Can't backup to external drive

My old Norton 360 use to auto backup my computer to my external drive. I don't see how to do that with the latest Norton.  Please help.

Re: Can't backup to external drive

Hi FordNorton.

Welcome to the Norton Community Forums.  

What is your latest product?  Is it Norton Security with Backup?

You should be able to go into the backup section of the interface and then select "Backup Sets".  In the next screen you can choose between your different backup sets (if you have more than one).  Once you have selected the one you want from the drop-down next to "Backup Set Name", then choose the Where tab.  If you do not immediately see the option of the drive you want click on the little recycle button to the right of "Where do you want to store your backup files?" and it should appear provided the computer can see the drive in question.  Once selected do not forget to save the settings.

I hope that helped.
