Re: norton

Only 758 megabytes on my system.  How much is it taking up on yours?

Re: norton

As WTP stated - mine is also around the same size - by chance are you doing local backups to your system drive?

Re: norton

Mine backs up to local.  I copy it to an external drive;  just haven't bothered to change it to back up directly to the other drive.  Soon. 

 

Anyway.  Open My Computer and click on your C:\ drive to open it up.  If you're saving locally, you'll see a folder named N360_BACKUP.

Also, how big is this file?  Mine has gotten huge. 107 gb!  Maybe that's part of the problem.
