Norton 360 Surprised Me with a Full Backup (which may have failed)
Greetings Sports Fans,
Last night, after the monthly MS Patch Tuesday (Win 10 Pro) and subsequent reboot, I ran a backup, like I always do, with no other apps open. The backup is to a networked drive attached to my router. Last night, instead of doing a backup of things that had changed, it appeared to attempt to do a full backup some 35000 files. Since that takes 5 hours, I went to bed. This morning, it was stuck at 56% backing up a photo that had been backed up years ago. No cursor, no spinning things, nothing. I assumed it had failed so I closed the window and started again. It finished in 3 minutes backing up 6 files.
My questions: Why did it try to do a full backup? Why did it fail? What is the status of my backup? How do I be assured that my PC's files are really backed up?
