Modify or rename a backup set

When you create a new backup set, Norton applies the default configuration for the backup set. You can change the configuration if the default configuration does not meet your needs.

You can modify a backup set to include or exclude files or file categories or choose another backup destination to back up your files. You can change the schedule of a backup set. You can also rename a backup set if the name does not describe the backup set after you modify the configuration.

The maximum character length of a backup set name is 32 characters.

Modify a backup set

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

  2. On the Summary tab, in the Backup Set Name drop-down list, select the backup set that you want to modify.

  3. Under Backup Set Summary, view the details of the backup set, and do the following:

    • To include or exclude files or file categories in a backup set, click What, and change the settings.

    • To change the backup destination, click Where, and change the settings.
