Symantec Corp. has unveiled a new version of Norton Online Backup which now supports both Windows and Mac on up to five computers, linked together through the same central account.

The updated version gives consumers the ability to share documents with others, to transfer files between any of their computers, and to retrieve backed up files at anytime from any Web connection, including up to 90 days of file revisions.

The Norton Online Backup service is available worldwide in 24 languages.

Norton Online Backup simplifies sharing large files with friends and colleagues, or transferring data between household computers. Through just their Web browser, users can select and share any of the files they have backed up by generating unique download links that can be emailed to any address.
