Client Update: Mac 1.7

We’re proud to announce the maintenance release of Mozy for Mac 1.7! Here are a few highlights from this latest release:

  • New and more intuitive default backup sets
  • Improved memory usage during backup preparation
  • Faster progress and better reporting when doing initial file scans
  • Improved speed in analyzing certain backup sets
  • Various stability improvements

To see the full release notes and download the new client version, check out our update sections for MozyHome and MozyPro. Please note that you don’t have to download and install the new client manually, as your old client will auto-update.

Finally, we are constantly looking for ways to improve Mozy, so if you have any comments or suggestions, please email us at!

    Wow, launching the MozyHome application now takes 5-10 seconds, instead of a painful 3-5 minute wait! This is awesome!

    Too bad the new version doesn’t offer the possibility to throttle internet connection to anything higher than 1 Mbit/s.
    I have a 4 Mbit/s upstream, and I prefer to throttle Mozy to 2.5 Mbit/s. Unfortunately this is not possible with current versions.

    Mine just updated, however I see the decrypt option is still not available, thus I’m still unable to restore from the web…

  • Mark Suman

    @Jeffrey – Thanks for the feedback. We made that change back with our 1.4 release. We’ll keep this in mind for future releases.

    @Dan – The decrypt option is still available, the menu option for it just got moved. Go to the Mozy menu and click “Open MozyHome…”. When it launches, go to the Window menu and click “Decrypt Files…”

    My Mozy still does not seem to auto-update itself, and choosing “Check For Updates” from the menu tells me I already have the latest version. I’ve reported this with other versions, and the only way I can get the latest and greatest is to manually download myself.

    I’ve uninstalled and re-installed in case that was the issue. Is there any preference or log I can check to rectify this situation? Auto-update has never worked for me…since I first joined Mozy under the 1.5 versions up until now. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Nice pice of software, however I still have a wish list, any movement on Mozy Home OS X and proxy’s in particular proxy auth?

  • Paul Cooper

    With these latest releases of Mozy is it possible for me to backup the data I have on my home NAS drive, or is that still a limitation of Mozy?
