restore challenges

Do I have to stay logged in on Mozy during a restore to a new computer? My Mozy session keeps timing out, and I don't know if that is prolonging the restore process, which appears slated to take 3 days!

Re: restore challenges

Hi. It looks like your question didn't get answered by one of our community members. Let me get a Mozy Support agent to hop in and assist you. I don't think you need to stay logged in. Depending on file size and connection speed it could legitimately take that long to download. But let me get an agent that can tell you for sure.

Re: restore challenges

I already went ahead and did that. You don't have to stay logged in bits still interminably slow. Thanks

Re: restore challenges

@Krayon    While you don't need to be logged into the Mozy website, you do need to be logged into the computer, and the computer's sleep settings need to be disabled.  Perhaps that is delaying the completion of the restore.
