Norton Security with Backup New Upgrade

I am running Norton Security with Backup as I was recently forced to upgrade to it when renewing my license. I was using N360 backup before an it had a readily identifiable folder "N360" prefix. It appears that the new one uses the same prefix.  It would be nice to be able to call the target directory something else or add a system qualifier.  It is not available or obvious with the new product.  I have 3 machines that I am backing up and plan to use a drive on my local network that can be moved to a safe or offsite. What I want to do is to periodically move a backup set to an external drive and store it somewhere besides my basement for safekeeping.

There doesn't seem to be a mechanism to do so since I cannot identify the directory containing my backup information. For a package that has been around for such a long time, The Norton package seems to be very limited and short sighted in its design of usability features. I can't believe that I am the only one who sees a need for this.

No, I will never use the insecure online storage. I simply don't trust anything in the proverbial and misnamed cloud.

I tried bouncing around the new interface. I punched a lot of buttons but didn't see anything like what is described in the link. At least the navigation wasn't immediately obvious or fruitfull  I will try walking through it again
