Is it okay to tell Norton 360 not to backup my files since I back them up myself?

by on June 21, 2012

Q: Hi, I’ve recently bought norton anti virus 360. After every scan It backup my files. I do not wish to have them backed up. As I’ve backed them up myself on a usb passport. Is It safe to turn the backup off? Also It backed up for a while but I cancelled It. Does that mean It’s took up alot of memory? Halfway thru It stops & Say’s I’ve not got enough storage but I press continue anyway or find some other space.!

    If you are currently backing up your computer with another device then you can cancel the Norton backups. If a backup completed then it takes up space. If it is canceled it should not store data.

    You can always check the location data is saved to and see if there is data. If you are canceling them then just delete the data from Norton since it should not be needed.
