There are other plans for more data and for businesses that cost per month.

How It Works

1. Sign up for an account.

Create a MozyHome user account which will allow you to download MozyHome software. Its quick, easy and our step-by-step instructions will guide you through the process.

2. Download and install software.
MozyHome downloads in just seconds, and the installation is simple and fast.

3. Select files to be backed up.
Simply check the boxes next to the backup sets, or types of files you want to back up, and MozyHome does the rest. In addition to selecting files by backup sets, you also have the option of selecting specific files and directories.

Alternatives to MozyHome
  1. Burn a new CD or DVD every Sunday night and store it at your brother-in-law's office.
  2. Pay R200/year for an online backup service that uses old, mediocre software.
  3. Buy a R900 external hard drive and hope your office doesn't burn down.
  4. Do nothing and don't worry about backup. (We suggest closing your eyes, plugging your ears and repeating "I'm in my happy place, I'm in my happy place.")
  5. Run a cron job of rsync, gzip and mcrypt piped over ssh to your friend's server over his DSL line.
Of course, we think MozyHome is the best and easiest solution to the backup problem! Get MozyHome!

  1. Data back ups is a savior. You should not lose your hard earned work just because you forgot to back up.
