In response to several questions regarding Mozy’s compatibility with Snow Leopard, we’re happy to announce that our QA team has approved Mozy for Apple’s latest and greatest software. In fact, we’ve made Snow Leopard the preferred Mozy operating system for Mac.
Our reasons for doing so are twofold:
Running the latest Mozy client on Snow Leopard provides gains in the client’s stability and speed.
The sooner we get the majority of our Mac users on Snow Leopard, the sooner our engineers can take advantage of Snow Leopard’s 64-bit architecture. What does this mean for you? An even faster, more stable, and more feature-rich Mac Mozy client.
We’ll keep you updated as more releases and updates become available. In the meantime, be safe!
It’s been pretty popular (after all, it’s hard to beat free), so we’ve decided to expand the contest to Facebook. After all, Facebook users need love (and backup) too!
So starting tomorrow, we’ll be giving away a FREE 1-year MozyHome subscription ($54.45 value!) to a randomly chosen entrant each Friday. Sounds great, right? Well it is! So here’s how it will work – in order to be considered you must:
At some point between 12:00 AM MST and 11:59 PM MST Friday, you must post the following message (or words to this effect):
I just entered Mozy Free Account Friday to win a free year of unlimited online backup! You can win too! Just become a fan of Mozy, post this message in your status, and let Mozy know you’re entered on their fan page! (for more info, check out http://bit.ly/dM9qs)
I’ll have a status message posted at 12:00 AM MST Friday on the Mozy fan page. Simply comment on that status to let me know you’re entered!
You can enter the Facebook and Twitter contests once per week. We’ll announce the winner the following Monday. Good luck, and be safe!
UPDATE: In order to verify your compliance with all the requirements should you win, I’ll be briefly friending you. Just so you know.
From your first family photo as a mother to last year’s tax return, your computers are full of irreplaceable photos, videos, and documents. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything you do and manage your own backup system. Mozy wants to let you know that we have your backup.
During the month of June, you will be able to choose a free T-shirt or onesie for signing up for an unlimited MozyHome account. If Mozy is already automatically backing up your files, you can still get a shirt or onesie by posting a message about Mozy to your blog.
Yesterday CNET named Mozy the 2009 CNET Webware 100 winner in the Infrastructure & Storage category. The Webware 100 Award honors the people’s choice in the best sites and services available today.
We thank each Mozy customer who voted for Mozy and helped us win the award. After more than 6,000 nominations for inclusion in the Webware 100, the CNET editors narrowed the nominations to 300 in each category. From this list, web users voted more than 600,000 times to select the top 10 products from each category.
The award points to Mozy’s popularity and leadership in the online backup market. We won the award because of the support of our great customers, and we thank our customers for their enthusiasm.
Recently Webware, part of the CNET community, posted finalists for the Webware 100 awards and Mozy was chosen as a finalist! We’d be honored if you took a minute to show your love and give your props for Mozy before voting closes on April 30. It’s easy to vote and no registration is required. Just go here to vote.
As mentioned in our previous blog post, we’ve had a big announcement to make, and, well, the time has come! Earlier this year, we reached 1 million Mozy customers! To celebrate this significant milestone, we decided to find our millionth customer and give them a warm Mozy "thank you."
Our search took us out to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where we met up with our very own spokesperson iJustine to surprise Nathan Kletzing, our millionth customer, with a massive Mozy prize! Here’s her video of the event-
So congrats to Nathan and his wife. Enjoy a million seconds of peace together, as you take an all-expenses-paid 7-day cruise to Mexico on us , comfortable in the knowledge that while you’re away, all your data is backed up with Mozy!
P.S. Be sure to check out our previous blog post for winners of the Guess The Prize contest!
We passed a major milestone earlier this year, and now one lucky customer will be receiving a massive Mozy prize to celebrate!
What is the prize, you ask? Well, that’s the catch. We’re not going to announce it right now. Instead, we’ll be publishing a series of clues on this blog and on our Twitter feed over the next couple of days that point towards what the massive prize is. The first three people to correctly guess what the massive prize is will receive an iPod Touch courtesy of Mozy! Just email your guesses to email@example.com . Good luck, Sherlock!
Winners: We only had one winner who got all required elements of the guess correct -Eric Nagel. Congrats! If you didn’t win, stay tuned because there will absolutely be more contests in the near future!

Back in November of 2008, we announced a video contest asking for people to show us their worst computer nightmares. Maybe it was the awesome prizes (iPods, video cameras, and a trip to Hawaii), or just people’s innate desire to tell an awesome computer horror story. Either way, we received 52 awesome videos detailing everything from a dog with an overactive bladder to a murderous Mac.
After a public round of voting to determine the finalists and an internal company vote to determine the prize winners, we are proud to announce the winners of the My Computer Nightmare Video Contest. Here’s the Grand Prize winner, Tom Anderle, with his submission Don’t Anger Clippy:
