I had a backup drive that died and Win 10 keeps popping up a window asking to re attach my backup drive.

I can't turn it off.


Seagate Backup Plus Desk Hub 4TB External Hard Drive Black STEL4000300 $165 Australian.


Seems cheap when a 2 TB drive is 99 dollars.

I shut-off Windows backup notifacation and use Backblaze cloud Backup. https://www.backblaz...kup.html#af4759


Hard Drives die, so always backup your important files in the cloud,.. Windows offers free cloud storage with OneDrive, but I preferer Backblaze.


How to stop Windows Backup Notification,..  Control Panel -  System and Security - Security and Maintenance - Change.. -Uncheck Windows Backup.
