Norton Backup is using-up all of my Disk Space

Hi all,

I'm having an issue with Norton Backup on Windows 8.1.....it seems to be taking up all of my disk space. My hard drive is appox 750 GB with only about 250 GB used prior to Norton Backup...Now all of the hard disk seems to be in use.

It almost seems like the backup file is being backed-up as well, creating multiple backups within backups until the whole disk space is used....

Can someone please help me resolve this issue?

Thank you,

Hi joetipton81,

Am I correct in thinking you are using your C: drive for your backup?  You need to select a different location for your backups - such as an external HD.

Also please let us know if you are using Norton Backup or if the backup is part of your Norton Security Package
