Two computers - double back-up


I have a problem with my back-up.

A few weeks ago I bought a new computer, because the old one was giving problems.

I already had Norton Security on the old one, and now I installed the same program on the new one.

So far so good.

But the problem is, that both computers now are making a back-up (of the same content).

So now I don't have enough storageplace.

The question that I have is:

How can I stop the back-upmaking of the old computer?

I want to use it untill it's really broken.


Best regards,

Re: Two computers - double back-up

@Johnvan Schaijk Simply turn off backup and overlays within the NIS dashboard on the old computer. That should stop the automatic backups from that device. Let us know if this help and/or resolved your issue. Have a great Sunday.
