Freebie Friday – Mozy

A huge obstacle that is often faced in rural ministry is the lack of funds to buy tools and resources. To help combat this problem the Rural Ministry Blog has Freebie Friday! Every Friday we will take a look at a free resource that could benefit anyone involved with rural ministry.

Ever had your computer crash? If you’ve used computers for any length of time the answer, of course, is yes. I’ve discovered that when it comes to computer crashes Murphy’s Law rules – your crash will happen at the most inopportune time. Sometimes I’ve been able to recover from crashes pretty easily, other times the crash caused me to lose some very important files. I know the importance of making backups, but didn’t always take the time to do it. Now, however, I use Mozy. Mozy is a program that you install on your computer that automatically backs up your files for you. Documents, pictures, music, and videos are all backed up every night automatically. If something happens to your computer, all you need to do is log in to your Mozy account and you can either download the missing files from their website, or for a small fee you can have them send you your files on CD. The best thing about Mozy is that you get 2GB of backup absolutely free! If you need more than 2GB it’s only $5.99 per month for unlimited backup, which in my opinion is a no brainer. I’ve found Mozy to be easy to use and very reliable, although depending on how much data you have the initial backup can take a long time.
