Does Norton automatically configure and start running backups by default? I was under the impression that it prompts you to configure it after you install the suite, but I may be wrong. If a user only has 1 disk, perhaps backing up files to that device is better than nothing. It wouldn't protect you from a hardware failure or environmental issue, but it would allow you to restore a deleted file or restore a previous version of a file. If you run your own backups to an external device or to the cloud, then just disable the backup component of the suite. I wasn't under the impression that it automatically backs up files to the primary HDD by default, but maybe I missed that since I disabled it right after I installed the suite. Are you sure that the default install automatically configures backups and stores them on the primary drive?

You would be better off bringing this up on the Norton forums. I believe the backups feature is disabled in the Comcast version of Norton 360, as Comcast offer their own Backup and Share solution through Decho/Mozy. As such it could be confusing to folks installing the Comcast Norton Security Suite, who then try to configure backups....
