Norton Online Backup Drive

I have Norton 360 Premium installed on my computer, wife's and son. For some reason, either just recently or for the first time I noticed it, under My Computer is an icon for the backup drive. Once clicking on that it gives me an opportunity to restore files. That is fine for me, but I do not necessarily want my wife or son to have access to those files. I am the only one who uses the online backup. 

I have changed the settings to not show the drive on their computers, but if they change it back, they will have access to it. Is there a way to limit access?

Hello ghasenei

You can turn it off via the program settings. Note it will remove it from being accessed under all profiles though.

  • Open the Norton 360 client from the desktop shortcut or the system tray icon.
  • Go to Settings on the top of the screen.
  • Go to Backup Settings.
  • Uncheck Norton Backup Drive.
  • Save the changes and you're done.

It may take a moment but it will go away.
