Re: How do I downgrade from version 6 to 5?

In NIS 2012 220.127.116.11, when you initiate an Identity Safe Import Data, you are given the option to look for the older .NPM files.
You can restore from .NPM backups in all versions of Norton 360. But N360v6 cannot save a backup as an .NPM file. The new backup format is .DAT, and earlier versions of N360 cannot import or restore using that format. Therefore, if one downgrades to v5, one cannot restore the contents of Identity Safe from an exported file created in v6. Instead, one would need to use a previously saved .NPM file created with an earlier installation of v5. .NPM is forward compatible to v6, but .DAT is not backwards compatible to v5.
