How do I stop win10 asking me to Backup when using FBackup?

Hi folks, Bit the bullet and installed win10 earlier this year. Happy with that decision, but glad I waited a while before so doing. Now I get win10 notifications that "my backup" hasn't been run... when I am only using FBackup to do so. And I had run backup only a day ago... Tried wading ...

Re: FBackup 6.0 file verification extremely slow

Same problem here. I went and tried manually updating to the latest version (6.0.90..... or something) and still painfully slow. I have ~1,125,000 files to take care of... Worse than watching paint dry. And there is no way I am sending my .fkc file as it is currently sitting at 245MB... that's 245.....

v5 Hanging

I'm trying v5... not happy so far. It said it imported my backup file from v4, but choked. I've tried running another (new) backup- it has hung on 99% "prepare files list". It has taken many hours. Possibly >12 hrs, but I'd left it alone and went out to do some work, so not sure when the h...

<p>When I use the word "FBackup", the spell checker does what you see doing here.</p> <p>I have sent an email with just the first line above in the post.</p> <p>The log gives me a list of all the files backed up, maybe I'm being fussy, but I just wanted the number of files (without counting them all...

<p>I've been a user of Fbackup for a few weeks now, and am impressed. I had been fighting with WDSmartware before that, and it just didn't want to play ball at all. Didn't want to recognize a WD External drive, at which stage I gave up wasting time with it. Since installing FBackup, my backups are a...
