MozyPro - Restoring files on another computer

In the event of disaster or data loss, you can use MozyPro to easily restore your backup to another computer. You can also migrate your backup from one computer to another, as well as transfer files from an old computer to a new computer. To switch to a new computer using your MozyPro account, you must replace your existing computer.

Note: Once you change computers on your existing account, you will no longer be able to perform backups on the replaced computer, but you will still be able to restore files from that computer for a period of 30 days.
Important: You cannot perform this procedure if your new computer has a different platform (Windows versus Mac) from the computer you are replacing.

To replace a computer:

  1.  Download and start installing the latest version of MozyPro on the replacement computer. For instructions on downloading and installing the latest client, see Installing MozyPro.
  2.  When prompted during the install, log in to MozyPro using your email and password. MozyPro automatically recognizes that you are using a different computer and starts the Replace Machine wizard.
  3.  Enter your password, then click Next. A dialog appears asking you to confirm the replacement.
  4.  Click Yes to proceed with the replacement. The Setup Wizard contines with setting up your computer.
