    Here are two tutorials by Brink that can explain things better than I can.

    Setup Windows Backup in Windows 10 Backup Restore Tutorials

    Turn On or Off Schedule for Windows Backup in Windows 10 Backup Restore Tutorials

    I personally don't use Windows Backup. I use Macrium Reflect to do my backup and clones.

    Of course, each to their own.

    File history is not Windows Backup. File history was introduced in Win 8 and replaced Windows Backup from Win 7.

    In Windows 10 they brought back Windows Backup and Restore (Windows 7). You see it below file history in your second screen shot.

    On your first Image click on "Change Settings" and change the schedule / disable it.

    You should be able to uncheck run on a scheduled basis (disable)

    If you found another method that is also good.

    Happy Holidays
