New Mozy Error

If you have read my earlier posts you will know I am a big fan of Mozy. I think it is a great idea and I have an actual account (not just the free ones). My problem is that I am more than a month out of sync with Mozy because of stupid errors.

The latest error is – DB_ERROR[1]: no such table: restores

To find out what errors are causing your mozy to wander off in the wrong direction check \program files\mozyhome\data there is a file in there called mozy – open it in textpad and see what this little program has been up to.
I am at my wits end now and am thinking of canning the whole approach entirely. After multiple uninstalls and reinstalls it won’t start the mozy service now “cannot find the file specified” when I try and start it.

For the record I don’t mind this kind of additional effort when getting FreeNAS to work or building a Gentoo box. I do mind it when it is my backup solution and my data is at risk because it fails to function. Another continuing concern is what all these threats of charging for bandwidth used will do to cloud based computing. I don’t think the model can sustain the ISPs siphoning off revenue. Just my two cents.
