Choose the location of the files to be restored before running Norton Backup

When your Norton product restores files, it displays the backup location of the most recent backup set you ran. You can change the location to restore files from a different backup location. For example, you have backed up files to drive C and then later backed up files to CDs. You can then choose to restore files from either drive C or from the CDs.

To restore files from cloud backup, you must set the Network Cost Awareness option in the Firewall Settings window to No Limit.

Choose where to restore files from

  1. Open your Norton device security product.

    If you see the My Norton window, next to Device Security, click Open.

  2. In the Norton product main window, double-click Backup, and then click Restore Files.

  3. In the Restore Files window, under Restore From, click View All.

  4. In the window that appears, click the backup set that you want to restore, and then click OK.

    If the backup set is not visible, make sure that the media in which you had backed up your files is connected, and click the refresh icon.

    If you have activated cloud backup, the window also contains the backup set that contains the files that you backed up online from another computer. For example, you can view the backup set containing the files that you backed up from your home computer. However, the other computer must have the Norton product registered with the same Norton account.

  5. Make any other necessary changes to your restore settings, and click Restore Files.

  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to finish restoring your files.
