Norton Security and HDD backups


I have just upgraded to Norton Security and have realised that it does not have a system back up tab.

Can anyone tell me how I can access the last back up set which is on an external drive in the event I needed to do so?




Re: Norton Security and HDD backups

Hi mercman149.

Welcome to the Norton Community Forums.

What Norton software did you use to make the backup?

If you still want Norton to handle your backups then have you thought about using Norton Security with Backup?  It not only has a backup capability but it comes with more licenses...

If you look at the drive with your current backups you will probably see a folder in the root of the drive called N360_BACKUP.  If so look in that folder and see if the files arestore.loc and arestore.exe are in it.  If so you should be able to use arestore.exe to restore any files in the backup.

Did that help?
