Solved How do I stop windows 10 from making auto backups?

Hi all.

How do I stop Win 10 from automatically making backups?

The reason I ask is that every time a backup is made with the Windows 10 program I am advised that there was an error and I should do something about it.

Try as I may I cannot find out why I get this notification as I cannot find a problem.

But when I use a third party freebie (EaseUS ToDo Backup), this does not happen, even after I run that program to verify it's integrity.

I also have a GigaByte MB specific backup program, Smart Recovery2, and that also makes a clear backup, so Windows 10 backup should go I think because I am not having any luck with it..

So, how do I turn off Windows backup?

Regards

Thanks Derek.

A most excellent site. It looks like I may have set up the settings not quite as described?

I have printed out the instructions and will follow thru step by step when next time permits. If I still come up with a "no joy", the I will turn off the function as shown.

Regards.
