Mozy sent an email out today informing of policy changes. Mozy was once the best (in my opinion) solution for a photographer to backup their work, offsite and in ‘the cloud”. It was affordable, at $5 a month. Now, Mozy wants to charge $6 for 50GB of space. Yea, that could be one PSD file. Sorry Mozy, but you lost a customer. I will be leaving my Mozy account active until I replace it with another offsite backup solution. For the record, I like to have two forms of offsite backup at minimum.
Dear Scott Wyden Kivowitz,
Thanks for being a valued Mozy subscriber. For the first time since 2006, we’re adjusting the price of our MozyHome service and wanted to give you a heads up. As part of this change, we’re replacing our MozyHome Unlimited backup plan and introducing the following tiered storage plans:
50 GB for $5.99 per month (includes backup for 1 computer)
125 GB for $9.99 per month (includes backup for up to 3 computers)
You may add additional computers (up to 5 in total) or 20 GB increments of storage to either of the plans, each for a monthly cost of $2.00.
While this policy takes effect for new MozyHome customers starting today, your MozyHome Unlimited subscription is still valid for the duration of your current 2 year term. In order to ensure uninterrupted service, you’ll need to select a new renewal plan.
As the leader in online backup, we’re committed to continually providing the highest levels of service and protection that you’ve come to expect from us as well as delivering those innovations you’ve been asking for. For more information on the factors that led to this change, please read my note or visit our FAQ.
Bye Mozy, you were once great.
