Every online backup takes 12+ hours.  My internet speed is 75/75.

Re: Norton Security with Backup takes 12+ hours to complete an online backup everytime

Hi SKerns.

Welcome to the Norton Community Forums.

Initial backups always take some time, subsequent backups should be incremental (i.e. just backing up any files that have been added or changed) and so much faster.  Are you saying that even the second and third backup also takes 12+ hrs?  If so are you adding a lot of files in the interim?

Sorry but I am not sure exactly what you mean by an internet speed of 75/75.  If you are implying that your internet connection speed is slow then I would suggest that backing up to online servers is NOT a good idea.  You would be better backing up to a removable local drive.

Have you checked your internet speed to be sure you are getting the speeds you are provisioned for?

You can use Speedtest.net, or preferably, the speed test site provided by your ISP, which keeps traffic within your ISP's network and may be more accurate.
