    Uninstall dell backup and recovery windows 10


    I have a Dell Inspiron 17R laptop that came with Windows 8. I downloaded 8.1 and used that since 2013. I am now using Windows 10 and it has been it good transition until the last update. I keep getting messages about dell backup and recovery not being compatible with this version of Windows (Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.11). I would just like to unstall the Dell application since I do not need it. I have a backup of my system should I need it in the future. Do I need this program? Has anyone removed it without it causing problems?

    Hi Buck,

    Whenever we get new Dell laptops in for our users at work, we remove Dell back up and recovery and it hasn't caused any issues at all so far. If you already have a method of backing up your system without using the Dell application, and the fact that you're getting a message saying it isn't compatible with your version of Windows 10 I would say just remove it if you have no need for it, it shouldn't cause any problems at all.

    Thank you for the information. I did not think that the system needed it but wanted to communicate with someone such as yourself. Hope you have a good weekend!

    On mine I have just disabled the services for it

    So the software is still there, it never runs and if I do ever need it in the future its easy to activate again
