The World Wide Web is a pretty wide web that consists of all the possible information that the entire world needs. But it also consists of a lot of unsafe elements and viruses from which we need to be protected. Viruses and unsafe elements can sneak into a computer and cause havoc if it is not secure enough. Norton is an antivirus tool, complete in itself that works towards keeping your data protected. Each of its products, like the Norton antivirus, Norton Utility Tool, Norton 360 and more, have a bunch of features and technologies to complement the product. They help by providing warnings when we are about to use a website that is not entirely safe, declaring the safety ratings of any particular website, provide protection against phishing, helping you safely manage your passwords and much more.
These include the option of eliminating third-party software for creating an online backup. However, sometimes you may find yourself in a fix when an error occurs in the online backup. In such scenarios, all you need to do is run a few steps to troubleshoot. The error may be caused by anything, like the opening of certain files while the backup is taking place, loss of the internet connection or using or leaving open any of the files that are shared. Another significant reason could be that some other applications may have locked the files despite them being minimized or closed.
In order to fix an error that occurs in creating an online backup, there are two approaches that you can take. First, a completely new set of backup can be created. For this, it is crucial to click on the Norton application only after making sure that you have closed all possible files. Then, go to backup Settings in the Settings menu. Search through Manage Backup and click Configure. Here, click on Summary and look for the Things You can do. This will lead you to the option of ‘Create New Backup Set’.
Once you get to this step, type in the file name, click on Ok and choose What. Then, look through the Backup Source in order to remove or add the documents and files that you want to. Make sure to select the right file type and select the destination where the backup will be placed in the Where tab. Finally, click on Save Settings and select Run Backup. Once the backup process is finished, your job is done!
Another option that you have is to delete the set of old backup. Click on Settings in the Norton application. Here, click on Manage Backup in the Backup Settings option. Select Configure and choose the summary option. In the tab containing all your Backup sets, look for the name of the backup set that you want to get rid of. In Things You can do, click on Delete Backup set. This will command the computer to delete the backup and will promptly ask you if you are sure about deleting the backup. Here, select Yes and the backup will be deleted. However, if the problem persists, you can contact Norton Support Number UK.
