disabled backup on one pc, does it affect others?

I bought Norton 360 for 5 computers I own. I want to backup the data from the first PC, but not from the 2nd, to Norton's online backup.

I set up the default backup set on the first PC.

On the 2nd PC, I disabled backup from the main Norton 360 panel. Will this disrupt the first PC's backup, or does this disable backing up only from the second PC?

Thank you.

I don't use the backup feature of N360 but I'm pretty sure the machine with backups disabled won't affect the other.

Cheers.

Thanks, Krusty13. Anyone who has used backups on multiple machines and knows for sure?

Disabling one won't disable the other.

No need to worry unless you are paranoid(18).  

Each installation is treated separately.  The only connection is in the handling of the overall license.

You say that you set up the default backup on the first PC.  I would just suggest that you check that the "default" is what you want and that all the files you want to be backed up, are being.  I do not know if you have tried it yet but I would recommend that you look at the "restore" feature to check that all the files you would hope to be there are, and you might also like to try restoring one or two files to prove that the process actually works.  It is always best to do this when there is not a crisis.  But then if you are paranoid you will probably have done this already.
