  1. Thank you, thank you! Wasted half an hour on Norton trying to sort this out – they are useless! Your instructions were perfect and the job is now done, and so simply too. Can’t thank you enough.

    1. You’re most welcome!! I was in the same situation and then finally I found this solution from my end. I’m glad to know that my research helped you.

      1. Thanks for your reply! It’s now turned off, but I’ve got another problem – I am getting constant messages from Norton saying that my online storage is full, despite having turned it off. It’s really annoying!

          1. Thank you for your response, and sorry to be so long replying – been poorly this week. Unfortunately the backup I’ve got is the “default” one and can’t be deleted but I dug around a bit and it looks as if it’s empty. However, it kept telling me it was full. I didn’t get the message when I turned on my computer these past few days, though. Not sure what’s going on! I must say Norton is over-complicated…

          2. If it is the default one then it would be deleted. Anyway, please allow me 1-2 days to double-check the settings to see if there is no change in the Norton settings. I’ll update you here very soon.

  2. Perfect. After a long search I found this 4 click to disable tip and it worked like a charm. Thank you!

  3. Great directions…they worked.

    Question: My C Drive is partitioned. The partitioned portion is named E Drive. Is their a way to have Norton Backup do a backup of the C drive without backing up the partitioned portion?

    1. Yes, Norton can take a backup of your custom device. There is a custom option for that where you can remove the E partition. By default, there are some folders in the C drive that are under backup in Norton like my documents, my downloads, and my desktop. The E drive should not have been mentioned.

  4. I am still getting the pop that I don’t have enough space to backup my data even though I have turned it off. How do I get THAT to stop?

  5. Thank you so much for this info. I have been trying forever to disable it. Now it is sorted
