Norton 360 Premier - Delete old backup sets
I am running a dual boot system Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Both systems have become somewhat overcrowded and need reinstalling.
Reinstalling Windows 10, using the option to retain “my” data worked OK. Reinstalling Norton 360 Premier also went fine except the message “You are running short of online storage…..” starting to appear. Because I do not backup large folders of Pictures, Music Films or Videos just Office type folders this message must have been incorrect, (Still 9.6 GB available). Tried re-starting and re-booting a few times with no success.
Uninstalled Norton software and reinstalled; message did not appear again.
As part of refreshing the system I want to reorganise the hard drive to set the partitions to be more in line with my current work. Therefore the “old” backup sets will not reflect my present configuration and need deleting.
Trying to delete the old backup set failed, with the message “you must have at least one backup set”.
Tried creating a new backup set but this also failed with message “Could not run due to maintenance being performed on your online backup account”
SURALLY THERE MUST BE A SIMPLE METHOD TO DELETE OUT OF DATE BACKUP SETS
Any help or assistance would be muck appreciated
