If you are willing to disable all of the backup shell extensions this is very simple. This includes icon overlay, Norton backup drive, and the context menu. Follow these directions:
At this point the Norton Backup Drive should disappear after you refresh. If you would like to keep the other shell extensions we may have to consider this option in a future release as we didn't anticipate users wanting to disable the drive.

Michael: Some of us are just plain nervous about storing our data online, period. Intuit in particular scares the bejabbers out of me.No matter how good we think our security measures are, there is always the possibility that some hacker will find a way past them at some time in the future. And speaking from many years of experience as a retired CIA employee, no matter how closely you vet your employees, even though they are squeaky clean when they first come through your front door, a disgruntled employee can sometimes go bad later. There are certainly plenty of known cases of security breaches caused by employees on the inside.
I use a couple of Linksys NAS200 file servers along with NTBACKUP, the Windows supplied program. I turned your backup program off completely in N360 V2. I like what I see in N360 V3 - especially the fact that the backup occurs in the background. With NTBACKUP, I usually have to leave my systems running overnight to do this. There are two things I would like to see in your future developments:
1. A simple switch to totally disable writing backups to the Internet.
2. Use of the standard Microsoft files GUI to allow us to backup to the device of our choice on the network. Your backup settgings currently do not allow "off computer" storage even though I have mapped the NAS200 drives to my computer.

I think your request is valid and I will pass it off to our Product Management Team as a possible requirement. However simply selecting another location will not send any data at all about your backup or backup files to our servers.
If you would like to post in a new topic as this one has been solved I can help you with your mounted drive issue as they should show up as a backup location.
