MozyHome for Mac Hits 1.0
Thursday, May 1, 2008
Posted by: Glenn

Mozy today announced the release of MozyHome for Mac 1.0, an online backup service for Mac users. The service offers 2GB of backup for free or unlimited backup for $4.95 a month. This allows Mac users to protect all of their computer files, including photos, music, videos and financial documents from data loss in the event of a hard drive crash, accidental deletion, natural disaster or theft.

All files are encrypted with 448-bit Blowfish encryption and the encrypted files are transferred via a 128-bit SSL connection during the backup process for extra security. After the initial backup, Mozy only backs up incremental changes to files and folders, meaning subsequent backups run extremely fast. In addition to the most recent backup, Mozy keeps 30 days worth of file versions as well. In the event of data loss, files may be recovered via the Mozy client software, downloaded from the Mozy website, or by ordering the files on a set of DVDs from Mozy.

I've been using Mozy since the first beta was released for Mac users in April of 2007, and it's worked out well for me. I would suggest that you give it a try.

MozyHome for Mac 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

We use MozyPro at work. I've never had to recover any data though, so I can't really comment on how well it works. The first backup will take quite awhile since it encrypts everything before sending. $60 a year for unlimited backup sounds interesting, but Time Machine is free with Leopard. Mozy would be a good solution if you live in an apartment/dorm, or are concerned in general about your system and external drives being stolen or lost in a fire.

I use the free plan to backup my important stuff. It works pretty good.

My first backup is going super slow, but it's not slowing me down otherwise. I kinda wish that Apple offered 2GB of iDisk space for free. I would like to compare the two, but my .Mac trial is long gone.

I tried it but it's just too slow/I have too much cr&p I want to backup. Maybe if I get a faster connection [fiber etc].

Interesting...I may look into it.
