Installing optical backup driver

Your Norton product offers several storage location options for backups. You can choose a different location if your backup needs change or if you want to store your backups in several locations for added security.

If you want to back up your important files and data to a CD or DVD Drive, you must configure the optical backup drive on your computer. The optical backup drive helps you read or write data on optical discs.

When you select CD or DVD Drive as the backup location for the first time, your Norton product prompts you to configure the optical backup drive on your computer.

You cannot select automatic scheduling of backups when you back up to CDs, DVDs, or Blu-ray discs for the first time. When the backup is complete, you can click View Details in the Backup window to view the status of your last backup.

To install optical backup driver

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

  2. On the Where tab, select the CD or DVD Drive option.

    In the Manage Backup Sets dialog box that appears click Yes, and then click Run Backup.

  3. In the dialog that appears, click OK.

    Optical drivers are installed automatically on your system. Once installed, your Norton product starts backing up your files and folders.

  4. When you are prompted, insert a blank CD or DVD into the CD-ROM drive and click OK.

    You can view the progress of the backup in the Backup window.

  5. When the backup is complete, click Close.
