I recently used Norton 360 to create backup service but the backup files are encrypted. How can I decrypt them?
Hi John Neimer.
Welcome to the Norton Community Forums.
If you use the restore feature of N360 then you can restore any of the backed up files to their original location or to a new one of your choosing. Once restored the file will be in its original format.
Thanks Andmike. I tried the 'restore to original' but no joy. Pleas can you be more precise? J Neimer
Hello again John Neimer.
Not sure what your attachment is supposed to be but do make sure that it does not contain any personal information.
Also not sure how to be more precise. Open N360; go to the backup section and select Restore Files; select the location where your files have been backed up; browse through the files until you can select the one/ones you want; then I suggest you should select a new location to restore to (its easier to check for a test of one or two files); then click on the "Restore Files" box and wait for it to finish. Look in the location you have chosen, you may have to drill down through the directories as if you tell in to restore in a folder "test" then the actual files will probably be in a subdirectory of "test" similar to the directory structure on the original drive.
Did that help?
Thanks again Andmike but still no joy. I think I may have misunderstood how it works! J Neimer
Some questions so that I might have a better idea of the problem.
I look forward to hearing back from you.
