    Removing windows 10 backup settings


    Windows 21H1 I no longer use the windows backup but cannot find a way to delete the settings completely. I have turned off file sharing but there seems no way to stop it connecting to the drive i originally used. I do not want to change the drive letter of the drive unless i really have to. Thanks for any help John

    :)

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

    Removing windows 10 backup settings

    Reinstalling Windows 10 to sell a PC - is the 'Remove everything' option enough?

    Restore factory settings do list Removes your personal files, apps and settings, and reinstalls the version of Windows that came on this PC.

    So if this isn't true well than just erase the drive and install a clean Windows 10 with all the drivers u need but why should it be true
