    MOZ Backup (for backing up Thunderbird eMails) ?


    Tried backing up my Thunderbird eMails using MOZ Backup.
    Always worked just fine on my old pc running W7.

    Now, with W10 on new pc, I get a warning from my BitDefender Anti Virus program that there "might" be ransomware, as MOZ Baxkup is trying to modify some file called ""

    Anyone have any experience running MOZ Backup in W10 ?
    Think it is safe to run ?

    Any thoughts on ?

    I have used MozBackup on all my Windows 10 computers without any problems. My guess is a false positive.

    MOZ Backup From OP


    Thanks for info.

    Guess I will give it a try.

    Might I please ask which link, or exactly from where, you downloaded it from ?

    I would like to use "exactly" what you are using, since it works well for you.

    Much thanks again,

Mozbackup still works fine under W10. A Thunderbird backup may take a while depending on its size. Mine was 2.1GB I back mine up monthly to an external drive and NAS just in case ;)
