I have a simple question. I will buy norton 360 but can I backup to a external lan HDD?
I do it. You will probably need to "map" the external drive so 360 sees it with a drive letter, probably Z.
If you don't know how to do this, try Windows help, it should "help".
dlviolin is correct. As long as you create a Mapped Network Drive to the external drive on your network then backup should work just fine.
For help creating a mapped network drive see http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/maintain/mapdrive.mspx
