Backing up MAS200/90 to MozyPro

Hello,

We are trying to backup a MAS200 system to MozyPro, problem is the entire accounting folder is 17 Gigs, which is quite too large.  My question to you is, is there a way to know which files I need to backup without backinig up unnecessary files?  For example inside the accounting folder there are 5 folders:

Copy of MAS90 (which is obviously probably unnecessary)
###-FLO Obsoletes
MAS90
MAS200_351
MAS200 TTU_941

I have no idea what the 351 or 941 folders are and even just the MAS90 folder is 5.8gigs, which we would ideally cut down to 2 gigs or so, the company is small(1-10 employees) and i can't imagine they have that much accounting data.

Thanks in advance for your advice!
-Larry

Additional info: the reason why i say Mas200/90 is that when i open the software on their machines, it is titled MAS200, however in the server i see both MAS200 and MAS90 folders as mentioned above.  I thought this maybe was from a past upgrade as I am unfamiliar with the MAS software.

the MAS90 folder is the only one you need.  i've never seen those other folders in my environment (formerly 3.71, and now 4.10).  when i've worked with our reseller, they have always specified the MAS90 folder as the one to backup.

to test, you could do a standalone installation of MAS and then copy over that MAS90 folder to verify that all of your data is there. i do a standalone installation quite often for testing...  to do it, you just install the MAS server and client software on a test computer.  i usually do this on a computer that is not on the network, just to make sure that no one accidentally connects to it instead of the production MAS.  then, copy over your backup files and wha-la, you have a complete copy of your production MAS installation.

more info..
our 4.10 environment is the following folder path:
\\server name\Sage Software\MAS 200\Version4\MAS90

(i backup the MAS90 folder and all subfolders below it)

in our 3.71 environment, the path was:
\\server name\MAS200\MAS90

and when we were on 3.71, i just backed up the MAS90 folder and all its subfolders.
