Windows 10: How to stop Backup Notification Solved

    How to stop Backup Notification

    The new downgraded notification centre keeps nagging me about not taking a backup. That's because I use other software to take my backups.

    How can I turn this particular notification off? I suspect that regedit is likely to be involved which strikes me as a seriously retrograde step (the new Settings thingie is seriously dumbed down compared to the old Control Panel stuff).

    Maybe I should look to the Enterprise Edition, as I can't see corporate customers lying down for the retrograde changes.

    Err no, that controls the notification area icons in the Task Bar. I'm after stopping the Windows Notification Tool which appears in that Task Bar from telling me that I haven't run a backup.
