How to transfer Identity Safe logins to a new Windows user profile?

I set up a new profile on my computer and I want to transfer logins to this new profile from another profile. I understand there's a way to make a "backup" of the identity safe logins file but there's no documentation on how to do this. I am using Norton Internet Security 2010 Version 17.8.0.5

Hi mark069,

 

You can find information on how to export your Identity Safe data over here:

In addition, you can upgrade for free to NIS 2011 with a current subscription:

Hi mark069,

 

There is documentation in the Norton Help feature in your program, but the link below will also explain how to do a backup of your Identity Safe, which you can then restore to the new profile.  This is done within the Norton program, whereas Yaso_Kuuhl's link points to instructions for recovering your data after your program expires.

Thanks - I just did the export to a USB drive. As soon as I clicked settings I saw the export feature and then everything was easy!
