 Occasionally, certain AntiVirus software may incorrectly flag or interfere with your NovaBACKUP

software from properly running. This can result in a failed backup job, failure for the application to start

entirely, or an inability to see destinations to back up your files to.  Please see the files below and add

the following folders to your AntiVirus's exception lists if you are experiencing any of these

issues and are running an AntiVirus Software on your machine.
