It's probably the only Symantec product I'd use anymore.

What version is it?

i back up to external and also to a 2nd. internal drive by right clicking then send to.i don,t have a program to do it.

Well ya do now, the only fair test is to try it to see if it works for you, you might not like it,have to say i'm with Dio Sic on the only symantec prog i would use (used it for a couple of years) served me well.
We all like to change things from time to time so i plumped for Acronis true image and thats what i use now...
