Remove file extension from a backup category

Each backup file category contains a list of file extensions. However, you can remove a default file extension or a file extension that you added to a backup file category. Norton identifies the files with the file extension that you removed and does not back them up the next time that you run backup. For example, you do not want to back up the documents with a .rtf file extension in the Office Documents category. In this case, you can remove the .rtf file extension from that category.

Remove file extension from a backup category

  1. In the Norton main window, double-click Backup, and then click Backup Sets.

  2. On the What tab, next to File Types, check Edit File Type.

  3. Under File Types, next to a file category, click Configure.

  4. In the window that appears, select the file extension, and then click Remove.

  5. Click Save.

Thank you!
