Mozy (on out of here) Backup for Mac

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[1] (com.mozy.backup[1457]) posix_spawnp(“/Applications/Mozy.app/Contents/Resources/MozyBackup”, …): No such file or directory 

8/6/08 9:15:53 PM com.apple.launchd[1] (com.mozy.backup[1457]) 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.
