Windows 10: Back up reminders
Back up reminders
How do I stop the incessant reminders from the Action Centre to perform a back up?
Are the reminders from File History (guess)? What's the exact message?
Don't know where they are from, but every few weeks the Action Centre reminds me to create a backup. I use separate arrangements for my h/d backups.
If it's not file history, could be a scheduled task related to whatever program you use.
You'd need the exact text to help identify it.
Also, when it pops up, you might be able to use Winspy++ (free) to identify it- drag the target over the dialogue to get info on it.
If it's a scheduled task, TaskschedulerView (free) allows you to search tasks conveniently.

Without the message, it's a wild guess. I've never seen this.
The two systems within Windows- forgetting anything you've installed- related to backups are
File History- you can check here:
Control Panel\System and Security\File History
(default is off)
Control Panel\System and Security\Back up and Restore (Windows 7)
If you check those and they are off, can only suggest it's something inherited from Win 7 or related to a 3rd party program

Yes I can see Security and Maintenance but that just leads to "Check Backup settings. Windows cannot find the disk or network where your backups are being saved.

This is what I see:
In other words, make sure these are turned off.
Without the exact error message, can't research further.
Maybe someone else can help you. Good luck!
File history is already turned off. I will wait for the next alert and post back. Just another crappy quirk of Win 10!

I am on windows 10 Pro 10586.63 with all updates applied. Whether through Cortana or by keyboard, the data is accepted but when I hit the REMIND button it comes back with an error message saying the reminder can't be placed.

The answer to this may simply be, "Wait for the Cortana iOS app" but I thought I'd ask.
