by apeman91 / December 15, 2007 11:06 PM PST

I recently found out about 'Adrive' an online storage site. I want to know if i can link norton 360 to Adrive, so that when it backs up my pc's files it will backup onto that site and not keep asking me for CD's.

Have you tried using their Secure Online storage as backup location?

"Configure Norton 360 to back up files to Secure Online Storage
Start Norton 360.
Click Tasks & Settings.
In the Tasks & Settings window, click Change Backup Settings.
Next to Backup Location, click Change.
Click Secure Online Storage.
If prompted, type the email address and the password used to create your Norton Account."

When you do the above, you can send yout backup at their online storage. No need another service.

Hi Andrew,

This is Mike from the Norton Authorized Support team. By default, when you purchase Norton 360, you have 2 GB worth of storage on Symantec's servers at no extra charge.To access this feature do the following:
1. Launch the main Norton 360 window by double-clicking on the Norton icon in the system tray.
2. When the window appears, single-click on ht e"Backup and Restore" button.

3. A window will appear and let you know the status of the Backup and Restore option. If it says "disabled," then click on the link that says Enable Backup.
4. The next window, choose "Setup," and you will then see the Folders that will be backed up. In the "Backup Location," Option #2) choose "Secure Online Backup."
5. In the Option # 3 set the schedule that will suit your needs. The click the "Close" button.

As long as your computer is online during the specified backup time, your files will be backed up securely.

Please try these steps and post back and let me kno how it goes.
Thank you,

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
