This week we released Mac 1.4 for both MozyHome and MozyPro. The new software includes numerous stability improvements. It also provides a helpful new feature for consumers and businesses—the ability to set a policy that excludes certain types of files from being backed up.
You may wonder why anyone would want to exclude any type of file from being backed up. Why not just back up everything on the hard drive? Well, those are fair questions.
If you’re a consumer using MozyHome to back up personal files and you have a virtual machine installed on your computer, you may prefer to back up the files in the virtual machine rather than the entire virtual machine itself.
If you’re a business using MozyPro to back up your employees’ data, you may want to set a policy that excludes certain files types, like music, for certain employees. Given the economic conditions, we want you as a business to have the ability to control your costs and back up the files critical to your business.
To see the full release notes and download the new client version, check out our MozyHome and MozyPro update sections . Please note that you don’t have to download and install the new client manually, as your old client will auto-update within a week.
Finally, we are constantly looking for ways to improve Mozy, so if you have any comments or suggestions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
