How to do a cloud backup of folders on drive D

I started to configure the Cloud Backup option within Norton Security. However, what I want to do is backup selected folders on my Drive D (where I keep my data, with software on drive C), but I cannot find a way to do this.

I can do a backup by file type from Drive D, but that's not what I want. And in the default setup I can backup up folders on drive C, but again that's not what I want.

I imagine my set up is a fairly common one - software on Drive C, and data files on drive D - so I guess I can't be alone in having this issue.

Has anyone found a way to do this ?

Re: How to do a cloud backup of folders on drive D

Hello Joe, have a look into your settings for managing backup sets. Although my drive D: is removable media you should be able to click that drive and select the contents you want to add to the backup set.

Re: How to do a cloud backup of folders on drive D

Thanks, guys for the help - I finally managed to do what I wanted, but I have to say that the interface is not very intuitive. By clicking on the "include folders" and "exclude folders" buttons, I managed to backup just those folders I needed. However, the first step is to exclude all drive C and drive D and then include only those folders on drive D that I wanted to backup. It took me several goes to work this out.

Peterweb - I have two physical drives C & D, which are both RAIDed, so I have plenty of protection against physical failure. But I also have real-time synchronization via the Cloud with my other 2 PCs; a daily backup to a NAS; and now a peridic backup to Norton (really just to protect against ransomware).

Once again, thanks for your help
