Turn on or turn off Norton backup

When the Backup option is turned on, your Norton product automatically backs up your files when your computer is idle. However, if you want to temporarily disable backup, you can turn it off from within the program.

When you turn off backup, the backup status in the Norton main window changes from Protected to Disabled. In the Disabled state, your Norton product disables all automatic backup of files. You can use the Run Backup option in the main window if you want to back up your files from all the backup sets.

You can turn off or turn on backup from the Settings window, Backup Settings window, or from the Backup Details window.
