Has anyone used Mozy backup Service? I have just heard about it through Ancestry. I would appreciate feed back on Back up services. Thanks, Sondra

It works very nicely. Initial backup is long, depending on how many files you are saving. After that, the service works in the background. a small "m" appears in the upper right portion of your screen, where you can access information on your backups and further configure what gets stored.

I have been using the free version (2 GB) and have had no problems. I tried a restore just to make sure it worked and that was very easy. You can configure it to back up periodically or at a fixed time. I have mine back up every night at 1 am. You do need to check the backup history (from the m menu item) to make sure it's not having problems. I find it very easy to use. It's still beta and it doesn't have all of the features that the Windows version has, but it has been very useable and stable. I'm seriously considering paying for the unlimited plan.
