Making backups and ws.reputation is removing files
I read a lot about how to prevent files quarantined that are downloaded from the internet. How about copying from one drive to another, on your local network. Seem like I have tried all the tricks and cannot make this go away. I have added exclusions everywhere I can find a place to exclude them, and I have turned everything off in settings that I can find. I get warnings about not having protection and choose to return to normal after restart. But copying to or from an external backup drive, I start getting notice after notice, and it takes about 2 minutes for the program to actually bring up the information. I can select to exclude this one file, but that doesn't work either. I want to make backups of 100 GB and it takes a long time, especially when Norton continues to flag over hundreds of files. I haven't found a way to turn Norton off. How can I start my system without Norton automatically starting up, and merrily start it's quarantine service? Would I have to uninstall and then re-install Norton? I'm sue that some or all of this is covered somewhere but I have a life of my own and can't spend hours digging through threads, forums and the like. Is this the way things are always going to be? I don't have any confidence about what all Norton is "protecting" me from. It might be months before I discover that a particular thing isn't there anymore. I have invested over 25 years of software development into what I now have and it's a constant fight.
Is there ANY way I can copy files from one disk to another without this happening? Something simply like "Turn Norton off for 30 minutes?"
