    This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action.


    This problem started after I formatted my backup drive and set it up for automatic backups again for a fresh backup. The error message does not show a file name just a drive letter and it happens with 2 different drives. The message keeps popping up while I am working on other things and when I am not doing anything on the computer and I come back to the computer and have to close multiple windows or go to "file explore" and close all.

    :)

    there is no email program associated to perform the requested action

    I'm sure what you mean re User Accounts what is listed under Mail. There were no mail references. Same with Set defaults by app.

    there is no email program associated to perform the requested action

    Unfortunately MS made sure to make it as difficult as possible, only registered apps can be set as default.

    Like in Thunderbird for example, you have to set it up as default from within first.
