Fix common issues if Norton Fix Now fails

When Norton detects a security threat or system performance issue, it shows a Fix Now alert. If clicking Fix Now in the alert window does not fix your problem, try a solution below.

Shortage of cloud storage space

Your Norton product subscription comes with an allotment of secure cloud storage space. When your Norton product performs a cloud backup, it calculates the amount of space that it needs for the backup.

If your cloud storage does not contain sufficient space for the backup, your Norton product notifies you. You can either choose to buy more storage space or remove the previously backed up files and free up some space.

Provision to buy additional online storage is not available for the Norton 360 plans. For the Norton 360 plans, you must upgrade to the next higher plan. For more details, contact Member Services and Support.
