Started the conversion to SafeCopy

I have started my conversion to SafeCopy backup today.  In the past, I have used Mozy, but after searching online for alternatives, I found SafeCopy to be most compatible with what I wanted to protect.  SafeCopy cost me $50 a year for 200GB of storage.  You can backup from as many computers as you desire […]

Mozy status update

Its been a couple weeks now since I’ve written a Mozy backup status update.  We have progressed quite a ways in the backup process.  I have interrupted the backups almost every evening once I get home because it was saturating my upstream connection and degrading my internet performance while I was trying to use it.
