    I installed MOZY FREE Backup software on my computer by following their instructions.
    After installation, my computer kept freezing and then I got the Windows Blue Screen of Death!
    Basically, MOZY FREE Backup CRASHED my computer.[SIZE=+0] [/SIZE]I could not even do a system restore. I had to restore my computer from scratch. I am still in the process of putting back all my programs and files, this is very time consuming.

    Furthermore, after I backed up my files, I could not retrieve them using another computer. It kept telling me that I had to register and install MOZY Backup, it just would not retrieve my previous registration.
    I am still not able to retrieve my files.[SIZE=+0] [/SIZE]Luckily, I kept local backups on some DVD's.[SIZE=+0] [/SIZE]MOZY may be free, but there is always a catch.[SIZE=+0] [/SIZE]Please be aware Mozy free backup could crash your computer?
    [SIZE=+0] [/SIZE]Maybe that's how they get you; then they tell you have to purchase one of their plans???
    FYI:[SIZE=+0] [/SIZE]I have 2GB of RAM and a 2.0 GHz AMD processor and it still CRASHED it!

    Does not look like an Ad and probably a bad review of Mozy.
