My friend has Norton Security Suite / Norton AntiVirus Version 188.8.131.52 on her Win7 laptop
A few weeks ago she asked me to check out the laptop because Norton's backup wasn't working anymore plus the computer was slow.
When I checked it out there was only 1% free space.
In addition to the Norton backup not working anymore there were also a number downloads too numerous to mention here and I recommended she have the computer professionally cleaned and tuned up.
--- She has done that
She purchased a 128 GB flash drive to back up to per the repairers recommendation but she just called and told me nothing is happening so I'm going to be checking that out.
However I don't use Norton and I'm not familiar on how it works even though I've tried to look it up
--- I do know she has data in each one of the library folders
So I'm wondering
Where are the Norton backups saved when there isn't external media to save to?
--- I need to find out if there is anything in whatever location that is
How to designate backups to the 128GB flash drive?
--- Even then, what's to stop that from becoming too full as her 500GB HDD was 99% full?
--- If the backup schedule is on a daily basis, that's going to be problem
Is it possible to disable Norton's backup?
As a personal note I don't understand how a professional computer person just tells her to just get a 128 flash drive and back up to it:
--- From what she told me there wasn't an explanation on how to do that as well as how to manage it.
--- I know that if an external hard drive would have been recommend she would have accepted his recommendation
--- I also know if he would have told her he would set up a backup schedule for her she would have gone along with that also.
