    Hi,

    I am a user of MOZY which i use to back-up my photos and some other smaller stuff but recently, it has been trying to upload a file which is called:

    {a1f48406-86f3-423e-a761.... and the rest of the name I can't see.

    How can i find this file? It is 1 gig in size and has been uploading for days!

    Not sure how to search for it, i have tried devon agents EasyFind but to no avail!

    Any ideas please?

    Well from the looks of the name, my guess is that it is likely a cache file from some program but that is not certain.

    Downloading one or both of the following free programs will let you see graphically how your hard disk space is being used, and can often be used as an aid to identify the largest files- GrandPerspective or Disk Inventory X.
