Norton 360 backup drive disappears

I just installed Norton 360 trial and setup a backup on my second partion(D)
of my WD 640 GB.

But when i access the Norton Backup Drive through My computer the window disappears and the drive vanishes!

So am i doing something wrong or should i try Norton Internet Security?

NIS doesn't have backup functionality.

But what do you mean by "the Norton backup Drive"?
Does it make a separate partition, like Acronis Secure Zone or something?

It makes a separate folder in My Computer with a link to backup's from all drives.

I was referring to your question in the other thread, where you asked if it would be better to switch to NIS.

I think it should work the way you set it up, but I can't really give you any help because I never used 360.

But I'm sure others will be able to help you. (I hope)

Good luck.

Seems to be a bug, but that's good because then there's nothing wrong with your setup, and a fix will be made soon. (i hope)

Good luck
