Please explain how to import the old 2015 Norton NIS .dat file to my 2018 NIS acct. I have Windows 8.1 and use Google Chrome most of the time.
Is this .dat file from a local vault? Have you tried importing already? What error messages do you see?
Norton changed the format of the .dat files for ID Safe backups around 2015 or so. The old files cannot be imported into newer versions of ID Safe.
Have you not been making any backups since 2015?
If you have been using a cloud vault, you may have newer backups already on your computer. Check your Documents folder for a folder called Norton Identity Safe Backups. In there would be a folder named for your email address. That folder would have newer backups than what were done in 2015.
Hello June this article explains the process. When you import select the location of the 2015 .dat file you want to import, follow the remaining instructions.
