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.!

How come I am unable to restore files from Norton 360 backup to my new computer? 

by on June 6, 2011

Q: I’ve tried several times, unsuccessfully, to restore online files from my old computer to my new one. The files were backed up using Norton 360v5. I was on the phone with a Norton tech for three hours with no solution. The few files I have on my new computer are backed up using the same program. As a test I tried to restore a file from my new computer and was able to successfully do so. The tech instructed me to try again at another time, still no luck.

How do I restore the data from my Windows XP computer to my Vista computer via Norton 360? 

by on December 8, 2010

Q: I have two laptops, Toshiba Satellites one XP the other Vista. The XP broke down and the screen is black, HD is OK. I used Norton 360 for back up. I have Norton 360 in both computers. How do I restore the data from my XP to my Vista computer via Norton 360?

I went to Vista computer and run back up, but it only backs up from its own data, not from XP computer. I have the same ID and password for both, I thought everything is backed up somewhere for both computers under my ID and password. I don’t know what to do.

Why didn’t my emails get restored when I did a restore from Norton 360 backup? 

by on November 16, 2010

Q: I have Windows Vista, which has Windows Mail on it. I ran a back-up on my computer using Norton 360 on Monday of last week, like I do every Monday. On Wednesday, my computer crashed & I had to reload the original factory settings on my computer. I restored all of my files from the Norton 360 back-up, and everything is fine except none of my emails are coming back up. Shouldn’t all of emails that went to Windows Mail have been backed up in the back-up I performed? I sure hope I didn’t lose all of these because they are all important work emails.
