Even those who can’t use it

Like it or not, the Windows Backup app installed in Windows 10 and Windows 11 is here to stay, with Microsoft calling it a “system component” that can’t be removed.

Users who did not have the application installed began receiving it automatically on August 22, 2023. The Windows Backup app has become a must-have for all Windows 10 and Windows 11 users, even those who can’t use it.

Because Windows Backup requires a Microsoft account, Azure Active Directory (AAD) and (Active Directory) AD users cannot use the application to back up their data.

Windows Backup saves specific files and folders, as well as settings, account information, and applications. All this information is stored in the cloud, so the device can be easily restored by connecting to the Internet. An additional problem is that using Windows Backup can quickly require you to upgrade to a more expensive Microsoft cloud storage plan.

In response to negative reviews, Microsoft stated that “because Windows Backup is a system component, it cannot be removed.” However, the company has promised to release an update to prevent the app from appearing in the interface, specifically on Windows 10 Pro, Education, and Enterprise editions, as well as Windows 11 that use AAD and AD. Simply put, the application will continue to be present in the system but will be hidden and no longer noticeable.
