Mozy Backup Doesn't Work

I've been a Mozy Home Unlimited Backup user for over 1 year and have had no problems until now, but then again I've not tried to restore a large file until now. I attempted restore my outlook.pst file which is 2.8GB

I was unable to do it from the web or from the progam interface on my computer. The problem has now been bumped to 3rd level Tech support and its beedn over 4 days without resolution.

If you have big files to backup and you actually want to be able to restore them...you should probably look at a different service. I am.

There is more going on here.

2GB PST files were problematic for years and continue to be problems for many.

There is also issues in restoring such if you have booted up and run Outlook BEFORE you try to restore. All the above are sadly more a MS issue than a backup restore issue but it pays to know about the issues.
