Import/backup of Identity safe in Norton 360 2013
I have been using Norton products for many years now, and started using Norton 360 last year with no real problems, especially using the identity safe. I was always able to back up a ID safe to a local drive on my PC or a thumb drive as a DAT file, and had no problem importing it, if need be. My PC crashed seriously the other day, and I set up a new PC, installed Norton 360 with no problems. I went to import my DAT file to the new N360 install, but in the ID safe setup or config window, there is no option to either import or export this file. The only option that is given, is to download the ID vault from thate great "cloud" I DID set up a vault the other day, but at this time, I do not remember it's password, and I had it backed up in my ID safe locally, (DUH!) I had only one log on entered into that vault anyway when I first set it up.
By the way, this issue is on a PC with Windows 8, 64 bit edition.
Isn't there anyway to do a local import of the DAT file, which I have available on a thumb drive, to a new installation of Norton 360? I have the same version of N360 on another machine, also with the latest updates, and it does have the import and export options on the screen. Please help me. I have read the other (resolved) thread on the ID safe, but the link with the screenshots, etc. has different screens than I have, and looks like a different Symantec product.
