<p>AUSTRALIA, Sydney – 26 May 2006 – Symantec Corp. today announced Norton Save &amp; Restore, a highly intuitive automated backup and recovery solution for consumers.</p>
<p>With simple installation, setup and built-in automation, Norton Save &amp; Restore makes it easy for home PC users to preserve valuable digital content, such as photos, documents, music and financial information. A recent IDC study indicates that while nearly 60 per cent of consumers are concerned or very concerned about loss of data folders on their PC, more than 68 per cent confess to not making backup copies to protect their data.</p>
<p>"The personal computer has become a data bank of our personal lives – families are storing a wide range of important information on their PCs, from financial data to photos, email, address books, school work, music and more," said David Freer, Senior Director, Consumer Products and Solutions, Asia Pacific at Symantec.</p>
<p>"At the same time, threats to the safety of that data are increasing and consumers are more aware of the types of threats to their personal information. A recent survey of Australian PC users show 98 per cent do not believe the Internet is safe. By simplifying backup and recovery, Norton Save &amp; Restore helps protect the digital treasures that consumers care about most."</p>
<p>Norton Save &amp; Restore offers users quick and simple ways to save the items they consider most important through pre-defined backups of common folders and file types. For added convenience, Norton Save &amp; Restore can also perform scheduled, on-demand, or event-driven backups to a wide range of media. Utilising the disk imaging power of Symantec’s award-winning Norton Ghost, Norton Save &amp; Restore also allows users the option to create an exact image of their entire hard drive without leaving the operating system or rebooting.</p>
<p>Offering users the best and most complete coverage, Norton Save &amp; Restore can automatically scan the user’s system and recommend which drives, files and folders should be backed up. Norton Save &amp; Restore takes away the guess work by automatically determining the best location to store backups. When teamed with Norton Internet Security, Norton Save &amp; Restore can automatically initiate a backup whenever it is notified about a virus or worm outbreak. To further safeguard data, Norton Save &amp; Restore enables users to encrypt and password-protect their backup files.</p>
