Endless Backup Failures
I have been a satisfied Norton customer for many years. I have an HP PC running Windows 10.
Recently, the Norton software has indicated I'm at high security risk and it's urgent that I back everything up immediately. I've followed all instructions and step by step directions.
Initially, the PC apparently did not have sufficient memory. I purchased more memory TWICE at $39.99 (or similar) EACH. No success backing up. Then I tried backing up to discs. No success. Finally, I purchased an Apple iCloud memory subscription at $0.99/month. I can see the newly added memory in "Devices and drives."
At last, a backup said "completed" at 100%. But STILL had Norton warning alerts, red X mark on icon, "backup at risk" on support screen.
The sayings that go something like, "don't keep trying a process that failed expecting a different result," AND "those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it" (Churchill?) are true. Stubborn optimist that I am, I must have tried backing up 6 times. Each time with renewed hope when the 100% complete message appeared.
Question: Do Norton backup messages EVER correpond with one another?
I am frustrated beyond words. So much money, time, energy wasted. Should I discontinue all Norton Subscriptions, demand refunds (or at least partial refunds covering the interim between the time everything worked just fine with the recent headaches) and find different security products? I have Norton on my PC, iPhone, and Android.
One other thing: Since doing the last failed backup, the PC is running at least 50% slower than before.
