Backup & Sync
I have Webroot Secure Anywhere which has a backup feature. I don't want this and have disabled it only to get a message that my changes are only temporary and will be rewritten upon the next Webroot update. Frustrating! How can I stop backup from transferring info from my computer without my knowledge or consent? Thanks in advance for your help.

Welcome to the Community Forums...glad to have you onboard. :D
You have the Complete version as it is the only version that has the online storage feature. ;)
When you say that you have "...disabled it..." would you explain how you have done this? Reason I ask is because I run Complete as well but do not use the 'Backup & Sync' feature and I do not get "...get a message that my changes are only temporary and will be rewritten upon the next Webroot update". By the way, if it helps and your configuration is like mine you should see a cross in blue circle, to the left of the 'Backup & Sync' option, in the main GUI.
Let's start there and see what the position is, and then try to take it from there.
As for why purchase Complete and not use the features, I completely comprehend: it is 5 device, and there are other features it has other than the backup.......
A good point...re. the settings changes that are controlled by the Console setting. One area to look at with Restorer, thanks. :D
Should be OK, thanks...but will tag you if I run into difficulties (though I am sure that you will be watching later on...;)), as that is what TEAMWORK is...as you so often say.
Waiting for Restorer to come back so will pick up then.
Merry Festive Season to you.
Been doing a bit of research on this over the Xmas break and would say that the Devices tab displays information about each device with Backup & Sync configured. It also shows the storage folders associated with each device. To make sure that you are completely disconnected from backups...as you desire...you need to check those settings if you have not already done so.
For how to do so/where to look please see the following link:
Hope that is of assistance? If so...great. If not then plase post back and I will see if I can help further.
