Mozy Online Backup Mozy Online Backup

In recent years our family photos, music and documents have quickly migrated from the shelves in our homes and offices to be stuffed onto the hard drives of our computers. How safe are these irreplaceable photos and business documents from a hard drive crash, natural disaster or computer virus?

Backing up our computers has become a crucial part of our daily lives; ask anyone who has gone through a catastrophic computer crash and didn't have a recent backup. Imagine photos of loved ones, a thesis that represents countless hours of work, the accounting database containing years of business transactions gone.

There are many different backup methods available like external hard drives, writable DVDs and flash drives. These are certainly worthwhile ways to backup your computer. However, they are still susceptible to fire, flooding, theft, power surges, data corruption and failure.

Online backup with Mozy provides the peace of mind that your important files are automatically backed up to a secure offsite location. In the event that you experience data loss, your files are safe and sound waiting for you to retrieve them.

The Mozy software is easy to install and use. It creates an automatic backup schedule for the common file locations (like My Documents). You can also tailor Mozy to your specific needs with custom backup settings, schedules and performance options. Mozy can also take care of backups to an external hard drive or flash drive via the local backup feature.

Mozy offers unlimited storage space with plans starting at $4.95 a month, as well as a free 2GB trial to get you started. Sign up today!

The Pin to Taskbar feature in Windows 7 allows users to place program icons as buttons on the taskbar for easy one click program access and organization.

To pin a program to the taskbar, find the program icon either on the desktop or on the start menu. Right click the program icon and then left click "Pin to Taskbar". This will place the icon for that program prominently on the taskbar.
