Do Acronis and Norton work well together?

Hi -- I am running Norton Security Suite (get it for free with Comcast).  I also use Acronis True Image to backup an image of my hard drive.  Last night, I upgraded Acronis to the 2019 version.  It comes "Active Protection" --> with ransomware protection (using AI), and cryptomining protection. I have it configured as in the attached image.  Is this OK, or will Acronis and Norton get into a big fight?  BTW, one reason I upgraded, was they made me an offer that was hard to refuse.

Re: Do Acronis and Norton work well together?

The safest option is to only attach an external drive to the machine when you are running backups, then disconnect it.  That way you don't have to worry about ransomware.

Edit:  That is especially true if you are imaging you complete drive, not just files.

I've never used Acronis so I can't comment on compatibility.  That might be something to ask their support.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.
