MotherBoard crashed,Can I recover files to new computer? thanks

My Mother Board crashed, So I bought a new notebook. I used the free version of Mozy and I wanted to know if I can recover any files to my new computer and if so what is the best safest way to do it. Thanks Micool

@micool

 

Yes this should be possible. You can restore files at:

 

- https://secure.mozy.com

- Once you log in, you should land at Account Pages or Devices and Synced

- If at Account Pages, click on Restore Files to the right of the machine name

- If at Devices and Synced, click on Devices, then checkmark to the left of the machine name

- Click on "Restore All Files"

- If 3 GB or less, you can download the files immediately to the computer in question

- If above, follow the Recommended method to download the Restore Manager and install it

- Then download the .mzd file and then open it with Restore Manager

- Don't choose Restore to original location as it puts it in C:\Users and it won't technically be the same computer

- Instead, choose a custom location/folder

 

Let me know if this helps!

Re: MotherBoard crashed,Can I recover files to new computer? thanks

Hello all;

  First I want to thank you for your help, I did do something and did review my photo's but still trying to figure this all out.  I think I need more memory so I guess I need a paid subscription. I'm not real computer savvy so it takes me a while to get up tom speed. Expect more questions soon.

 

 

                                      Thanks Again

                                            Mike
