Can you back up to an external hard drive from Norton Security like you could from Norton 360?

Additional info: I'm using version 22.2.0.31 on Win 7.1. I can't find way to backup to an external hard drive

Re: can you back up to an external harddrive from Norton Security

Hello Alan

You would need a backup program to backup to an external hard drive. If you wanted to back up using Norton, you should have bought Norton Security with backup which is a different program where you can backup like with N360. The program is good for up to 10 devices.

I have Norton Security, but I also have a separate program that backs up to an external hard drive.

I believe there is a separate Norton Backup program though. I know that Ghost is no longer available.

Success always occurs in private and failure in full view. Windows 10 Pro 64 bit 1903 Norton Core Security Plus 22.19.8.65 Core Firmware 288 Chrome latest version.

Hi, Alan. You can still backup to an external drive using MS Backup and Restore via the Action Center.

You can choose to make a system image, and also which files you want to back up.

Best bet by far is to go for SSR 2013 R2 desktop edition which is the new version of Ghost and can backup to any drive, internal or external, the latter recommended.
