A long time back I had tested the online backup service Mozy. By long time back I mean my version was mozy-0_6_2_6-502.dmg. Today I was trouble shooting an application I am beta testing for someone. I needed console logs. Low and behold the Mozy removal script from that version was so bad it had left something behind. I have TONS of the following events showing in my Console.
8/6/08 9:15:53 PM com.apple.launchd (com.mozy.backup) posix_spawnp(“/Applications/Mozy.app/Contents/Resources/MozyBackup”, …): No such file or directory
8/6/08 9:15:53 PM com.apple.launchd (com.mozy.backup) Exited with exit code: 1
Well a bit of googling and I find that this combination works to finally get rid of that sucker.
sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mozy.backup.plist
Follow that up with going into the /Library/LaunchDaemons and tossing the file com.mozy.backup.plist into the trash. Now I have nice clean console logs for troubleshooting a real problem. Not something sucking up CPU cycles trying to relaunch every 10 seconds.
