer and you exceed 30 days (Mozy home customers have 30 days retention)


If you need to restore data then follow this link to our knowledge base with instructions on how to restore your data.


Please post any questions or comments.


Thank you,
