Two things.

I took a look at Mozy as an additional service. Googled reviews and found that the backup part works fine, but the restore was another issue.

Secondly, my primary backup approach is images with Shadow Protect.
I test restore every image I make.

If you haven't tested the full restore of any of your backup strategies, then you don't have a backup strategy.

I will do a test restore with mozy, good idea.

For trueimage, there is a verification phase at the end but you have to enable it. Takes time but I always use it. I've restored from trueimage many times and it's never let me down. I especially recommend the latest version, it's much better.

I used to use Acronis up thru version 9. The linux CD's never worked for me and that was a pain. Switched to ShadowProtect and have never looked back. Have even ended up doing some private testing for them.

I never use the verify function. What I do is image from the recovery environment. Then I mount the image and extract a large file from the image to the desktop. If successful I assume the image is good, and restore it. The restore is my verify.

Well Mozy is stuck at 42% of my 1.2 gig backup. If it can't handle 1.2gig I don't have much confidence for sending my entire drive.

it should timeout or something but no, 42% all night.

I will retry and if that fails then sign up for memopal 150gig.

This is the same type of crap that happened with me, over and over.

I use Acronis to image to a USB drive, and Memopal for revisioning/snapshots.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

It's like getting stopped out. You look for a re-entry and hope for a runner!

Hi Mike

Have you tested restore on Memopal.

Pete

Yes. Using their "live drive" (webdav via Explorer) is slow but works. Using their web interface is ok and easier for single files and you can select any revision from any point in time.

I'm really only interested in revisionining via Memopal and for an absolute disaster recovery method.

Hi Mike

You ought to take a look at AJCSoftware's Active Backup. You can specify, what files, where they are, how many revisions to keep, and it backups them up locally when ever you close or save. Recovery is as fast as a copy in Explorer. I've been using it for years to cover my doc xls, etc type of files.
