New and Changed Features
This section describes features that are new or changed in this release.
Improved the Storage Usage Indicator Graph
The storage indicator bar automatically zooms in to show more detail when you are using less than half of a large amount of available space. This provides a more useful graphical representation of the space you are using. The bar is located at the bottom of the Backup Sets tab and File System tab of the Settings window. For more information, see Seeing How Much of Your Storage Space Is Used.
Added a Backup Set for Backing Up the System Reserved Partition
Added the System Reserved Partition backup set for users of MozyPro and MozyEnterprise that can be used to automatically back up the Windows reserved partition on a hard drive. This backup set makes it easier to back up key information on the system reserved partition. Important: Administrators backing up Microsoft Active Directory must enable this to ensure that they can properly restore Active Directory.
Added an Option to Save Configuration Data When Uninstalling
You can now save your configuration data when uninstalling the backup software. During the uninstall process, you will be asked if you want to save your data. Saving your data eliminates the need to reselect files, reselect backup sets, and recreate custom backup sets if you are reinstalling. For more information, see Uninstall Backup Software for Windows.
More Convenient Access to Files Listed in the Settings Window
You can now go directly from a file listed in the backup software to the file in Windows Explorer. Right-click the name of any file in the Backup Sets, File System, or Restore tab of the Settings window and select Show in Windows Explorer. For more information, see Automatically Select Files to Back Up on Windows and Select Files Manually in Backup Software for Windows.
More Convenient Access to Backed Up Files Online
MozyPro and MozyEnterprise users that have been given access by their administrators can access their files online through the Access files online link within the backup software. The link is at the bottom of the Welcome, Options, History, and Restore tabs in the Settings window. Users can also right-click the Mozy icon in the notification area, then select Access files online.
Added the Ability to Read Security Certificate Information from the Computer
The backup software can now read and use the list of security certificate providers from the computer settings, in addition to using the list included with the backup software. This allows an IT administrator to protect their .ckey share with a valid certificate.
Backup Progress Indicator on the Backup Software Icon in Windows 7
The Windows 7 application tray icon now includes a bar graph that indicates the progress of the current backup.
