Create a new backup set

You can create multiple backup sets with different configurations. For example, you can create a backup set to back up your pictures to your local fixed disk. You can also configure different schedules for each backup set.

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

You can identify each backup set with a backup set name. The default name of a backup set is DefaultSet. You can save a backup set with the default name as well. But, whenever you create a new backup set, you must provide a name for the backup set. The maximum character length of a backup set name is 32 characters. You cannot create more than 10 backup sets.

Create a new backup set

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

  2. On the Summary tab, under Things You Can Do, click Create new backup set.

  3. In the window that appears, type a name for your backup set, and then click OK.

  4. On the What tab, under File Types, select a file category.

  5. In the Manage Backup Sets window, click Save Settings.
