These posts are quite old and may not be relevant in today's scheme. Also, mozbackup as a bad program? ???

Wonder how they determine what's bad and what's good. ???  Mozy certainly isn't bad.
I've used it for a very long time to back up my important files. It doesn't delete ???

About Mozy: a single user experience (?) or opinion.
It's a good online backup program

MozBackup saved my life a lot of times.
It backups Firefox and Thunderbird addons and settings.
Never failed me.

The version of Mozbackup the OP listed in that thread is not even listed in the official mozbackup archive page, leading me to wonder where it was downloaded from.
The "real" mozbackup is excellent.
Windows 10,Windows Firewall,Firefox w/Adblock.
