Norton 360 premier backup and cloud storage

Is there a way to set cloud storage as a backup location? I do not see a way to do this when I try to run a backup. Thanks

Hi,

When you click on the 'where' tab while setting up a backup job what locations are available to you?

Thanks

Assuming you are not talking about the online storage that comes with N360 but some other cloud storage such as Skydrive, I think the only way to do that is if the cloud storage can be mapped as a local drive.

Yes , this is what I am trying to do and I don't know how . I am using Just Cloud to try to store the data but it does not show in my list of locations. Thanks for the reply

I do not think that is possible with N360.Norton needs to see a drive attached to your computer, or its' own online backup.

 

According to their web site, JustCloud constantly backs up your files. 360 would be duplicating that effort.

This is what I thought too but just cloud is backing up 7gb and norton wants to back up 61gb

Hi,

360's rst backup will be a complete backup of the partition. After that it will do incremental backups. So, the first one will be a monster and after that they will be more reasonable in size, unless you are doing a lot of downloading and changing. I'm not sure what just cloud is trying to back up so I can't comment on the size of that files. I expect that it too uses a compression scheme so that may also be a factor in the file sizes.
