How to enable network share support in MozyHome and MozyPro Desktop Edition

Update: 28th Feb 2010 - Due to the reported problems people have been having with the existing approach below, I have created the following program for MozyHome & MozyPro. It runs in the system tray and checks various Mozy registry keys (not just the one below), and if they have been changed by Mozy, it resets them back to the values that allow Mozy to backup and restore from the network.


Outlook will not open or save attached pictures (.jpeg or .jpg)

We have come across a couple of instances recently where emailed pictures (.jpg and .jpeg) can not be opened in Outlook and just present the recipient with a white box with a red cross and the message that a preview could not be generated. The same result is given when the attachment is saved to the desktop (or other folder) and attempted to be viewed.  If the email is accessed via webmail (OWA) the email and picture are displayed without a problem.

Website backup script

The attached zip contains a very simple script that uses WinSCP , FI and 7-Zip to backup a website via FTP to the local machine.  It first downloads the entire site to the directory it was run from, 7-Zips it to the output directory, deletes the temporary copy and then checks the output directory for backups older than 30 days and deletes them.
